Changing your SFTP password and reviewing configuration details

A secure 16 character password is generated for the configuration of the SFTP connection between your student information system and Turnitin. However, to ensure that you can maintain the high levels of information security policies that your institution may employ, you can regenerate this password at any time from the Roster tab.

  1. From the top-level account that you have already rostered, navigate to the Roster tab.
  2. From the Roster tab, select the Roster Settings section.
  3. Use the Regenerate Password button to create a new secure password.

    Once you use the Regenerate Password button, your connection with Turnitin will no longer work, as we will be unable to authenticate you. To ensure continued service, add this information to your student information system as soon as possible.

  4. Use the Copy button to copy this new password. You'll be able to then change the details you have configured within your student information system to recreate your connection with Turnitin.
