4/22/2021: ITS is currently investigating an authentication issue with ArcGIS Online and is in communication with Esri Tech Support. The authentication issue is a vendor-related bug that's been reported by multiple Esri customers. Users who attempt to sign into an ArcGIS/Esri site with an institutional login (e.g., Brandeis UNet ID) will receive the following error message:
"Unable to login using Idp. Unable to validate SAML response"
Additional status updates will be posted to status.brandeis.edu.
