As each department becomes an OnBase user, the document owners determine who should have access. User accounts are created during implementation. After the initial implementation, access requests are made to the document owner. If the document owner approves the request, the document owner can request that an account be created.
To request OnBase access (*preferred paperless method):
Initiating an OnBase access request form can be done electronically using Adobe Sign in two ways:
- If you do not have Adobe Sign sender access, contact your Adobe Sign business owner who can initiate the OnBase access request form for you. View the list of Adobe Sign business owners on our Adobe Sign webpage under the heading: How Do I Request Adobe Sign Access?
Be sure to provide the business owner with the following information: Your name, email address, CSUN ID, extension, portal ID and machine ID.
You will also need to provide the following information to the business owner:
- Which workflow to use, either: OnBase Access Request - Level 1 Data Users or OnBase Access Request - No Level 1 Data
- Which document group(s) the OnBase user will need to access
- Whether the document group(s) contain level 1/confidential data
- If the document group(s) contain level 1/confidential data, whether a VP, Admin & Finance signature is already on file for this employee
- Type of access the OnBase user should have (Power User/User/Index Only/Scan Only/Other)
Any additional description of the access or a document to attach that further describes access
If you have Adobe Sign sender access, you can log in to Adobe Sign and initiate the form.
