Weblogin: New function and eduGAIN from 24. June 2019


More transparency and using international services

The Weblogin of the University of Vienna enables university members to use different web applications (e.g. u:search, University wiki) in one browser session without having to log on to every single application.

On 24. June 2019 the appearance of the Weblogin form changes. From this day, users will see a new overview page (after entering their u:account UserID and password) containing the personal details that will be passed on to the desired web application (see screenshot). These are usually first and last name, UserID, e-mail address and type of role within the University of Vienna.

As a result, this process will be more transparent and understandable for users.

eduGAIN: Using international services

From 24. June 2019 university members can use web applications offered within the eduGAIN network via Weblogin. With their u:account details of the University of Vienna, users can use the services and applications of international scientific institutions.

These are, for example, the software Sketch Engine used for text analysis, or the research infrastructure CLARIN for archiving and processing of language-related resources.
