Re: AMS Password Policy Change and AMS Outage August 22

Dear Administrative Management System users,

In an effort to implement best practices and increase security, Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration is implementing a new password policy in AMS. While this update will occur on Saturday, August 22, it will take effect when you are prompted for your regularly scheduled password change (as you are aware, this normally this happens every 90 days). You will be provided with easy-to-follow instructions for your new password within SAP, which include the following:

  • Minimum Password Length: 8
  • On password change – at least one char to differentiate between old and new passwords
  • At least one digit
  • At least one letter
  • At least one special character
  • At least one lower-case character
  • At least one upper-case character
  • 5 records to be stored in the password history

    Please note, that your UTORid will remain unaffected.

In order to implement this policy, the following Administrative Management Systems will not be available on Saturday, August 22 from 7 am to 12 pm: 

  • AMS
  • Employee Self-Service & Manager Self-Service (ESS/MSS)
  • Expense Reimbursement Direct Deposit (ERDD)
  • My Research
  • My Research On Line
  • Capital Project Portal and Invoice Workflow

Sincerely,
Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration (EASI)
