Authentication to the Compilatio service is done through identity federation EduGAIN via the Shibboleth software brick.
The EduGAIN federation brings together information from several identity federations including RENATER, a French identity federation.
Institutions cannot join the EduGAIN federation directly. They must be part of a national federation.
Some national federations include their entities in EduGAIN by default, others no.

List of possible membership values to access the Compilatio service:
These values were selected based on usage statistics of some of the most used faculty, staff and doctoral students.
Access is not available for students, so values such as 'member' which may define a teacher at some institutions and students at others are not allowed.
Customized configuration on request
If your configuration does not include eduPersonPrimaryAffiliation or eduPersonAffiliation attributes, you can tell Compilatio the name of the attribute you want to apply your access filter to.
