If you have questions, or would like to recommend or request service features or capabilities for Husky OnNet, please contact:

Thank you!  UW-IT’s Husky OnNet Team


Pending = in development or awaiting development schedule

Proposed = ideas for features not yet confirmed for development

Service Feature Proposed/Pending/Delivered Estimated Delivery Estimated Cost Comments Updated
Search Domain Activation Proposed May 2018 Configure HON-D services to support autofill for specified user domains. This appears to be feasible but requires prototyping and testing. The team will attempt to review this option late 2018/early 2019. 1/2019
Single SignOn with Husky OnNet Proposed Feb. 2018 Use Windows credentials at system start up to automate the login of the HON win app – user signs into the Windows system, the system automatically starts the HON app and logs the user into the HON app.

May 2018: Initial reviews look promising; more investigation/testing required.




The following historical requests were evaluated by the team for feasibility and deemed either not feasible or not-supportable.

Downloadable WIN and MacOS client apps customized with HON-D server names included Proposed Aug 2017 To use HON-D with WIN or MacOS devices, users download the client apps from UWare. These client apps are preconfigured with the general Husky OnNet servers. To use a HON-D server, users must ‘add a server’ and enter the department’s HON-D server name. In this feature request, the department has asked the HON team to prepare customer WIN and MacOS clients with the HON-D servers already included.

5/2018: the team has reviewed this request. This is outside the scope of the team’s resources at this time.

Device Authorization for use with HON-D Proposed Feb. 2017 Not feasible.

By adding device authorization, a department may use two authentications for access to their Husky OnNet Slice service: 1) UW NetID via UW Groups and 2) device MAC.

Update 6/15/17: initial review finds that the device MAC info is not provided to the central f5 device precluding an authorization step facilitated by the central device.
