How do I request OnBase access for a new user in my department?

The request for access must come from the data owner for your specific department. If you’re not sure who that is, no problem. The Academic Dean, Department Head, or Director can initiate the request by submitting a JIRA through the Imaging & Document Management (IMG) JIRA project or by emailing us at onbase@utdallas.edu. Once we receive the request, we can verify who the data owner is, get their permission, and then complete the access request.

In addition, if it’s not already installed, you may need to request your department tech or Help Desk install the OnBase software on your computer.

If you have an employee leave, removing access is the same process – Create an IMG JIRA or email onbase@utdallas.edu and have the department’s data owner request access be removed.
