WAYF has admitted three new institutions in Q4 of 2016:

Consequently, staff and students there now have the technical ability to access WAYF-enabled web services using their institutional logins.

WAYF office relocated to Lyngby

At the end of September, 2016, the WAYF Secretariat was relocated from the IT University of Copenhagen to the Technical University of Denmark ('DTU') in Lyngby. Here, the WAYF staff has joined that of most other DeIC services, located in Building 305 at DTU.

New WAYF metadata launched today

WAYF today has put its new metadata into operation and published them for consumption by connected services and institutions, at https://metadata.wayf.dk/wayf-metadata.xml. Follow the news on WAYF's May, 2016 metadata update here (as RSS here).

WAYF postpones the publishing and putting into operation of new metadata, originally scheduled to happen today. We expect to be ready on Wednesday, May 11 instead. All service and identity providers will receive a notification e-mail as soon as the new WAYF metadata are available.

WAYF to replace metadata in May, 2016

WAYF will replace its current metadata during May 9 through May 30, 2016.  Services and institutions connected to WAYF must install WAYF's new metadata during this period, to be able to maintain a working WAYF connection following that period. All relevant information will be published here.

Cph Uni to change eduPersonPrincipalNames on March 1, 2016

On March 1, 2016 at 10 o'clock, all users at the University of Copenhagen ('KU') will receive new values for their eduPersonPrincipalName ('ePPN') and eduPersonTargetedID ('ePTID') attributes.

Web services identifying their users by ePPN or by ePTID from WAYF will thus be unable to recognise KU users following that time.

If being able to recognise existing KU users by ePPN is business critical to a service provider, WAYF, cooperating with KU, offers to exchange all KU ePPN values currently known to the service into the corresponding new ones.  Service providers interested in this must contact Mikkel Hald of the WAYF Secretariat to make an arrangement.

Regrettably, it is not possible to have current ePTID values originating from KU changed into corresponding new ones.

Service providers affected by KU's change of ePPN, ePTID values can contact Mikkel Hald of the WAYF Secretariat if they have any questions on the matter.
