Common Logins OJS OCS

Postby ant414 » Thu Jul 17, 2008 6:48 am

I'm new to OJS but it looks fantastic what I have seen so far. Well done everyone involved.

One thing I'd like to ask being new to PHP as well, is if it is possible first to share login details/databases between OJS and OCS. But also with other PHP software - I'm think of shopping cart software (e.g. ZenCart) because I run an academic publishing firm and I'd like customers to be able to login once to access journals, order print journals and order printed books, not login for each different purchase/function.

Hi ant414,

Thanks for the kind words!

OJS ships with an LDAP plugin that can interoperate with an LDAP server to provide single sign-on functionality between applications; I'm not sure whether Zencart includes this functionality as well. Unfortunately, OCS doesn't currently ship with the LDAP plugin, although it's on the horizon hopefully soon (see

OJS 2.2.1 also includes a Shibboleth plugin ( although I have not used it and am not entirely sure how it works. If this is of interest at all, please let us know and one of the developers can describe it more fully.
