  • I appreciate your effort Vidushi..Being a LMS Consultant, I always have to check my implementation guide /KBA to start with.

    Now, in my cutover activity list, I can paste this blog URL as a reference point.




  • Appreciate your sharing.

    May I ask a question? when I access LMS from BizX, it redirect to the logon page and I need fill in user name and password manually. Do you have implementation guide for SSO from BizX to LMS?

    Thank you in advance.


  • HI Vidushi,

    Congrats for this tutorial.

    I followed it and tried to apply that to my demo instance.

    Accessing the Learning admin from Bizx works. But when trying to access the "My Learning" dashboard for any user, I get the following error:
