Requirements to access OneStart
For full access to OneStart, you need a valid Indiana University Network ID username and passphrase. After you get your IU Network ID, you need to wait approximately one hour before you can log into OneStart. If after an hour you still cannot log in, contact your local Support Center.
Note: If, when you attempt to log into OneStart, you receive an error message that mentions missing account information in the Translate or Directory service, inform the Support Center consultant about this specific message.
Guest access to OneStart
If you do not have an IU Network ID, you can access OneStart with a
Guest account; see About IU Guest accounts. When using a Guest
account to access OneStart, you will need to log in using your full
Guest account email address (e.g.,
How to log into OneStart
From OneStart, you can browse
the public view of the portal to get a glimpse of the services and
features available in OneStart. To log into OneStart, click
OTP token login if you require access to applications
and services protected by strong authentication. To authenticate via
OTP, you must have an OTP token; do not select this option if you do
not have one. See What is OTP (One Time Password), and how does it work?
Note: If you add OneStart to your bookmarks, remember that the OneStart URL does not begin with "www".
Logging in multiple times
Not all services published in OneStart have been converted to authenticate with the Central Authentication Service (CAS). Therefore, these services, including IU Webmail and Outlook Web App (OWA), require separate authentication within OneStart.
Conversion to CAS is a high priority for UITS, and UITS encourages all other service owners with authentication requirements to use CAS. Eventually, most or all OneStart services will use CAS, allowing access to all services with only one login.
If you experience difficulty logging into OneStart, check the following:
- Make sure you are using a supported browser; see About OneStart and web browsers.
- Make sure you are using your IU Network ID username and passphrase
and that you have entered both correctly. Your username and passphrase
are case sensitive, which means that you must use the correct
uppercase or lowercase characters.
- If you have reset your passphrase using the Passphrase
Maintenance utility within the past few weeks but still cannot
log into OneStart, visit your campus Support Center to request a passphrase reset using the Super Passphrase
- If you have a sponsored account and cannot log into OneStart, the
PeopleSoft system may not yet have identified you as an
affiliate. This may take one full business day after your sponsor
submits the request for your account.
If you continue to have problems with your sponsored account, ask your sponsor to contact the UITS Support Center.
