Questions about Authentication Type options under Account Preferences in PROOF

Hello, eRA are working on the Single Sign on authentication method for PROOF; accessing PROOF as a regular user, we only see the BASIC option below, how do we get to see other options as per the previously provided documentation on SAML? (please see screenshot below).

Hi Stephen,

There needs to be a server side backed activation. It can be done on your next upgrade. The environment parameters need to be specified to enable support of additional authentication methods. Support of LDAP authentication is controlled by ‘AUTHENTICATION_LDAP_ENABLED’ parameter, SAML - by ‘AUTHENTICATION_SAML_ENABLED’ parameter. Both of these parameters are set to 'false' by default so additional authentication methods are not available. To enable an authentication the value ‘true’ need to be specified for corresponding parameter in the {PROOF_ROOT}/conf/proof.env file.

E.g following configuration enables both authentication methods:

AUTHENTICATION_LDAP_ENABLED=true
AUTHENTICATION_SAML_ENABLED=true
