How to Require SOU Authentication and Capture Respondent Information to a Qualtrics Survey

In some cases, you may want to verify that the respondents are SOU faculty, staff, or students and track who has responded to a survey. To enable this for a Qualtrics survey, follow the steps below:

  1. On the Edit Survey tab, click the Survey Flow link at the top of the page
  2. ON the Survey Flow page, click the +Add a New Element Here link
  3. From the list of options available, click the Authenticator button
  4. In the Authentication Type field, select SSO
  5. If you want to create a reusable panel of respondents, leave the checkmark in the box labeled "Associate Respondent With Panel" and select a library to store the panel.  If you do not need a panel created, uncheck this box.
  6. Check the box labeled "Capture Respondent Identifying Info" and then click the "Add Embedded Data..." when the link appears
  7. Add the attribute(s) you want to capture in the "Embedded Data To Set" field, and the object identifier in the "Field from SSO" field.  The attributes available are:

    Embedded Data to Set:    Field From SSO:
    Username urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.5923.1.1.1.6
    First Name urn:oid:2.5.4.42
    Last Name urn:oid:2.5.4.4
    Email urn:oid:0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.3
    Affiliation (e.g. faculty, staff, student)  urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.5923.1.1.1.5

    As an example, if you want to capture the email address of a respondent, you would put "Email" in the EmbeddedData to Set field and the corresponding object identifier.

  8. From the SSO Type, select Shibboleth
  9. Click Move (under the blue authentication box) and drag the blue box up to the top of the survey flow (this should be the first item in your survey flow)
  10. Click the Save Flow button at the bottom of the screen

The finished Survey Flow should look like the example below:
