Thanks Daniel.

Did you use the installation script ? If so it should have CAS disabled by default.

The file:


should look like:

# Security bypass


# disable all security

Subject: [Ala-portal] How to bypass the authentication process of Collectory component

Hi Guys,

We did the deployment of the main ALA components (Biocache, Hubs-webapp and Collectory) and now we do some tests with local data. However, we don't have access to the administrative features of Collectory component.

We check that the ALA access control is accomplished through the CAS component (Central Authentication Service), and we will install it soon. Now we would like to bypass this authentication in order to test the administrative features without the CAS deployment/configuration.

I noticed that exist some parameters in the collectory configuration files to do this, but in our tests did not work properly.

Can we disable (bypass) the authentication process to use the collectory administrative features without the CAS deployment? How to do this?
