ISRS Security Recertification

ISRS Security Recertification runs through December 31, 2014.  All ISRS user security is set to expire on December 31, 2014.  To extend a user’s security for another year, Approval Managers must complete the recertification process.

If the recertification process is NOT completed, all ISRS users for whom security has not been recertified will lose the ISRS functionality granted by that security on January 1, 2015.

More information on ISRS Security Recertification and a training video.

Changes to ISRS Login Coming in 2015

If you’re a user of the ISRS Uniface (Desktop) application, you’re familiar with the “six-by-two” username: The first six characters of your last name followed by the first two characters of your first name. For example, John Johnson’s Uniface username would be “johnsojo.” This username format dates from the earliest implementation of ISRS modules—more than 16 years ago!

In 2015, the six-by-two format will be retired and users of the ISRS Uniface application will, in stages, begin to use their StarID to login to these desktop modules of ISRS. Pilot testing with a small group of users will begin in early 2015, and soon after groups of users will be notified when their ISRS desktop login will be redirected to StarID.

Note: If you currently use your six-by-two login for access to operational data, the Data Warehouse (WARE), or Oracle/REPL, these tools will continue to use the six-by-two username until they too are authenticated via StarID credentials.
