With an expanding landscape of devices and technologies that access university data, Cal Poly has adopted a service based approach to deliver personalized content. In migrating from uPortal 3 to 4 many custom channels were re-written and DAOs were replaced with service layers. This enabled our native mobile application through OAuth2 authenticated REST services to deliver a range of public and personal data to students, faculty and staff.
With service layers in place mobile applications have a secure methods to acquire data. By leveraging student developers, Cal Poly has built native applications on Android and iOS to optimize performance for a better user experience. Mobile devices that use OAuth2 eliminate the need for storing passwords on the device. OAuth2 also puts the user in control of which devices have access and have the ability to revoke access as needed.
