Logging into services using Haka login (for Oamk users)

Keywords: ,

If you use a web service that is provided by an organization that belongs to the Haka confederation (e.g. all the Finnish universities), you may see a Haka login option on the login page of the service. This means you can log in to the service using your Oamk account:

  1. Click the Haka login logo, see pictures of them below:

    Image 2: Old logo (still in use on some services)

  2. Next, you should select Oulu University of Applied Sciences (or Oulun ammattikorkeakoulu) from the organisation selection (see image 3).

    Haka: * requires authentication. Required personal data is transferred automatically to the service after authentication. Selected: Oulu university of applied sciences. Unchecked: Remember selection for this web browser session. Select button.

  3. Now you are forwarded to the Oamk’s MS login page.
    • During the MFA service break until May 30, 2024 you are using just your username in its short form (=“oamkaccount”)
    • When the MFA service break ends on May 31, 2024, you are forwarded to and your browser should show the page is safe. You should use your username in its longer form that looks like an email address: 
      • or, or
      • if you have had an account at the University of Oulu, your username is formed as, or, or
      • if you have an active account at the University of Oulu, use it from now on also for Oamk.
      • Please see MFA instructions if needed.
  4. In the next view, you can see what information is transferred from the Oamk systems to the service you are logging in to. It depends on the service, what information is needed: The information is not transferred until you click the Confirm (vahvista) button. (NB. Next time you log into the same service, this information will not be shown to you again unless the information has changed or you did not check the “Clear prior granting of permission…” before logging in.)
  5. Now you should get in to the service. However, some services may require you to accept their terms of use before that.
