This page outlines the various account types at UMIACS and their management methods.

Do not share any UMIACS-affiliated account for any purpose. Action may be taken against your account if you do so.

UMIACS Account

A traditional UMIACS account consists of the following components:

Active Directory Account
Provides access to UMIACS-supported computers, email, secgroup controlled resources, web services, and the VPN.
Jira Account
Provides access to the JIRA Request Tracker. Please note that it is possible to set a separate password for this account, at which point it will no longer be synced from your Active Directory Account. Changing your Jira password DOES NOT change your Active Directory Account password.

Guest / Collaborator Account

Collaborator Accounts
Sponsored account to provide temporary access to UMIACS Web Services for non-UMIACS collaborators.

Request a UMIACS account

Fill out the account request form located at the UMIACS Account Request webapp. Please note that for the PI field you will be entering your PI/Professor/Sponsor's account name here at UMIACS. Also indicate any labs you are a member of in the notes field to speed up access to your lab's resources.

Once the form is submitted, it will send an email with a link to verify your email address. You must click this link to verify your email address before the system will send email to your PI to review the account request. Accounts can take anywhere from a few hours to a day for installation, depending on how quickly your PI approves your account.

Password Requirements

We have the following policies in regards to our ActiveDirectory passwords:

  • Minimum Password Length : 8 Characters (more is allowed)
  • Minimum Character Classes : 3 Character Classes
    • English uppercase characters (A - Z)
    • English lowercase characters (a - z)
    • Base 10 digits (0 - 9)
    • Non-alphanumeric (For example: !, $, #, or %)
    • Unicode characters
  • Password cannot contain (or match a substring of 3+ sequential characters) of your username or any part of your first or last name.
  • Password was not previously used in last 5 passwords.
  • Password has not been compromised in a known data breach.

It is your responsibility to secure your password. Please try to choose a strong password and use secure protocols.

Changing account password

If you know your current password

  1. You can use the UMIACS Password Web Application to change your password.

If you do not know your current password

  1. You can reset your password yourself if you have already registered a mobile phone number and alternate E-mail address in our Directory Application.
  2. If your account was a UMIACS Collaborator Account, your password can be reset by your sponsor via our Requests Application.
  3. You can stop by the UMIACS Help Desk in room 3109 Iribe Center with a photo ID. (not currently applicable)
    • If you are unable to physically stop by the UMIACS Help Desk, you can have your Account sponsor (PI) stop by the UMIACS Help Desk to reset the password on your behalf. The account sponsor will then be responsible to conveying the password to you in a secure manner. (i.e. Telephone, where they could identify you by voice)
