A new, unified login method is coming
The new login method uses the long format of the university username and the MFA authentication too. The long ID consists of your own username for students like this: email@example.com and for the staff like this: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Web-based services are moving to new authentication gradually
The new login method will be enabled on 1st June for Microsoft's web-based services (O365/M365, Azure). Thanks to SSO (Single Sign-on), you do not need to sign in these services if you are using a university workstation. However, login is required when accessing the services in the browser's InPrivate/Incognito window or using another device.
The services where the so-called Shibboleth login is used, will also be redirected to use the new login method. This modification work will begin on 16th May for the systems which do not use the Haka user identification system (among others, Zoom, Yuja, FileSender, Google Workspace for Education). The goal is to have these services covered by Azure authentication by the end of June.
- You may check in this instruction Student user account and email address (UO) (oulu.fi) how the current Shibboleth login window and the new Azure login window look like.
- Haka is an identity federation service, where you first choose your own university and then sign in with the organization's account (more information on CSC’s page: Haka-käyttäjätunnistusjärjestelmä - CSC Company Site).
Some services use both Shibboleth and Haka. They will be redirected to use Azure authentication later in the autumn. The exception is EXAM, whose login remains unchanged.
