Accounts for Special Services

Some services at UB require special accounts, including accounts for business purposes.  These include administrative accounts for departmental email contact or editing Web pages on Wings and survey service accounts.


Faculty and staff may request an Administrative UBITName to use for conducting university business, such as sending email from a service-named account, logging in to resources or editing Wings websites.


Request access to UB InfoSource data, derived from administrative systems. UB InfoSource access is available to Faculty and Staff as needed.


Employees authorized to access information on the university's mainframe use a CICS account to sign on to CICS using the Host on Demand (HOD) desktop interface. You must also be authorized to access HOD.


Get Oracle database connectivity. Academic Oracle System (AOS) accounts are used for courses requiring Oracle, Independent Study projects, research projects and personal education for those who want to learn about databases.


Create and distribute online surveys and analyze and report survey responses. The Web-based tool, available to faculty, staff and students, is an application hosted by Verint™ named Vovici Feedback™ and is licensed per individual through UB.
