Using Federated Authorization for General Ledger (GL) Mart Access


Access to the GL Mart is governed by Federated Authorization, ensuring users only have access to the data required to fulfill their University responsibilities.

Information Technology has developed an online Federated Authorization process that makes requesting access faster and easier. It retains all the security and auditing benefits of a paper-based process while eliminating the need to print forms, obtain handwritten signatures, and fax forms to additional approvers.

To request access to the GL Mart, submit GL Mart Users Request form.

Note: if the group that grants access to specific GL accounts needed does not exist, it needs to be created first.  See this training video on how to submit GL Mart CDS Group Request.



Step-by-Step Request Process

The process is described in General Ledger (GL) Mart Request training video.
