Why would I need to migrate my account?

Instruct has now moved to using single sign-on technology to power it's login. As part of this, we now store our user accounts in a different place, and even more securely. Migrating your account moves it from the old system and into the new system. Why have we done this? You will be able to connect federated accounts to your Instruct account. Federated accounts usually refers to your home institute account, for instance your university account, or an Umbrella account. In future we will to use these federated identities to automate synchronisation of data between Instruct and facilities.
