In this release, we're introducing a Single Sign On (SSO) authentication enhancement for Article Galaxy Scholar (AGS) platform and an update to the Article Galaxy Scholar (AGS) Management Interface along with some smaller upgrades.
Article Galaxy Scholar - SSO Integration & User Groups Support
The Article Galaxy Scholar (AGS) platform will be enhanced with Single Sign On (SSO) authentication in addition to the existing authentication method option. Users of our AGS platform will no longer need to authenticate via IP address and the submission of their email address. Additionally, our AGS platform will be able to recognize 'User Group' information (e.g. Faculty, Graduate, Undergraduate, etc.) automatically via SSO and determine if that user has the ability to make a purchase within Article Galaxy Scholar.

Article Galaxy Scholar Management Interface
The Article Galaxy Scholar (AGS) Management Interface has moved from the Article Galaxy 2.0 platform (Gadget Platform) to the existing Client Admin UI. The moving of this interface retains all of the existing functionality of AGS.
