What: Google umich domain authentication
When: January 12, 2012
Why: to implement Single Sign On services (SSO)
Who: All users currently provisioned in the Google umich domain
Action: No action required from unit IT. See below for additional end user instructions.

*************************************

Users currently provisioned in the Google umich domain will see their authentication switch from Google's authentication system to the university's weblogin system on January 12. Users currently include U-M’s pre-pilot users and former Team Edition accounts. Authentication for users with consumer @umich.edu accounts will not be affected.

After provisioned users attempt to authenticate from google.com, the password page will say "continue" instead of “sign-in.” Users will click "continue" and be redirected to weblogin.umich.edu for authentication. Alternatively, users can access Google services directly by adding "/a/umich.edu" to the end of the service URL. For example: docs.google.com/a/umich.edu.
