The UBCMS uses UBIT's LDAP directory so you must have an active UB account (UBITName) to access the UBCMS. That means you must be directly affiliated with UB in one of the following ways:
Individuals without UBITNames must be sponsored by their unit to be granted a volunteer appointment through University Human Resources.
To ensure the integrity of your site, we only permit Unit Web Leaders, Site Owners or Managers to request changes to the permissions associated with UBCMS user profiles.
These roles are always connected with one or more specific sites within the UBCMS. (Site access includes parallel access to related shared content and DAM files.)
People may have more than one role in developing or managing your website, and their needs may correspond to one or more of the UBCMS permission categories.
