CAS maintenance and testing on August 13

Toy construction workers set across a computer keyboardOn Sunday, August 13, at 8:00 am, IT Services will be performing maintenance and failover testing of the Central Authentication Service (CAS) using remote cloud services. This CAS failover test will be to confirm the functionality of the remote site in the event external services lose internet access to our campus. We expect the test to last approximately one hour.

Authentication through CAS during the failover testing is expected to function normally, however, there is a chance that users will experience a brief period in which they may not be able to login to new services (existing connections will not be affected) or a short delay in accessing services like myMiami and Canvas through CAS.
