Web Hosting - External Developer Access

Below you will find information for Web Hosting customers who partner with external (non-UW) developers who require site access in order to publish files and perform other account management functions.  

Granting External Access

*** Departments should first reach out to their local HR staff who can aid in obtaining a NetID(s) for external developer(s) ***

There are additional options to obtain NetIDs for external partners, which allow access to the UW network and handle firewall exceptions via the UW Madison - Virtual Private Network (WiscVPN)

Manifest allows the creation of Identities that can get NetIDs for people who do not have NetIDs through Manifest Group invitations.

-- There are additional steps for those who will require access to restricted data accounts that require Static WiscVPN assignments for firewall purposes.

-- If an external developer has a static IP assignment from their ISP or place of business we can safe-list it for firewall purposes.
Please contact Web Hosting ( if you are partnering with external developers so we can assist in adding their contact information to your web account and supplying credentials.
