Home Base Integrated with the NCEdCloud IAM Service July 6,2015
The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) is pleased to announce the successful integration of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) Service with the Home Base suite of applications. This system provides single sign-on to PowerSchool, SchoolNet, OpenClass, NCEES, and Canvas (for those LEAs and Charter Schools who have adopted and integrated Canvas with the IAM Service).
When students, teachers, and staff access any of the above mentioned applications with their NCEdCloud IAM Service accounts, their username and password are remembered by the service. When subsequently launching any of the other applications, the IAM Service takes the user directly into the other applications without having to login again. Login once, access all applications.
Users will now need to use their new IAM Service Accounts to login to Home Base (see: Claim My Account). To login to the IAM Service go to https://my.ncedcloud.org and enter your username (UID#) and password.
Identity and Access Management (IAM) is one of the NCEdCloud initiatives for the K-12 community of North Carolina. The IAM Service provides LEAs and Charter Schools a tool to help manage the authentication and authorization needs of their students, employees, and guests (and eventually parents) in accessing cloud-based resources. It provides self-service capabilities to all end users and delegated administrator capabilities to LEA and Charter School technology leadership. The actual service is being provided by Identity Automation and the IAM infrastructure is hosted in Amazon's AWS environment. This service provides unlimited scaling as well as a world class high availability platform.
