Summon Configuration

Summon seems to work fine with a barebones EZproxy configuration, e.g.

T Summon
U http://XXX.summon.serialssolutions.com/
DJ summon.serialssolutions.com

(where XXX is the subdomain of your Summon instance)

Summon 2.0

Summon 2.0 makes use of JSON to pull in the results from the Summon API prior to displaying them in the browser. To make EZproxy rewrite links in the JSON responses, include the MIMEfilter directive, e.g.

T Summon 2.0
U http://XXX.summon.serialssolutions.com/
DJ summon.serialssolutions.com
MimeFilter application/json .* javascript
