How to change the Access Type for the domain?

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 the extension to function smoothly.

To change the Access Type, please click "Edit details" under "Actions", and click on the dropdown list of Access Type to select authentication method for the domain.

If you wish to make changes on the Access Type for multple entries, we would recommend you to export the E-resource Domains, make amendments, save it and then import them back on the dashboard. For more instruction, please read this article.
