AMP and SSB University Integration

To access SSB University from AMP simply log into AMP and choose the University tab within the main navigation.  This will automatically log the user into SSB University using the same account as AMP. 

Note, users that utilize single sign-on (SSO)  should also access SSB University using the University tab within their AMP instance.

All AMP users will have access to the AMP Product Support site via the new support link within the AMP header.

Important Notice

Ending Support for AMP Desktop

In recent times SSB has released many options aside from AMP Desktop to allow testing of your websites and applications. Based on the improved functionality in the other SSB testing tools and statistics indicating decreased usage, we will no longer offer AMP Desktop with the AMP 2016.2.0 release, currently scheduled for the March 2016 time frame. If you are using the AMP Desktop tool, please note that it should continue to function until the AMP 2016.2.0 Release. If you have any questions or would like guidance on accomplishing AMP Desktop functionality with other AMP testing tools, please contact AMP Support at
