On April 25th 2023, a new release of SailPoint IIQ (accessed via myid.reading.ac.uk) will be going live. This release includes several new features as well as performance improvements.
The main changes are highlighted below.
New starters will now be prompted to change password on their first login to a University system (apart from students who set their passwords through RISIS).
Employee extended accounts will now need to be applied for every three months (this is an account management requirement for security credentials ISO27001 and Cyber Essentials). If you know an account is required for longer than three months, consider requesting an External account instead of an extension. Any current employee can request an external account for you.
We have improved acknowledgement emails. When you request a new account or an extension, you will now get an acknowledgement email with information on who needs to approve your request.
We’ve also added a link to RISIS Ask A Question (for student extensions) and an additional course to the Compliance section (for employees and externals).
