Firefly: Setting up user authentication

Prerequisites

In order to use Firefly logins, you need to fulfil the following criteria:

  • Your provided Firefly URL can be accessed via port 443 by our servers. We do not allow unencrypted login transactions.
  • Users need to have the "Set a task" ability set on their account in Firefly.
Note: When users log into the Room Booking System (RBS) through Firefly we perform a match between their Firefly username and their RBS username. If you have existing users in RBS and the usernames differ between the two systems we need to assign to those existing RBS users the Firefly format/username.

If there is a common format to the usernames please email support@roombookingsystem.co.uk with the details.

If the usernames do not follow a common format then export the user list (using System Settings >  Export Data > Download Users), amend the usernames in the resulting spreadsheet and send the file to the same address.  

Setup

  1. Log into the Room Booking System and navigate to the System Settings > Authentication > Firefly Single Sign-on page.
  2. Turn on the Firefly SSO Enabled option. You can use this to toggle the authentication method as a whole. When disabled, no users will be able to log in.
  3. You may wish to enable the Automatically Create New Users option. When enabled, new users who have successfully authenticated with Firefly will have an account created for them on the Room Booking System.
  4. Fill in the Firefly URL.
  5. Click Update System Settings to save your changes.
