New developer documentation for accessing user's affiliated institution from XSEDE Web SSO

An updated version of the XSEDE Web SSO for Application Developers guide is now available that includes a new section on how applications can access and use a user's affiliated institution.  An application may want to use affiliated institution information to either customize the user's experience or log the information for statistical purposes, for example.   

XSEDE's Web Single Sign-On (Web SSO) service provides a uniform, consistent, secure way to sign on to web applications using XSEDE user IDs

XSEDE's Web SSO service is used by applications provided by XSEDE and by XSEDE community members, including the XSEDE User Portal (XUP), the Community Software Repository (CSR), science gateways and other research portals, training websites, and more. Using the XSEDE Web SSO service, any application can use XSEDE user IDs as the basis for its sign-on mechanism.

XSEDE's Cyberinfrastructure Integration team (XCI) has provided a new debugging tool for XSEDE's Web Single Sign-on (Web SSO) feature.

XSEDE Web applications--including the XSEDE User Portal (XUP)--use the Web SSO feature to enable users to login using their XSEDE username and password, their campus login systems, or other login systems such as Google or ORCID. Anyone who hasn't already registered with XSEDE is guided to the XSEDE user portal to register.
