Persons who are formally affiliated with UAB gain access to university-managed electronic resources by means of an officially recognized credential called a “BlazerID."  A non-UAB person who needs access to these resources is not eligible to create a BlazerID, and is thus required to obtain a guest username and password.  Guest accounts (also referred to as “XIAS” accounts) must be sponsored by a UAB employee, and are subject to an approval and setup process. 

Who is a guest?

Guest accounts can be used for many purposes at UAB.  Guests can fall into a number of categories, including but not limited to:

  • A researcher accessing data stored on a UAB SharePoint site
  • A colleague from another institution who needs to access a UAB file share
  • A vendor that is remotely supporting a UAB-owned system via VPN
  • A site visitor conducting an accreditation review who needs local network access
  • A consultant who needs system access to conduct on-site installation or maintenance  
  • A high school guidance counselor who needs access to Banner

 

FOR SPONSORS

As a Sponsor, use the links below to begin the process of setting up a guest account.  Once you have completed the underlying form(s), the sponsored user or users will receive automated emails that will guide them through the process of completing the setup.  Once the setup is complete, you will receive an email confirmation and information on next steps.

I would like to…

      Give a guest access to hardware or software that they support in your area

      Give a guest access to the UAB VPN

      Give a guest access to a SharePoint site or other Windows-based resource

      Give a guest external access to the Admin Systems


FOR GUESTS

As a guest, you will receive an automated email that with instructions on how to complete the setup of your sponsored account.  You can use the link below to manage certain aspects of your account, such as a forgotten password.  Please note that as a guest you are not able to initiate the account creation process; this must be done by a valid UAB-affiliated sponsor.

       Manage my guest account

The following Oracle products are covered under a site license and are available to the entire UAB system at no additional cost and may be used in a production environment. They may be downloaded directly from Oracle by clicking on the product below. Server products are for use on Solaris, AIX, OS/390, UNIX, and Windows. Client products are for use on Windows and MAC.




Software may be downloaded directly from Oracle via their TechNet site .  You are only authorized to download products for production use from the Oracle site that is listed in the Products A"vailable section above.  Both current versions and archived versions of Oracle DB are available on the Oracle web site.  In general, all versions of the referenced database products are authorized under the UAB agreement including the most recent release.  Should the link not point to the most recent release of a product, please contact AskIT for assistance.

LabVIEW is a powerful graphical development environment, for signal acquisition, measurement analysis, and data presentation. LabVIEW also provides the flexibility of a programming language without the complexity of traditional development tools. LabVIEW is an open environment designed to make interfacing with any measurement hardware simple. With interactive assistants, code generation, and connectivity to thousands of devices, LabVIEW makes gathering data as simple as possible. LabVIEW has more than 500 built-in functions designed specifically for extracting useful information from any set of acquired data and for analyzing measurements and processing signals. LabVIEW also provides tools for data visualization, user interface design, Web publishing, report generation, data management, and software connectivity. For more info on the LabVIEW product see the National Instruments web site.
