Major upgrade of eduSign on Wednesday February 1

On Wednesday, February 1, SUNET will make a major upgrade of eduSign's underlying infrastructure. This is to improve both the stability and availability of the service and to simplify future testing and updating of the service.

This will unfortunately mean that the eduSign service will be in maintenance mode throughout the day. The maintenance window is between 09:00-16:00, i.e. it may be that they will finish earlier but expect that the service will not be available during this time.
