In cooperation with ACOnet (Austrian Academic Computer Network) and content providers, the JKU aims to make more use these technologies. The requirement is that the respective content provider (publishing company, provider, etc.) makes this interface available. In this case, the individual providers should indicate in DBIS, opens an external URL in a new window how to access Shibboleth.
Register via Shibboleth using the information provider's respective website.
Search the website for terms such as Shibboleth Login, Institutional Login, Select your region or group, Login for organizations/institutions.
Next, select the JKU. Some providers will require selecting the federation before selecting the institution. In this case, it is the ACOnet federation.
