KnowledgeNet

Preamble:
The provisioning and configuration needed for KnowledgeNet(KN) requires richer data from the schools LDAP(network) directory than normal. This richer data needs to be added to to the LDAP.

What extra data is needed ... Both mlepRole (Teacher or student) and SMSPersonID (aka SmsPersonId data) to be present in LDAP for KnowledgeNET to recognise the user after authentication, and login to occur.

What data is needed ... Both mlepRole (Teacher or student) and SMSPersonID (aka SmsPersonId data) to be present in LDAP for KnowledgeNET to recognise the user after authentication, and login to occur.

Adding data via Smartnet
Both mlepRole (Teacher or student) and SMSPersonID (aka SmsPersonId data) to be present in LDAP for KnowledgeNET to recognise the user after authentication, and login to occur.
These two variable are NOT present in SmartNet natively. You need to ring or email Smartnet to ask if they can be put in your LDAP.
Once done these two fields will appear on the Smartnet users page for each user.
The next step is to populate those variables.

  1. Manually fill in the mlepRole space.
    It is a drop down box and has 5x options, Student, TeachingStaff, NonTeachingStaff, ParentCaregiver and Alumni. 
  2. Manually fill in the SMSPersonID with the SMS number
    or
    Email a spreadsheet of user names and SMS numbers to SmartNet who will automatically fill in the spaces for you.
