    Administration and Infrastructure - August 2016 Enhancements

    Sandbox Management

    You can view the status and history of your sandboxes, and the sandboxes of the institutions for which your institution is the contract lead, on the new Sandbox Management page. You can also add a widget with links to your sandboxes to the Alma home page. The privilege MANAGE_SUPPORT_AND_MAINTENANCE was added to the General System Administrator role for this feature.
    For more information, see Sandbox Management.​

    Alma Social Login

    Staff may now use Facebook or Google to log in to their Alma accounts. The social login information is defined in an integration profile. On the User Details page, user types were removed and the password is now an optional field, to allow for the social network sign-in. For more information, see Adding Users.
    An invitation to log in using a social network can be emailed to staff users from the Manage Users interface (see Send Social Login Invitation Letter) for an individual user, or can be sent in bulk using the Update/Notify Users job.
