Arranging access to the Contributor Dashboard

Access to the Contributor Dashboard is through Shibboleth entitlements. It is up to you to decide which staff at your Institution will have access to the Dashboard. You give someone access by adding an "entitlement" to their account in your Shibboleth Identity Provider (IdP.)

The entitlement you need to add is "" (without the quotes.) You will need to add the entitlement for the Copac Contributor Dashboard, whose entityId is "". See the OpenAthens screen shot below for an example of how it is added to an account in OpenAthens. Other Identity Providers will differ in how entitlements are added to accounts.


If you are using OpenAthens as your Identity Provider you will be able to add an entitlement by clicking on the Attributes tab of the admin interface.
