Here is the list of all organizations who have already integrated edu-ID.

Important notice

The changeover to edu-ID is a critical moment. In order to ensure a high quality of the process the following guidelines apply:

  1. Integrating the edu-ID at a university requires thorough planning and preparation. SWITCH should be contacted at least 6 months before the changeover to edu-ID.
  2. Adoption dates have to be mutually confirmed by SWITCH and the adopting organization. The confirmation for a time slot depend on the availablity of SWITCH staff. As a rule of thumb, SWITCH can migrate no more than one university per month.
  3. In order to allow sufficient time for preparations, the following work must be completed one month before the changeover:
    • Development of the linking service at the university
    • Successful test of the linking service
    • Development of attribute synchronization (push or pull)
    • Successful test of attribute synchronization (all attributes required for AAI/edu-ID are synchronized correctly)
    • Successful testing of critical SPs (via edu-ID Staging IdP)
