## Support / Mahara 15.04 and CAS plugin

Hi

We planned to upgrade our Mahara from 1.9 to 15.04 next week. But we stopped our upgrade process since we discovered that the CAS plugin doesn't work with 15.04.

Who is using the CAS plugin ? How did / will you manage your MAHARA upgrade to 15.04 with the CAS authentification ?

Thanks

Best regards,

Emilie

Hi Emilie,

I had to get CAS working in 15.04 for a client. The problem is due to how the session is handled in Mahara 15.04 (it is slightly different to before).

So I had to adjust all the $_SESSION calls to$SESSION

Cheers

Robert

Hi Robert

Thanks a lot for your feedback !! :-)

Could you publish your plugin version for 15.04 on the plugin page ? i am sure other institutions will appreciate to have it available for download .

As you use this CAS plugin for your clients, will you also maintain it for future releases ?

The CAS authentification is key for our Mahara instance. Do you think we could ask Catalyst to have it included in Mahara core ?

Cheers

Emilie

Hello Emilie,

Robert suggested his changes to Patrick so they can be incorporated into the actual plugin. For the meantime, they can be found in his repository. See https://wiki.mahara.org/wiki/Plugins for the links to both plugins. We are not planning on taking over the plugin maintenance, but prefer to push changes to the actual plugin so that things don't get confusing (I still remember the different versions we had for the assignmen submission plugin which got pretty tricky ;-) ).

Cheers

Kristina

Hello Emilie,

We haven't tried it on 16.04 yet, but it does work on 15.10. I believe there weren't that many differences.

Cheers
