Provider Update - October 1, 2018

Harmony Password Resets 

High: Important Harmony update

Effective Immediately:MSU-AA Helpdesk staff will begin completing Harmony password resets for provider agency staff that have become locked out of the Harmony system.

To obtain a Harmony password reset, the provider agency user who is locked out will send an email request to *If the email is sent by a supervisor or someone else at the agency, the phone number of the actual user should be included in the email as they will need to validate their own security information.

The email must include:

  1. User's full name
  2. Name of agency for which user works, including the specific branch if agency has multiple branches
  3. A phone number (including Area Code) where the user may be reached.

The user will be contacted by helpdesk staff, at the phone number provided in the email, to initiate the process of user validation and password reset. *Two attempts to contact the user will be made. If unable to reach the user via phone after the 2nd attempt the email will be returned advising that a new email request must be sent when user is available.

Password Resets will be handled as a priority and will be worked in the order in which they are received.

There are several error messages that a user may receive when a Harmony login attempt is unsuccessful.  Screen shots of the possible error messages are included on the next page of this bulletin to help the user identify the cause of the unsuccessful attempt and what steps should be taken to resolve the issue.

The following are examples of possible error messages that a user may receive when an unsuccessful Harmony login attempt has occurred:

1.    "Username or Password is incorrect."

This message appears when:

  • The system recognizes the login but the password is incorrect, or
