High Level Functional flow

Detailed functional flow

In the following diagram, light blue represents the merchant web shop, grey blue is InAcademia functionality. 

The figure presents the 'happy' flow, ending in a successful validation, as displayed in green, as well the possible error scenarios represented in red or orange. The error situation where a institutional IdP, or the merchant redirect URL component cannot be reached because of network issues or similar are out of scope and control for InAcademia and will always yield an error in the users browser. The InAcademia service is part of a continuing development programme and additional features planned for the future are also captured below.
