Hi all,

The Middleware Infrastructure Group (aka the ISIS team) would like to invite you to preview the new IAMUCLA (Identity & Access Management @ UCLA) support web site.

IAMUCLA is the new name for the suite of identity management related projects and services, including ISIS, Enterprise Directory, and Shibboleth.

Among other things, you'll find materials on the site to help you migrate from ISIS to Shibboleth. If you have specific questions about the migration, please contact Xiaoling Zhang at

This site is open for public preview. Please help us improve its content by sending us feedback after visiting it.

Middleware Infrastructure is moving!

The middleware infrastructure wiki is moving to a new server., the current MI wiki is being retired to test status to make way for a new, beefier wiki server! The new server will have a public hostname of Among the changes, the new server now houses its database on the new SQL server cluster. There has also been minor path adjustments in Apache/Tomcat set up to hopefully address a nagging bug we've been having with integrating Shibboleth with Confluence.

The new server is under final prep. The move is expected to happen sometime in mid February.
