Learn about UBCMS roles and permissions or submit changes to allow or restrict access to your site. Be sure to have individuals removed from the UBCMS when they are no longer assigned to the UBCMS or leave your unit.
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 active UBITNames must be sponsored by their unit. This is often done by creating a volunteer appointment through University Human Resources.
For most authors who do not have User Admin access, please work through your site managers to ask the Help Desk to modify or create user access.
To ensure the integrity of your site, we only permit Site Owners or Managers to request changes to the permissions associated with UBCMS user accounts.
Usually, these roles are connected with 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.
