3/24/2017 10:30 AM IMS Upgrade with a brief Service Interruption: 11:00 PM on Fri, March 24th to 5:00 AM on Saturday, March 25th

CUNY is upgrading the identity management system (IMS) that grants users access to CUNYfirst, CUNYsmart and the Virtual Bookstore via their CUNYfirst login credentials (CUNYfirst username and password). This IMS upgrade is required to remain current with CUNY software maintenance and release plans.

The IMS upgrade start and end time are as follows:
Start time: 11 pm on Friday, March 24, 2017
End time: 5 am on Saturday, March 25, 2017

At 11 pm, the cutover to the new IMS version will briefly interrupt access to any active CUNYfirst application. Any unsaved work may be lost during this interruption.

Following the IMS cutover, users may have to log back in to application(s) that were active at the time of cutover.
The Friday night MyInfo, CUNYfirst data transfer and Reporting data refresh will still take place as scheduled during the IMS upgrade.
