Request Access to Reports, Analytics, and Data

You need permission to access reports and visualizations on the BI Portal, UW Profiles, or to directly query the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW).

Our unit manages data permissions using two UW standards: roles and ASTRA. Roles were designed and sanctioned by the Data Management Committee (DMC) on behalf of the UW’s Data Custodians and implemented by the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW). ASTRA is an access management service managed by the Identity and Access Management (IAM) group in UW-IT.

Follow these steps to request a data access role for the first time or update your existing role.

Automated Software Access Process:

Requests for system or application direct access to the EDW requires that the system owner obtain a UW Application NetID Account, as documented in DMC Guideline 1017.

For further instructions and to submit a System of Application Access Request, go to:

Instructions for automated access


We want to make this process as simple and stress-free as possible. If you have any questions, please write us at and put “EDW Access” in the subject line.
