Portal Logins
How-To Guide
Overview
Portal links are Gaggle’s single-sign-on solution to other services or systems that the
district has for its’ users. These links appear in the Jump To Menu under the "Portal
Links" submenu. These links can take users to a specific URL or automatically log users
in to other web sites such as Discovery Education, Google Apps or even SharePoint.
Portal Links can use a single username & password for all users or can be configured
with individualized usernames and passwords.
Portal Links can only be created by users who have School Administrator access level or
higher. The links can be configured to appear just for a specific school, for specific
access levels or even for just specific users.
The portal links make Gaggle a very convenient starting point for all of the web services
that students and teachers may want to use. Students can start their day by logging into
Gaggle and quickly going to the web site needed for the days activities. There is no need
to remember multiple usernames and passwords as these are all managed by Gaggle
There is no limit to the number of links that you can add to Gaggle. This is a great way
to save classroom time and increase your Gaggle account usage.
Portal Link Attributes
Link Type - "System" link uses the same parameters for all users, whereas "User
Specific Params" uses specific parameter values uploaded for each user
Link Scope - the particular school for which users will see the link. District Admins and
above will see a district option to have the link show up for all users in a district.
Min Access Level – the lowest user access level who will see this link when they log in.
Max Access Level – the highest user access level who will see this link when they log in.
Link Enabled- whether a link is visible to end users. When a link is first created it is by
default disabled, allowing for the upload of user information if needed
Link Display Name - name seen by end user to click on
Base URL - The base URL of the system to integrate with. Information will be posted to
this information in a new page when the user clicks on a link
User Identifier - If the link type is user specific, a cvs file is used to upload parameters.
The user identifier value indicates how a user is to be linked to the parameters being
uploaded in the cvs file. The possible values are: "Gaggle User ID", "Gaggle Username",
"Custom ID". The CustomID is generally your district’s staff/student ID number.
Param Values- Six parameter values are allowed. The names and values are specified if
the link is a System Link (Same for all users). If the link is a User Specific Link, then
only the parameter name is specific and then the values will come for an uploaded file.
Uploading User Parameters
User parameters are uploaded through a simple comma separate file. If there are less than
six parameters, just supply the number needed. The file is in the format:
userIdentifier,param1,param2,param3,param4,param5,param6
The userIdentifier is either a Gaggle user ID, Gaggle username, customID, as specified in
the "User Identifier" menu option. In the following example, assume there are three
parameters defined such as: "myUser", "myPass" and "lang" and we want to upload a
value for a user with Gaggle ID = 21399045.
Example:
21399045, bob, password, en
Parameters from Gaggle’s Stored Data
Data for parameters can be pulled from Gaggle’s internal database such as Gaggle
username, Gaggle User ID, Last Name, Custom ID etc.
Parameters surrounded with greater than and less than signs, "<<param>>", are pulled
from the Gaggle database for the given user at the time the link is accessed. If a dynamic
parameter is specified for a System link the current user's data will be used. Only
primitive fields accessible directly through the User object are exposed in this way.
Availabel User Data fields are:
<<userId>>
<<userName>>
<<firstName>>
<<lastName>>
<<middleName>>
<<fullName>>
<<accessLevel>>
<<customId>>
<<adminUserId>>
<<humanMonitorId>>
<<forwardTo>>
<<outsideEmail>>
<<note>>
<<parent>>
<<child>>
<<shardId>>
Notes on Security
The basic portal link security is not completely impenetrable. Parameter information is
hidden from the end user but is still accessible to a very tech savvy user. The assumption
being made is that that legitimate logged in Gaggle users won't be trying to extract
information from their own integrated systems and in general they probably already have
access to the information. Gaggle is just providing a utility to quickly access it.
Parameters are loaded into the portal page encrypted. A second AJAX call is made when
the page loads to retrieve a key to decrypt the form values and post them to the portal's
URL. In this way actual passwords are not sitting in plain text in the page/cache and
returns to that URL will require the user to be logged in to Gaggle (as the correct user)
for the decryption to take place.
The parameters are not sent in clear text over the wire, just the key to decrypt them (only
good for one call), but the values are eventually posted in the browser. Thus the
parameters would only be accessible to a determined person legitimately using Gaggle to
hack their own school's information. In the case of a User Specific Link this determined
hacker could only access individual data if they had already broken into the target user’s
Gaggle account.
Determining the Base URL and Parameters
Below you will find approximately 30 common base URL and parameter sets for
common tools such as Discovery Education, NetTrekker and more. If you do not see
your tool below you can follow these steps to determine what items you’ll need to enter
into Gaggle.
The following steps will allow you to determine the base UR: and necessary parameters
for a new site that is to be integrated via the Gaggle Portal Logins.
1. Download and install the FireFox Add On “Tamper Data. Can be found at:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search?q=tamper+data
2. Restart FireFox
3. Go to the URL where you wish to log in.
4. From the FireFox tools menu select “Tamper Data.”
5. Click the “Clear” button at the top of the Tamper Data screen.
6. Return to the login page for the new portal site.
7. Log into the new site
8. Go back to the Tamper Data screen
9. Right Click on the first row of the data and choose “Details.” (You may need to
highlight the row first)
10. The displayed value is the base URL needed above.
11. Look in the lower left pane of the same tamper Data screen.
12. Right Click on the bottom item labeled “POSTDATA” and choose “Details.”
(You may need to highlight the item first)
13. The new screen will show the parameters and values needed above. (Clicking
the decode radio button will help.)
14. Some of the parameters may not be needed.
15. To decrypt the html character codes use this site:

Example Values for Common Systems
(Please note the example parameters are place-holders. You’ll need to enter your account
information in the fields such as username and password)
