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,

CAHNRS Cloud Storage Outage

CAHNRS IT has been actively engaged to solve cloud file access with software and systems engineers across the WSU IT system and our vendor’s engineers over the last few weeks, and at this point, it is unknown when standard services will be restored.

As a temporary measure, CIT is going to begin migrating file shares to different storage platforms. Unfortunately, this will take time. All users of each file share will receive an email once we migrate each folder with instructions on how to connect to their files.

We know that there may be specific files that you may need while we are migrating your data. If you are unable to access your files via the standard methods, we ask that you put in a support ticket at We can create a copy of the data and provide it to the requestor.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

CAHNRS Cloud Access

CAHNRS IT is continuing to work with our storage vendor to address the speed and connectivity issues experienced by users. You may still encounter problems connecting to your file shares while we are working towards a resolution. Thank you for your patience.
