How do I get an OTP (One Time Password) token?
You will need an OTP (One Time Password) token to access certain secure data at Indiana University; see What is OTP (One Time Password), and how does it work?
To get an OTP token, contact your departmental OTP coordinator (this is often your departmental fiscal officer). If you do not have a coordinator, contact your departmental LSP. If you do not know your OTP coordinator or LSP, or are not sure if you have one, contact the Support Center for assistance. You will need to know your "chart/org" information to provide the Support Center consultant; see the "Pay advice" section of How can IU employees view and modify personal information (such as contact information, pay advice, W-2, and benefits)?
Your department may need to purchase an OTP token for you if no spares are available for immediate assignment. OTP Coordinators can place orders for new tokens using Kuali Enterprise Workflow in Onestart (see At IU, what is Kuali Enterprise Workflow?). Once the order is fiscally approved, orders are filled by the UITS Support Center ACES (Accounts and Critical Enterprise Systems) team and usually processed within a few business days. Individuals cannot personally purchase an OTP token; sales are charged to departmental accounts. The cost of a new token is $25.
OTP tokens are the property of the issuing department; thus, if you change departments, the token stays with the department you are leaving, and you obtain a new token in the new department.
Once you have obtained your OTP token, you will need to register and activate it before it will work. Registration and activation are done via an online self-service tool, available at:https://access.iu.edu/
For more information, see At IU, how do I activate my OTP token or change my PIN? For further assistance,
contact your departmental LSP, OTP coordinator, or your campus Support Center, or email
