MFA Maintenance Scheduled September 1, 2018, 4:00am to 4:07am

Duo our Multi-factor Authentication Provider (MFA) will be upgrading the capacity of their main database, which will cause a service outage. 

On Saturday, September 1 from 4:00 a.m. to 4:07 a.m., Duo, our Multi-factor Authentication Provider (MFA), will be upgrading the capacity of their main database, which will cause a service outage. 

During the Duo maintenance, UCLA Logon ID account holders with MFA enabled will not be able to sign into UCLA Single Sign On (SSO) applications. However, if a user has an existing session with UCLA SSO, there should be no impact. 

MFA has been restored 8/20/18

MFA has been re-enabled on all servers.

MFA has been re-enabled on all servers. (August 20, 2018, 12:08 p.m.)

 

On August 20, 2018 from 8:10 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., users who had MFA enabled were unable to sign into UCLA SSO. This is because DUO, our MFA vendor, is currently experiencing an outage to their service.

As a temporary measure, the IAMUCLA team has disabled MFA for all users until Duo has restored service.
