Available Services

The Shibboleth-protected resources listed below are directly available, although in most cases an end user's organisation must have a licence to use a particular resource. Clicking on the service name will take you to the resource's login page, while "Provider" links to the service provider's website, and clicking on "info" in the "Link" column takes you to further information about the service, including (where available) the attributes used by the service.

There is also a page, WAYFless Services, that lists the same information as the table below for all Service Providers who have now, or who are about to have, access through WAYFless URLs set up.

Organisations may also find it useful to visit the attribute usage section of the federation website. Here you will find examples of how attributes are used in practice within the federation, along with a table outlining the attributes recognised by a sample of the federation member services.

There is also an RSS feed: New services.
