Many of our clients wish to limit access to Blackbaud Award Management and Stewardship Management to a designated population of their applicants and students. We generally recommend setting up an integration with your campus LDAP/Active Directory, SAML, or Shibboleth authentication system to accomplish this. These systems are designed to control access to campus resources and to enforce IT policies with respect to account management and password recovery. However, there are some campuses that currently do not have these technologies available to them. When this is the case, Blackbaud has an alternative authentication process called Whitelist, which allows you to control which applicants have access to Blackbaud Award Management without having to integrate with a campus authentication system.
To determine if Whitelist Authentication is right for you and to provide responses needed to complete setup, read through the document provided.
