Subject: [Toolserver-l] single signon for websites
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
we now have single signon (aka SUL) across the Toolserver
websites (mediawiki, jira, fisheye, confluence).
if you had an account in jira, you now have an SSO account
with your jira username.
if you had an account in mediawiki, you also have an SSO
account with your jira username.
if you have had accounts in both with different names, you
now have two sso accounts.
in either case, you will need to request a new password by
email before you can log in again. this username/password
will work for all the websites.
new accounts can be created at <http://sso.ts.wikimedia.org/account/>.
I'm afraid I seem to have munged things up. I did not previously have an
account on jira, fisheye or confluence, but did have an account on the
toolserver wiki (as well as an account on the toolserver itself which I
understand is not connected with SSO). I went to the toolserver wiki
preferences page and it looks like the password change part is not there any
more (which makes sense I guess, if it's now managed centrally). I logged
out and tried to log back in (there is a new domain dropdown but the only
choice in it is toolserver-sso ) with my password (or what I think it is)
and it was rejected. Possibly I mistyped it or it's not what I think it is.
But now, when I follow the link here
it sends a new password to my email ok. However that password does not work
for logging in to Jira (where I did not formerly have an account) nor does
it work for the toolserver wiki. I did not try that password on confluence
I'm not quite sure how to proceed now. My userid is Lar.
