NIST KNOWN ISSUES

  • InfoAdvantage:
    • If, when accessing infoAdvantage from CORE, infoAdvantage is asking you to change your password, try entering your CORE User ID as your old password, then enter your new password (your new password must be 6 characters). NOTE: DO NOT ENTER YOUR USER ID IN THE USER ID FIELD.
  • System Performance: 
    • There are intermittent performance issues with infoAdvantage. This will cause infoAdvantage to periodically be unavailable for ~30 minutes at a time, as we take the system offline for maintenance. In those instances, an all user communication will be distributed.
  • UDOC Processing:
    • In order to process UDOCs, as a security administrator, you will want to:
