EDDIE and Web Intelligence to utilize NetID 8/11

EDDIE and Webi to utilize NetID on 8/11
Posted on 08/03/2017

After August 10, 2017, EDDIE and Web Intelligence users will login using their NetID login and password. This means the Business Objects ID and password users had been using for both EDDIE and Web Intelligence will no long work.

Why are we making this change?

We are making this change to reduce the number of IDs and passwords required to access University applications.

How will users be impacted?

  1. When logging into EDDIE or Web Intelligence, users will need to use your NetID login and password.
  2. The EDDIE login screen will have a new look. https://answers.uillinois.edu/ua/page.php?id=73768
  3. The Authentication type will need to be changed to LDAP the first time users login to Web Intelligence https://answers.uillinois.edu/ua/page.php?id=73769
  4. On August 10, both EDDIE and Web Intelligence will be unavailable from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm while we make this change.
