Configure Cornerstone

Configure your employee portal to access Cornerstone.

Contact Cornerstone support to request an AES SSO Key (64 characters) and integration vector (32 characters). Only Cornerstone can generate these for you. After you have this information, you can complete the Cornerstone configuration.
  1. On the web server where the portal is installed, navigate to the following directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Keystyle Data Solutions\Keystyle Data Solutions\HRIM\Config.
    Note: If your portal is installed in a different directory, navigate to Keystyle Data Solutions\Keystyle Data Solutions\HRIM\Config in that directory.
  2. Open the Settings.config file with a notepad editor:
    1. Configure all the settings with the prefix CSOD with the credentials found in your Cornerstone settings:

      <add key="CSODAcct" value="YourCornerstoneAccountName"/> (this is the first part of your Cornerstone URL that comes before

      <add key="CSODBaseURL" value=>

      <add key="CSODAESKey" value="64 character length Secure Key granted by Cornerstone Support"/>

      <add key="CSODAESIV" value="32 character length Integration Vector also provided by Cornerstone"/>

      <add key="CSODouID" value="2"/>

      <add key="CSODErrorURL" value=>

      <add key="CSODLogoutURL" value=>

      <add key="CSODTimeoutURL" value=>

      <add key="CSODDestURL" value=""/>

    2. After you add the 64-character AES Key and the 32-character integration vector that Cornerstone provided you, you will see a link under the Employee Tools menu called Knowledgebase.
