What is a Login Alias

The Login alias is an alternative username, that a user can use to sign into SIMS ID.

A user will be able to login with the Alias or with their provisioned SIMS ID username.

For users where SIMS ID is used to sign into Office 365 or Google, they will be able to use this Alias, or either their Office 365 or Google usernames to log in to SIMS ID.

Managing Your Login Alias'

To reset your password click on the “Hello your name” (top right of screen) and choose 'Change Password'

Once in your profile click on the "My Identities" tab to open a drop-down menu where you can click on the " My Login Alias' " to be taken to the alias' page

From here you will either be able to select an alias from an existing list of verified alias or you will be able to add a new custom alias to do this

Click on the "custom" button within the page and enter the login alias you wish to use which should be a valid email address. Once you have entered this click on the "+" button and a verification email should be sent your login alias.

Once you have received the email simply click on the verification link within the email and you should be taken back to your profile page (if you have logged out or have timed out of SIMS ID during you will be asked to login in during the verification process) where the new alias will have been verified and can be used as a login alias.

Once the alias has been verified you will be able to login into SIMS ID with it alongside your SIMS ID account. The alias will also be added to a list of verified alias' for your SIMS ID account that you will be able to switch between when you want.

Only one custom alias can be active at any given time, so if you have multiple custom alias' all you need to do is click on that option and it will become your current active custom alias.
