We have transitioned the MiCOURT Suite Tools to a cloud-based environment. Our Azure government-cloud servers are safe (FIPS-140 and CJIS compliant), reliable and will allow us to provide access to our applications to any and all JIS courts without impacting performance or reliability. Current users should not be impacted by this move.

  • Any new links created in the Court Display Admin MCAP application will now point directly to the cloud server (links will now start out micourt.courts.michigan instead of mcap.courts.michigan).
    • To minimize disruption for the courts, JIS plans to automatically redirect existing links to the new server; however, this feature has not been turned on yet.
  • The Public URL calendar has several changes:
    • Hearing Type, Attorney, Prosecutor, Arresting Officer and CTN have been added.
    • Courtroom/Hearing Location has been removed.
    • The font size has been reduced and a print-friendly stylesheet has also been incorporated.
      • Printing from the web browser will result in a user-friendly paper version of the calendar.
    • Remember that the Public URL link will never display non-public cases.

Tip! Create a display in MCAP for each hearing officer specifically for the Public URL link. Add each link to the court’s website to allow the public to look at an individual judge’s calendar.
