Proxy server plug-in for Folio?

Our current LMS (Sierra) has the WAM proxy built into it. If we move to Folio, will we need to buy a separate standalone proxy (EZproxy or the like?) How easy will it be to connect to Folio? We are likely to keep on using a proxy server for as long as possible, since some suppliers haven’t yet moved to Shibboleth or their Shibboleth connection is unreliable.

Hi Rachel,

From the ERM side we’ve not had any discussion about creating a built-in proxy server for Folio - our assumption has been that this functionality would live elsewhere - probably outside Folio. We have just created a feature to ensure that appropriate proxy prefix/suffix can be added to any URLs stored in the Agreements app KB - but this is, again, with a focus on supporting external proxy servers.
