The Identity Management Portal (IDM) provides users with an easy way to activate their CCR accounts.  Once activated, users can:

  1. Change their passwords
  2. Reset their password if it was forgotten,
  3. See when their password expires and what groups their account is in (account information tab)
  4. Upload their public SSH keys to allow for password-less logins to CCR machines
  5. Enable two-factor authentication for the identity management portal


NOTE:  All other tasks related to your CCR account and access to resources are handled through Coldfront - the CCR subscription management portal.



You must be physically on campus using a UB network or you must be connected to the UB VPN in order to reach this website!

To login, enter your UB username.  



If you do not have two factor authentication turned on, you will be prompted for your password and the answer to the security question you set during account activation.  

Please note this may or may not be the same as your UB password.  The two systems are not tied together.



Forgot the answer to your security question?  You will need to contact CCR Help to reset the question.

Instructions for changing your password in the identity management portal

Existing CCR users were required to re-activate their accounts in July 2015.  If you did not do this and select a security question, you will not be able to reset your password on your own in the account portal.  Please contact CCR Help to assist you in activating your account.




If you have two factor authentication turned on, you will be prompted for your password and the one-time token (OTP) from the app on your smartphone, tablet or computer.  More details about enabling two-factor authentication 

Please note this may or may not be the same as your UB password.  The two systems are not tied together.



Once logged in, users are presented with information about their user account, including the date their password expires, the email address we have on record for the account, and what UNIX groups the account is a member of.  On the left hand side of the window, there are links to change your existing password, upload SSH Public keys, configure two-factor authentication and manage your one-time tokens for two-factor authentication.
