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.
- DoIT Web Hosting Managed Invites: Contact Web Hosting with the name and email address of the individual(s) and we will initiate the invitation to activate a NetID.
