In the occasion that your library has changed the authentication system, please ensure to update this on the Lean Library’s dashboard to ensure a smooth transition for the end-users.

If you are shifting from Proxy to OpenAthens or Shibboleth, please note that it is possible to keep both Proxy and OpenAthens and/or Shibboleth as your authentication systems. To do this, please follow the below steps to get it set up:

To avoid interfering with your user's workflow during the trial period, you can make these changes in your beta version first. Once it is tested successfully, you can make the same changes to the live version. Please click here for more info.

1: On the dashboard > Access > Proxy Settings, please check if your Proxy Settings are still ON

(for OpenAthens) 2: Next, please click Access > OpenAthens Settings > switch ON Enable OpenAthens > fill in your OpenAthens Entity ID and scope. For more details, please refer here

(for Shibboleth) 2: please click Access > Shibboleth Settings > switch ON Enable Shibboleth > fill in your Shibboleth Redirector Type and Identity Provider (IdP). For more details, please refer here

After you have saved the changes, please allow at least 1 hour before testing.

If you happen to use both Proxy, combined with OpenAthens and/or Shibboleth, you will need to identify the Access Type on your e-Resource domain to enable it to function smoothly.
