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. This allows for NetID creation and access to the UW network, which handles firewall exceptions via the UW Madison - Virtual Private Network (WiscVPN).
*** UW-Madison Departments are required to work with their local HR staff who can aid in obtaining a NetID(s) for an external developer(s) using the POI (Person of Interest) process***
There are additional options to obtain NetIDs for external partners, who do not have a UW-Madison Department to sponsor the request. DoIT Web Hosting maintains a Manifest group that allows for the rare exception of populations that cannot obtain NetIDs through POI via a UW-Madison Department.
