Basic, Pro, or Business account users will be required to have a login to submit projects and resources in PA-SHARE. This will be either Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (CWOPA) credentials or Keystone Login.
Users with Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (CWOPA) credentials will use their pa.gov email address and CWOPA password to sign in to PA-SHARE. This includes contractors working for the commonwealth that have "c-" at the beginning of their pa.gov email address.
For users without CWOPA credentials, Keystone Login will serve as the authentication platform for PA-SHARE.
Keystone Login is a single, secure user account management system for doing online business with any Commonwealth of Pennsylvania agency. The commonwealth introduced the universal Keystone Login in December 2019 as the universal replacement for the former Keystone ID and PALogin systems. Many commonwealth agencies utilize Keystone Login for citizens and anyone doing business with the commonwealth so they can access programs and services.
Keystone Login provides increased security with advanced authentication tools to prevent unauthorized access and protect personal data. Users also appreciate the increased convenience of having only one username and password for multiple commonwealth services.
