In order to help streamline the Baker experience, the IT Department is happy to announce the rollout of Phase I our Single Sign-On solution! By logging in to the My Baker portal (my.baker.edu), users will eventually be able to seamlessly launch into any Baker application from one location. In order to use single sign-on, users will need to go to my.baker.edu, click the 'Login' button on the left side of the page, and when redirected to the Baker login page, enter the appropriate authentication credentials. You will then be logged in and ready for action!
During this initial rollout period, only Blackboard will be available for single sign-on. To access Blackboard, once you have clicked the 'Login" button and authenticated in to My Baker, click the Blackboard link in the top left corner of the page. All existing links to Blackboard will still work (bookmarks, links from other Baker websites, etc.); however, it is highly encouraged to make the My Baker portal your go-to spot for logging in, going forward.
Please keep in mind, closing a tab for My Baker or Blackboard WILL NOT log you out of SSO.
Logging out of My Baker or Blackboard will log you out of SSO for the CURRENT application, but will not log you out of the OTHER application.
Once logged out of an application, you will need to login again to SSO for that application.
To be completely logged out of SSO, you must close your web browser. This is especially true if you are using a public computer.
Please keep an eye out for additional announcements in the coming months, as Gmail will be the next application added to our SSO environment.
Please report any issues / errors to the ITSC, or submit a support ticket at help.baker.edu.
