Service desk closure for Winter break
Posted on Thursday, 8 December 2016
As always, the UK federation service desk takes an extended break over Christmas and New Year. This means that the helpdesk will be unavailable from 11:00 on Friday 23rd December and will re-open at 10:00 on Tuesday 3rd January 2017. If you submit a request to email@example.com during these dates, your email will be logged, but we won't be able to respond until we return in January.
UK federation metadata will be re-published automatically over the holiday period so, whilst we will not make changes to UK federation-registered entities, there may be changes due to entities imported via eduGAIN.

This week we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the UK federation, which has grown from a pilot project between Edinburgh University and Janet to the Service that Jisc provides today, with over a thousand members and reaching users and services in almost 40 countries. On the anniversary it seemed apt to update you on some developments which are occurring with the UK federation.
