EDW Direct Connect Process is Changing

At 5:00 pm on the evening of September 12, 2019, how people connect directly to the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) will be changing. After the implementation, users will need to utilize their NetID and Password when accessing the EDW with tools such TOAD, SQL, etc. This change will not affect application accounts.

If you haven’t done so already, you will need to make a change to your Oracle client configuration. You can read how to do make this change with this KnowledgeBase article:

You will also need to make sure your NetID password doesn't include the ‘@’ symbol. If your password currently includes the '@' symbol, please go to to change your password. If your password still includes the '@' symbol after the implementation of this change, you will not be able to connect to the EDW.

If you have further questions, please contact the AITS Service Desk via one of the methods listed in this KnowledgeBase article:
