Configure CAS (Drupal 8)

Drupal Version

The following settings should be adequate for most Georgia Tech developers using Drupal version 8.

The CAS configuration page can be found at: http://yoursite/admin/config/people/cas

CAS Server

  • Version — 2.0
  • Hostname — login.gatech.edu
  • Port — 443
  • URI — /cas
  • SSL Verification — Verify using your web server's default certificate authority (CA) chain.

All other sections are optional, but you may want to configure the FORCED LOGIN section, should you want to have a path like /user try to log the user into CAS.  If you don't set up something common like /user to log users in, you'll have to post a login link, either through the Login Link Enabled option (under GENERAL SETTINGS), or by manually posting a link to the path /caslogin somewhere on your front page.

NOTE: This is a different login path from what CAS used in Drupal 6 and 7, which was /cas .  Of course, you could alias /cas to point to /caslogin if you wish to maintain that URL as a login path.
