Thanks to the folks at the UK Federation, who have updated the
information about WAYFless URLs on
http://www.ukfederation.org.uk/content/Services/2006-04-05-sciencedirect
and http://www.ukfederation.org.uk/content/Services/2008-08-15-scopus.
Our own information is in the progress of being updated as well.

However, we did - and still do - advise institutes to prevent problems
like this by dynamically generating WAYFless links by fetching an SP's
Assertion Consumer Service URLs as used in those links directly from the
federation metadata, instead of hard-coding them into the links. This
way, a central metadata update is all that is needed to prevent links
from breaking (that is one of the benefits of centrally hosted
metadata...)

We are currently investigating the (indeed more serious) issue with
personalisation, which seems to be limited to not just Scopus, but also
affects ScienceDirect. It would be extremely helpful if someone has an
institutional test login which they used to "personalize"
ScienceDirect/Scopus before this issue occurred - that would allow us to
reproduce the error and zoom in on the issue in our live production
environment, rather than in our test environment.

If anyone on this list has such a institutional test login and is
willing to work with us in order to help us solve this issue, please
contact me.

Best - Ale

Hello Ale,

Did you see this email from Andy Swiffin of the University of Dundee?

The WAYFless URLs (which are published for some services in the UK 
federation) have just been corrected on the UK federation website for 
Science Direct and SCOPUS, in view of their new SSO endpoints. See:

http://www.ukfederation.org.uk/content/Services/2006-04-05-sciencedirect

and

http://www.ukfederation.org.uk/content/Services/2008-08-15-scopus


Why would user personalisations for SCOPUS have been affected by your 
changes at the weekend? It would be helpful if you could clarify the 
position with an email to [log in to unmask]

Regards,

	John

Hi

I expect there were other people who got caught up with the changes to 
the ACS for both Scopus and ScienceDirect over the last couple of days? 
   We had WAYFless URLs for Scopus which needed adjustment.

More seriously we've found our users personalisation on SCOPUS  has gone

and they've lost their saved searches.   The entityID hasn't changed and

am I correct in saying that changes to the ACS alone shouldn't affect 
this?   Is anyone else seeing this?

Regards
Andy
Dundee
