To achieve this, the Propeople Drupal Agency (http://wearepropeople.com)
Propeople migrate to Drupal 7 the SLAC’s old website. The site has been powered by an outdated proprietary CMS system. The migration was performed without changing existing site contents and information architecture. The majority of the effort was focused on usability improvements, workflow improvement and responsive design (http://wearepropeople.com/
Propeople chose to use Aegir as the main provisioning tool. Aegir is an open source Drupal distribution that is designed to install and manage thousands of Drupal sites (http://wearepropeople.com/
One of the requirements from the SLAC security team is that all Drupal accounts should be centrally managed. We decided to use their Active Directory installation to manage access. Every time a site is created within Aegir, it has a unique numeric ID assigned to it. To manage access for the site, we have created Active Directory security groups for each user role.
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory built the world’s longest particle accelerator, discovered some of the fundamental building blocks of matter and created the first website in North America. Today SLAC is one of the largest nationally recognized laboratory with more than 1,600 full time scientists.
