Log in to access the UBCMS website authoring platform.

A standard UBITName and password are required to access the UBCMS. Admin accounts work as well as personal accounts, but they must be Active Directory (AD) and not other systems like ITORG. But before you can actually see any content, you will need to have a specific role in the UBCMS itself. Your Unit Web Leader will need to request access on your behalf, and specify what levels of access you will need and which websites you will be working on.
We recommend you start at the Web Management site homepage -- https://ubcms.buffalo.edu -- where you will also find project announcements, timely alerts, training opportunities and supporting documentation.
If you are logging into the Classic version, you will land on the Welcome page. To get to Flex UI, look for the link to 'Switch to UBCMS Flex UI' in the right sidebar which will load Flex UI's Start page. (There is a corresponding link there to get back to 'Classic UI.')
The Start page has primary links to Sites and Assets in the page center, as well as a link back to Classic UI. Other tools are accessible through the top left and top right of the screen. Some may require special permissions or advanced knowledge of the UBCMS.

The 'Use Classic Authoring Experience' setting in User Preferences defines in which version pages will load. When selected, pages will always load in the Classic version. When deselected, pages will load in the new Flex UI version.
