As was communicated recently, changes will shortly be made to the UP Portal sign-on process.
Reminder of Portal password change
If an alert is displayed advising the user that their portal password has not been updated within the mandated period, the user can elect to either:
However, if the user elects to postpone the updating of the password they will be reminded thereof on every subsequent sign-on to the UP Portal, until their password is eventually changed.
To avoid these constant reminders, users are advised to use the “Change password” link, displayed on the UP Portal login page, to change their UP Portal password as soon as they are informed during the UP Portal sign-on process that it is time to do so.
Accessing a PeopleSoft enterprise system from the UP Portal with automatic user sign-on
In the near future, users who have rights to access the PeopleSoft HCM (Human Capital Management) and/or PeopleSoft Financials and/or PeopleSoft CRM (Customer Relationship Management) suites, will be automatically signed in to these systems from the Portal provided:
If any one of these conditions is invalid, then the user will have to re-enter their user credentials (i.e. username and password) to log in to the PeopleSoft systems.
Hint: To prevent the Portal session from expiring after 20 minutes whilst the user may be using a different system to which he/she navigated from the Portal, it is recommended that the user from time to time returns to the browser window that contains the UP Portal display and presses “F5” to refresh it. In this way, the Portal session is kept active and will not expire.
