Update: As of January 10, 2020, 1Link® users may now access the 1Link-IPR portal. Please view the updated 1Link System Requirements and download the 1Link-IPR User Guide to get started.

1Link® Migration: Phase I – Interim Portal Roll-out

As per previous communications, the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY) is developing an all-new 1Link® portal. The migration to this new portal will happen in phases, starting with phase I of the transition on January 10, 2020.

As part of phase 1, 1Link users will access an interim portal called 1Link-IPR to utilize certain 1Link features that will include reporting, current/prior day Overnight Investment Account balances, and supporting details. 1Link-IPR is compatible with Windows 10 and will be accessible via a new URL which will run in parallel with the current 1Link portal.*

As part of phase 1, please note the following:

 

All standard and special report subscriptions will be migrated to 1Link-IPR; post migration, please create and manage all future subscriptions in 1Link-IPR.

 

Any existing Custom reports will not be migrated to 1Link-IPR; members are welcome to create custom reports as needed directly in 1Link-IPR.

 

Access to 1Link-IPR requires a user to enter a Screen Name and Password. The Screen Name is a concatenation of your current 1Link Login ID and Company ID separated by the “@” symbol (ie. [email protected]). Upon first logging in, a new password must be set by clicking ‘Forgot Password’ in the 1Link-IPR portal. Please reference the “1Link-IPR User Guide” (below) for detailed instructions.

 

To add new users and to modify existing user access, the current GAF process will remain in effect.

 

New features available in 1Link-IPR include:

  • All accounts, report subscriptions and custom reports will be visible across your entire organization
  • Self-service password reset will be available via a ‘Forgot Password’ link
  • Transaction search results are now exportable to multiple file formats

As always, the FHLBNY is committed to ensuring that its systems provide benefit to your institution in a safe and secure manner. To prepare for the migration, we invite you to view the updated 1Link System Requirements and download the user guide.

You will receive a communication notifying you of the launch of the interim access portal. If you have any questions regarding phase I of the 1Link portal migration strategy, please contact your Relationship Manager at (212) 441-6700 or a Member Services Desk Representative at 1-800-546-5101, option 1.

*Until all phases of the 1Link migration are complete, all transaction activity, such as wires and advance processing, must still be accessed and executed using the current 1Link portal.
