What is weblogin?

The University of Toronto weblogin service (UTORweblogin) provides a single place for you to identify yourself to web services within the University.

This is commonly called a "single sign-on" (SSO) system. Once you log in to weblogin.utoronto.ca, you can access services like the Portal and webmail as well as other weblogin-enabled web services.

A single point of login simplifies access to protected services. Users can log in once with a single JOINid/UTORid and password and have access to many services. Service providers can authenticate users without having to maintain their own password systems.

Need a UTORid?

The UTORid identifies a user to many services on campus: e.g. UTmail+ email service, the Portal, the campus wireless network (UTORcwn) and many services offered by departments.

A single user identifier and password simplifies access to protected services. Users need remember only one password and service providers are freed from maintaining a password management system.

 

Student UTORids are assigned during the process of registration. You should visit your local campus TCard office where you will be given your TCard with your UTORid on it, and a letter explaining how to activate your UTORid.

If you are a staff or faculty member of one of the federated colleges you will have to visit the business officer in your college to obtain your UTORid.

UTORids are managed under UTORauth, the University's authentication and authorization database. Notably, the UTORauth web site has details on getting a UTORid.

Login Problems

weblogin reports "Authentication failed". Why?

It may be that you entered your UTORid and password incorrectly. But it is possible that your password is not yet known to the weblogin system. If you can, for example, log in to the UTORid management pages or to our mail servers, but cannot log in here, then it is possible that your password has not yet been transferred to the newer authentication service used by weblogin. If this is the case, the problem will be fixed if you can visit the UTORid Password Verification Page.
