Access

 

Access to most of UAB's electronic systems is dependent on an individual having an active appointment in ORACLE. Many incoming faculty need access to UAB’s Integrated Research Administration Portal (IRAP) and the UAB Campus Learning system before they officially start at UAB in order to begin moving their research programs from their previous institution to UAB. The following process will allow departments and divisions to sponsor incoming faculty access to IRAP and the Campus Learning System before their ORACLE appointments are active. 

    1. Incoming faculty apply for a Blazer ID through Blazer ID Central. Departments can use the One-Card Pre-Hire Form to start the process to request a Blazer ID.
    2. Once the departmental pre-hire process is complete and they are active in the Oracle system, they may use their Blazer ID and password to login to the Campus Learning System at https://www.uab.edu/campuslms/ or into the IRAP system (https://irap.uab.edu/).

If you would like to log into IRAP:

  1. Go to the UAB homepage
  2. Choose Admin Systems from the QuickLinks pick list at the top right of the webpage
  3. Click on the IRAP button (the top right green button in the center of the screen)
  4. Click on the large green Login button and use your Blazer ID and strong password to log in. (If you are unable to log in - contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
Please see our Training and Demonstrations page for more information or for demonstrations on how to use the system.
 
IRAP Security Access Form
Please use this form to request or change an individual's security access to the IRAP system. Security access allows Personnel to have access to all IRAP records within the org to which they are assigned.

Any questions regarding security or access to IRAP should be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Anyone with an active appointment in Oracle is automatically granted log in access to IRAP. 

Once individuals can log into IRAP they will be able to view records:
  • On which they are named
  • Of others for whom they have been named as delegates
  • For which they have security access

The only exception is the MTO/Material Transfers. Individuals can view records in this module that they have created or on which they are named as the PI. Other access is via MTO eReports.

Security Access:

Divisions, departments and schools can request that individuals be granted access to view all records associated with their particular organization. 

  • Individuals with security access for a particular organization will be able to view all the records in which personnel having a primary appointment in that organization are named.

Reports have been developed to help individuals determine what security has been granted to specific personnel or for a specific organization.  These reports are available in IRAP eReports>Admin eReports>Security Roles by Name or Security Roles by Org.

Delegate Access:

Individuals are responsible for managing their own delegates. A tip sheet on how to assign a delegate is located on the IRAP Training page.

  • Delegate access can be assigned on a module by module basis. For example, one person can be assigned to view OSP/OIE/Grants and Contracts records and another person to view IACUC/Lab Animals records.
