STARS is now accessed through MyAccess@APS, see below for more information.
Information Services is transitioning STARS to MyAccess@APS for login.
When is it happening?
The transition will begin Friday, April 26, 2019, at 5:00 pm and continues through Monday, April 29, 2019, at 5:00 am.
How will this impact Staff?
STARS will be unavailable beginning Friday, April 26 through Monday, April 29, 2019. Starting on Monday, all staff will log into STARS in a different way. You will use MyAccess@APS to log into STARS.
- If you don’t have an APS email address, then this will be a significant change. Your supervisor has your username and password for MyAccess@APS. Once you are logged into MyAccess@APS you will see the STARS icon.
- If you are familiar with MyAccess@APS/OneLogin, then the process is easy. You will simply log into MyAccess @APS and click on the STARS icon
For users to access STARS, from outside of APS, after the transition, users need to set up their MyAccess@APS profile with a cell number.
What do staff need to do?
- Log into the MyAccess@APS system from inside the APS network (http://myaccess.apsva.us)
- Change your password if prompted
- Follow the prompts to set up your security questions (this will enable you to change your own password in the future!)
- Click on ‘Profile’ and enter your cell phone number (this is required so you can receive an access code to enter and then access applications from outside the APS network)
- Begin using the MyAccess@APS portal so you become familiar with this new page
Why is the change occurring?
- After the transition users will use the MyAccess@APS page to access STARS
- STARS will be available through single sign-on
- The security of the user’s personal information will be increased with the addition of Multi-Factor Authentication
The user will no longer be required to enter a separate username and password or use the desktop icon to gain access to STARS. Click the link below for information on transitioning from OneLogin to MyAccess.
