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

There are 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 safelist it for firewall purposes.
Please contact Web Hosting (webhosting@doit.wisc.edu) if you are partnering with external developers so we can assist in adding their contact information to your web account and supplying credentials.
