What authentication process does Sage Catalyst use?

Modified on Mon, 14 Aug 2023 at 04:05 PM

Sage Catalyst has personalisation features that allow individual students to interact with resources and download parts of textbooks. We therefore use a more fully featured authentication method than may be traditional for a ‘textbook’ supplier.


Sage Catalyst only supports SAML authentication with your university identity provider SAML supporting systems are: 

  • Shibboleth
  • Open Athens LA
  • Open Athens MD 
  • Ping Federate 
  • Microsoft ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) 
  • Microsoft Azure Active Directory 
  • CAS (Apereo)


If your identity provider is available via EduGAIN, there is a good chance we can work with your Authentication System. If it is not, we will need to exchange some metadata with you.
