In the recent months we prepared the switch to a new open source login system (keycloak) which is more comfortable for world map users. In detail the new solution works far better with password managers (btw: Firefox Lockwise is available now). We hope to improve your experience while using the OER World Map!
There is one thing which affects you as a user regarding this internal system switch:
Please request a new password with “Forgot password” to re-enter your password
Because passwords are stored encrypted in our database we can not simply copy passwords from the old solution to our now open source solution. This is a good thing, because its proof that we take data protection seriously. In order to switch to the new login system you’ll need to request a password change and re-enter your password to the new system:
Request a new password:
You’ll be redirected to the “Forgot your password?” screen where you can enter your email address:
After entering and submitting the form you’ll see a confirmation message:
Please note: Due to security reasons there will always be a green confirmation message. If you’re not sure which email you used for your profile just wait a couple of minutes. If you receive a mail from us, it was correct. If not, just try another email address of yours, you can try to request a new password multiple times. The email will look like that:
After clicking the link in the email you’ll be redirected to this screen where you can re-enter your old password or you can choose a new one:
After submitting you’ll get a confirmation message. Everything is done now and you can just navigate to the world map and login as usual:
