CAHNRS IT Operational Changes

CAHNRS IT is continuing our support of all CAHNRS faculty, staff, and volunteers. In light of the uptick in COVID cases and Governor Inslee’s latest request, we will work on a remote-first basis, and we will provide in-person support for exceptional circumstances only. Our focus is on providing top-notch tech support and a safe working environment for all.

CAHNRS IT is Adopting a New Ticketing System

CAHNRS IT is currently in the process of migrating from the legacy ticketing system to Jira. This migration will enable CAHNRS IT to facilitate more rapid responses if external support is necessary (I.e., Phone and Network Service Requests, Password Resets, Zoom Support, etc…) by allowing us to work directly with other teams around the University.

CAHNRS IT will migrate open requests to the new Jira system over the next few days as we continue working through our current support requests.

You can submit a request to our new Jira IT Support portal via the familiar link below.


In addition to this, the “CAHNRS IT Support Portal” desktop icon you may have on your desktop will take you to our new IT support portal. You can use the desktop icon to access the portal quickly and submit IT support requests.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.


Thank you,
