Connecting NC State People and Persona

Connecting and configuring Persona to the NC State People plugin isn’t difficult, but it can be tedious for less technically-inclined users.

The Persona website and documentation within the “Persona Sync” section of the NC State People plugin provide thorough information on necessary configuration steps. If you are still uncertain about how to proceed, you may want to contact your web support individual or contact UComm for help.
