ECMS - NetID Login to Imaging System

This document explains the ImageNow/WebNow login process.


Imaging System Change to Scoped NetID Login

For users of ImageNow and WebNow at the UW-Madison, the ImageNow desktop and WebNow web clients will have different authentication processes. The sections below detail these differences.

ImageNow Desktop Client

When you run the ImageNow desktop client you will now enter your credentials in this format: netid@wisc.edu, e.g., BuckyBadger@wisc.edu. The password remains the same password you have been using:

WebNow Browser Client

Web browsers can store bits of data in something called a 'cookie'. If you've used WiscMail or WiscCal then you have used the process that WebNow uses, with an additional screen. This login process will store on your computer a cookie that signifies a successful login for any of the services that use it (WiscMail, WiscCal, WebNow). If you have previously logged into any service that uses the authentication process WebNow uses (e.g., WiscMail) then you may jump directly into WebNow because that cookie exists.

If you are logging into WebNow without having first logged into some other campus service then the following screens will be presented to you:

  • The first screen is the University System organization selection page and this is the change from the former process. Select your System campus and then click on the Select button (the example shows the Madison campus selected):

  • The second screen asks for your NetID and Password. Enter here, as you have been doing, just the NetID, e.g., "buckybadger", then your NetID password, then click on the Login button to continue:

    university of wisconsin madison login page
  • The WebNow client should function completely as it has before.
