XSEDE web services that support XSEDE federated login, do not conform to a uniform name and style for the SSO button. Once the name and style of the SSO button is determined in the design phase, this style will be applied to the services below that currently support the feature using different naming/styles such as the “XSEDE Login” button, "Other Sign In Options" button (XUP) and “Xsede OpenID Connect” button (XSEDE courses website, moodle.xsede.org), for uniform presentation and user-experience. The same finalized design will be used to integrate XSEDE Web SSO into other services identified in https://software.xsede.org/display/XCI-315
