Central Authorization Services (CAS)

Overview

VoiceThread supports user authentication using Central Authorization Service (CAS) protocols to allow single-sign-on access. Integration is included in the K-12 District and Higher Education Site licenses, and it can be purchased as an upgrade for other license types. Contact us with any questions or to discuss upgrading.


How to use

Users will navigate to your custom domain (provided by VoiceThread) and sign in using their institutional username and password. No additional registration or username is required.


Technical details and setup

VoiceThread only supports CAS implementations that expose SAML attributes. A member of our Integration Team will work with you to obtain the information we need and build the connecton. The only hard requirement is a unique identifier, but we do recommend including all of the following attributes for the best user experience:

  • Unique identifier (such as eppn)
  • Email address
  • First name
  • Last Name
  • Role (student, teacher, faculty, staff, etc.)

Security

You will need to whitelist the following two IP addresses:

  • 107.21.228.240
  • 23.21.167.135
