Information Security is preparing a necessary upgrade to weblogin idpz (production weblogin service) in early 2021. We have done the early pilot testing of the new IdP software in December 2020 and the result is very positive. Our next step is a broader user acceptance testing in the community between Jan 5th and Feb 19th. This is a necessary step before we make the upgrade in the production. 

User Acceptance Testing Instructions: 

Prerequisite to Participate: participants need to be added to a private VPN grouper group.  If you are not a Shibboleth SP administrator, please send an email with subject “Shibboleth IdP Upgrade UAT” to shib.admin@utoronto.ca. Make sure you include your UTORid in the email. It is necessary for us to enroll you to the UAT environment (Note: Shibboleth Service Provider (SP) administrators have been added to the group and already fulfill this requirement. )
