Manifest allows the creation of Identities that can get NetIDs for people who do not have NetIDs through Manifest Group invitations.
For more information on populations that are eligible for NetIDs, see Getting NetIDs for Affiliate Populations
Identities belong to people and those people have roles that grant them access to resources, usually based on data. Authentication with a NetID does not imply any particular relationship to the University of Wisconsin, and does not grant access to any proprietary University resources (for example, Network, VPN or Office365.) If you need your people to have access to resources other than those controlled by access control that you are responsible for, you will need to contact the owner of those resources to gain access.
You will need a group to request access to specific UW services. It can either be a New Group or an Existing Group:
The following steps will tell you how to request the ability to invite people to create NetIDs while creating a new Manifest group. For more detailed instructions, please see Manifest - Create a Group.
Log in to Manifest.
The following steps will tell you how to request the ability to invite people to create NetIDs while using an existing Manifest group.
Your group must now be approved by the NetID data custodian; you will not be able to send invitations until the approval process has been completed. If approved, you will be notified via email.
Once the group is approved, you will be able invite people without NetIDs to join the group using the email invitation system.
Note: make sure to click the "request permissionÃ¢â¬Â button on the Manifest group overview page to request permission for external users in your group to create NetIDs:
Please see Manifest - Send Email Invitations for detailed instructions.
The recipient will receive an email with a link to create their new NetID as outlined in Manifest - Respond to Email Invitations for New NetIDs (Manifest, SpecPop) . For more information on when it is appropriate to use this functionality, refer to Getting NetIDs for Affiliate Populations.
Note: Groups that can add external people in this manner cannot also add groups as members.
Note:NetIDs that are believed to be compromised should be reported to cybersecurity and will be handled through the security incident management process.
If a person is no longer of interest to you, remove them from your group. It is important to remove people from your NetID eligible group when they are no longer related to this group because it ensures services are only provisioned to eligible accounts. The user will still be able to authenticate, but they will not be authorized for services through your Manifest Group or(if they are not eligible for another reason) eligible to have a NetID.
In most cases, Departments should set up their own Manifest groups and are responsible for adding/removing users and requesting services. The department can also re-use that list for their own purposes (eg, securing a website, maintaining a mailing list). Note: If someone has access because they are a paying customer of a service, the Service Owner should maintain the group (eg, removing people or setting expiration dates appropriately).
Manifest has capabilities to set an end date for someone's access to a certain Manifest Group using steps on Manifest - Membership Start and End Date.
No, people should only have one NetID. Always encourage people to click "I have a NetID" if they believe they already have a NetID account through a previous affiliation with UW, and try to recover it if needed using steps on NetID - Recovering a Forgotten NetID. This will prevent users having duplicate accounts. Creating a second NetID can cause confusion, has the potential for data loss, and should be a last resort after contacting support.
