We're using Nelnet, but not doing anything with a call into Peoplesoft as you describe.

We send them a nightly batch feed of the student data, and then are using Shib for login, passing the student ID to match up with the feed.

They required IDP-initiated SSO, so we just have that login link posted in Peoplesoft.

Fellow Higher Ed folks,

Today I learned we are engaging They are apparently  an Incommon member, so they do SAML and should understand Shib.

I spent an hour with one of our Peoplesoft system analysts trying to understand what nelnet expected.

And what I learned is that they wanted to make a call (think URL, not Restful/Webservice/SOAP) to one of our Peoplesoft content providers to get student loan/payment/parking/housing payment info. Backchannel. They provide the backend Peoplecode at the endpoint.

Via  a URL protected by our CAS SSO... Which is set up to work with people to enter credentials/MFA, not system accounts or anything web service related.

So I kindly ask for any experiences with this vendor and how I should proceed to make this project successful.

Best Regards,
