— Changes to Login Screen – Dec. 19, 20

Beginning Dec. 19, you will have a slightly different experience logging in to NWACC systems!

Over the past several weeks, ITS has been working with our vendor to upgrade our “Identity Provider” (IdP) to the latest version. In case you are wondering what on Earth this is, the IdP is the technology that provides Single-Sign-On for numerous applications and services, so you only have to enter your username and password into one system. This upgrade modernizes the technology, greatly improves the security architecture and provides better fault tolerance and scalability. As we transition to the new system on Dec. 19, you may notice a couple of things:

  1. While the page will look the same, the login URL will change (notice the “idp.quicklaunchsso.com” in the screenshot below).

2. During the transition, you may have to authenticate twice when you launch applications through myNWACC. This should be limited to the period between Dec. 19 and Dec. 20.

All applications that worked with Single-Sign-On should work exactly as they are functioning now.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at jdegn@nwacc.edu.

Thanks,
