Scripting Help..Card Swipe Logon

Question asked by Mark Elmore on Mar 12, 2015

Ok..so I am trying to setup a single sign on type thing using user card swipes. I have two scripts that are the provided Pharos scripts which I have modified. The first script, CardSwipe Logon, does exactly what it should do. However the problem comes in with the Billing script. We use CSGold, and the billing script is pointing to the billplug.exe; however, it is not taking the raw card data and passing it. Up front, I am not a programmer so getting it this far is pretty amazing for me. I am well aware that I may have missed something or otherwise left something out. Ideally I would like to not have to use a billing script to parse this if there is a way to get the logon script to pass the raw card data along. I have attached the scripts for review. Any help would be most appreciated.

 

Some background on our setup:

Our university uses IDs in the following format; (aaaXXXXXXXXX)

Our users in Pharos are in the following format:

     Logon ID: aaaXXXXXXXXX

     First Name:

     Last Name:

     Alias: aaaXXXXXXXXX

     Role: User

     Active: Yes

     Card ID:

The CardSwipe Logon script is checking for accounts based on the Logon ID field after some processing of the raw card data (;XXXXXXXXX=XXXX?). <--- That part works fine.
