SSO Login Update
We are pleased to announce that MiDataHub has completed a major improvement to the single sign-on functionality. Upon signing into the MiDataHub Launchpad to access tools like MICIP, MiRead, and the MiDataHub cockpit a user is presented with a long list of districts that can be quickly navigated by either typing your district name in the search box or scrolling to the district. There are times when a group of districts are able to log in under a single SSO entry, in some cases would be the ISD, or support provider providing the SSO. 

An example of this would be if a district is SSO federated through their ISD. That ISD might manage multiple district federations. In the past, a district under this example would not see their district in the list of districts but instead would need to select that ISD to login. With a recent update, we simply appended the SSO Provider to the back of the district's name (separated by parentheses). Since this update, your district will show up in the list to select and log in to access MiLaunchPad for your applications.
There are two ways to access the MiDataHub Login (and the option to select your district):
  1. Navigate to https://launchpad.midatahub.org/
  2. Navigate to www.midatahub.org and select the "Login" button
MICIP: How to Authorize a District Data Liaison
One of the steps that districts have been requested to complete during the integration with the MICIP system is to add a MICIP Data Liaison. A MICIP Data Liaison is the primary contact that will be used for communications regarding data quality for the MICIP system. 

To configure this role you will need to have authorization access in the MiDataHub Cockpit as a Technical Contact. If you are not sure who this individual is in your district please email support@midatahub.org and the support team will be able to assist you with identifying who this individual is. The technical contact will need to login to the Michigan Data Hub Cockpit, and create a new authorization or add the MICIP Data Liaison access to an existing person. 

The steps to complete the authorization for a new user (not currently in the MiDataHub cockpit) are below:
  1. Login to the Michigan Data Hub Cockpit (as a Technical Contact).
  2. Select the “New Authorizations” button under the Manage Authorizations heading.
  3. Enter the full name, and email address of the individual you are assigning this role to. 
  4. Check the checkbox for the MICIP Data Liaison role, and click save.

If you are adding the MICIP Data Liaison authorization to an existing user in the MiDataHub cockpit, simply click the "edit" button for that user, and select the MICIP Data Liaison checkbox, and click the "save" button.
The MICIP team provides continuous communication on their website, along with newsletters published every other week.
