Ok enough of the fluff, show me everything I need to know about apps!
The Application Module is where you can assign and create applications to your users. There are several types of applications that can be delivered summarized below.
Access the AppLibrary which is filled with thousands of resources to grab!
Can't find the icon you are looking for? Let us know and we will make a custom one just for you!
ClassLink includes over 5,000 SSOs which means everyone can now click an icon and automatically launch and sign-in to their web and Windows apps from any device.
Available SSO connectors are located in the App Library. Custom SSOs (Autologins) can be requested at no additional cost. Make a request from the App Library>Autologin tab.
When a user first opens an SSO application, for example Evernote, ClassLink prompts the user to input and save the user's Evernote username and password. The credentials are securely stored in the user's password locker, which is located in their ClassLink profile settings. The next time the user clicks Evernote, ClassLink will use the stored credentials and sign-in automatically!
Most SSO apps require a browser extension to be installed. When users click an SSO Browser Extension app, a prompt will appear to install the extension. Below is an example:
Did you know?
Users can update credentials for SSOs by going to their password locker or by right-clicking the SSO app from their ClassLink desktop!
Apps from the global app library sometimes need to be customize for your district - either for a custom URL, custom passthru of credentials, pre-populating users credentials in an SSO template spreadsheet, or even embedding generic credentials in the SSO connector.
Supported SSO value variables
Uploading SSO Templates
First, open the ClassLink Management Console and go into Applications>Assign Apps> search for the app, then click Download FTP Template.
Open the downloaded file and populate it with the user’s AD name, plus his or her credentials for the website. Then save the file.
DO NOT rename the file
The file name is a unique app ID number.
After you’ve saved the file, you’ll want to open an SFTP connection (We recommend using WinSCP, you can find it here https://winscp.net/eng/download.php) with the following hostname and credentials:
Sftp server: sftp.classlink.com
Username: TO BE PROVIDED BY CLASSLINK HELPDESK
Password: TO BE PROVIDED BY CLASSLINK HELPDESK
You’ll want to then copy over the file to the directory on the server (you only have access to a single directory). The left hand side of WinSCP is your local machine. Navigate to where you saved the spreadsheet, then drag it over to the right side.
We update our database hourly with any uploaded files, so anything you upload will not take effect until the next time the update runs.
That’s all there is to it.
