Login and access management

One of the key changes is the inclusion of an additional way to log in to Environment Online

Employees within organisations using Microsoft Entra ID (previously known as Azure Active Directory) can now log in using their Microsoft Work Account as an alternative to the existing Digital Identity via myGovID and WA Relationship Authorisation Manager login method.

Once an organisation has been set up, they will have full control over adding and removing users using their own Microsoft Active Directory.

To use this new login method, your organisation's IT administrator will need to set up and authorise access to use Microsoft Work Accounts. For more information on this process, please refer to the Representing an entity guide and Authorisation form.

Native vegetation functionality

The ability to apply for and track native vegetation clearing permit applications has also been added to Environment Online with this release.

It provides a streamlined process with an updated, fully digitised native vegetation clearing permit form [NV F01], the ability to apply to amend, transfer and surrender clearing permits as well as a dashboard to track and view associated records.

The following native vegetation clearing permit forms can now be uploaded through Environment Online, these include:

  • NV-F04 Application for an amendment (Form C4)
  • NV-F05 Notification of transfer (Form C5)
  • NV-F06 Application for surrender (Form C6)

For more information on this process, please refer to the Submit a native vegetation application: area and purpose permit s.51E or the Submit a native vegetation application – clearing referral s.51DA reference guides.

Additional enhancements

A range of enhancements have also been added to the existing functionality of Environment Online with this release.
