Request access

Kentico directory access

New and current content editors who need access to a website directory need the permission of that directory’s primary publisher. The UW Bothell Advancement & External Relations Web Team assigns roles to accounts after receiving permission from the respective primary publisher and new content editors have completed the introductory Kentico training.


You must meet the following requirements to gain access to edit

  • Be an employee of the University of Washington Bothell
  • Be approved by the organization's Primary Publisher to post content (primary publisher list by directory)
  • Must have a UWB Access Account (UWBID) - this account request is submitted th employee's supervisor.
    • This is different from a UW NetID or email account. See requesting a UWBID for more information.

Requesting access

Here are the typical steps for gaining content editor access. Contact with questions.

  1. With their supervisor's approval, the interested employee contacts the directory's primary publisher. Find all directories and their primary publisher here.
  2. Primary Publishers can request access for the interested employee by sending the information outlined on the Primary publisher administration page to
  3. While the primary publisher is contacting the web team, the supervisor of the employee needs to request a new "UW Bothell Access Account" (unless the content editor already has kentico access but is in need of additional directory access). This only creates an account and does not grant Kentico access; access is given via "roles" that the Web Team assigns after the intro editor training.
  4. Once the account is created, the interested employee may sign up for an introductory editor-level training with the web support specialist/Kentico trainer Ashley Magdall. 
  5. After completing the training, the trainer assigns the designated roles to the trainees within two business days. 
  6. They can enroll in the publisher-level training after completing the editor-level training. Student-staff cannot be granted publisher level access so should not take the training.
