JPA Tips

#1
With the imminent start of JPA for the army this might be an idea for some tips on how to improve your use of the system.

1. MEMORABLE DATA (MD). This is required if you forget your password. Currently there are about 50 resets each day where the MD has not been set or is invalid. There is only one rule you need to follow when setting your MD. MAKE SURE IT IS AT LEAST 8 CHARACTERS LONG otherwise it wont work when you need a password reset. This might mean you have to ignore the hint question e.g. mothers maiden name 'JONES', favouite car 'Mini' , would both be invalid. :elephant:

Memorable Data Reminder

That's a clever trick, since EVERY SINGLE O/S in the world depends on case senstive passwords, along with about 99.999% of user accessed software like,...Ohh, I don't know...Hotmail perhaps.

How the f**k did they manage that one.....? Ohh wait I've got an idea, was it cos they were cheap?

New version is 2.1 and has a black and white cover. I've been told that it will be sent out on 20 Mar.

Don't bother with the turorial. A single test (according to the initiators od this simple-to-use system) which confirms your preparedness for JPA - is to spell it!

A version of same question has been introduced for the TA/Reservists and Pioneers (multiple choice).

UNICOM is DEAD - LONG Live JPA!!!!

Where is my Disturbance Allowance / Travel claim.

WORKFLOW WORKFLOW WORKFLOW.

There are literally 100's of these claims going 'missing' each day(they are actually with JPA SA), because units, and specifically the person with the 'Unit Establishment Administrator' role have not completed the workflow responsibilities for 'Allowance Checker', 'Expense Auditors' etc . Unless there are valid positions in these roles for each organisation then these claims will fail until the posts are filled.

i.e. if your JPA unit is B Coy 1 Blankshires then there must be people in the Workflow roles for B Coy 1 Blankshires. NB They do not necessarilly have to be posts within B Coy 1 Blankshires.

Please resend mate without the JPA BATCO.

I'm not a Clerk and I've only done the "teach yourself - fire a tank" training on ARMYNET so still haven't a clue about JPA only that it'd better be simpler than the training package makes it out to be!

I've recently applied for both these allowances you speak of - need I fret? or be prepared to claim again in years time when we're just about coping?

GOTW

You need not worry as your claims are pre-JPA. However if they were made after 28 Feb they may not be paid until mid late May.

Dance,

You have just failed the first test!. Your password cannot have any repeating characters as "ll" and must include a number and a special character from a short list such as != etc

All of this is academic, as JPA will not be available for self service until after 14th April at the earliest.

Prior to that, unit HR Admin personnel will have access to verify that all of the data migration has gone as planned and to verify key information on unit personnel.

All claims submitted during the transitional period are being collated at unit level and submitted weekly via Intermediate Change Teams to JPAC for manual input and action.

In terms of workflow, all JPA organisations and heirarchies had to be set up for initial operating capability by 6 Mar 06, those that were not were challenged by the system, and told to get their finger out!!

I believe that their were very few units who had not met the initial deadline, and they were in the main, sorted.

Talk to your Unit Change Team, they will have the correct information to hand and will be able to advise you on what is correct and what is rubbish.

And for the rest of us out in the sticks who cant access Army Net...?

Armynet is available via the WWW, if you can access this forum you can access Armynet.

Links at https://www.armynet.mod.uk/

You need to register and provide some memorable data to gain access.

There is loads of JPA info on the main army website as well.

If the unit has not provided sufficient briefings and info for you, talk to your PSAO or RAO, they have a responsibility to communicate the JPA message effectively as part of the Army Communications Plan.

Good luck.
