Shibboleth integration

In Shibboleth authentication mode HTTP Commander delegates authentication to Shibboleth Service provider. HTTP Commander does not perform authentication, it expects that all request reaching the application are already authenticated. Web file manager extracts name and groups (if available) of the current user and uses that information to make authorization decisions (for example, what folders to map).

Admin Panel allows you to assign folders to users. Note that list of users and groups is not available, you cannot edit or add users and groups. Logout button does not function.

To install Shibboleth Service Provider, please read manual.
