Getting access to SITS:Vision

SITS:Vision is intended for use only by central administrative teams. The process for getting access is to submit a Service Request available within the Self Service Catalogue of the Oxford Service Manager (OSM) system.

Access to SITS:Vision is managed through your Information Custodian. SITS:Vision access must be requested by the Information Custodian through OSM. Please note that as an active eVision/SITS:Vision user you will automatically be included in the mailing lists and membership of these mailing lists is mandatory. See the Mailing List policy and the Data protection pages

In order to request access to SITS:Vision, please follow these simple steps:

Getting your SITS:Vision access

What is an ‘environment’? How do I know which environment I wish to use?

There are many versions of SITS:Vision, different versions are used for different purposes e.g. development work, testing the system, live use of the system. Typically you will need to use SITS:Vision LIVE environment unless you are instructed otherwise. If you are still unsure, ask your Information Custodian to help or contact the Support Centre.

Who is my Information Custodian?

A list of Information Custodians is available from this website. Alternatively, log into eVision and select the ‘Access and Support’ option on the left-hand side menu, look at the box ‘Gaining Access to Student Systems’ and the link ‘View my Information Custodian’.

What should I tell my Information Custodian?

It would help your Information Custodian if you told them your Single Sign On (SSO) identification and environment you want access to. Sometimes, it can really help if you know of another member of staff within your section who has the type of access you need. Your Information Custodian can check their access and give the same to you. In particular, knowing what type of ‘User Group’ you want to belong to will help give you the appropriate access within SITS:Vision. Don’t worry if you don’t know this – the Support Centre will help identify it.

How does an Information Custodian request access?

An Information Custodian requests access via the OSM Self Service Catalogue. They will log into the OSM Self Service Catalogue using SSO credentials and search for 'SITS' to bring up the form. The Information Custodian can then complete and submit the form accordingly.

Once submitted, an OSM Service Request will be raised and yourself and the Information Custodian will receive an automatic email notification. The Service Request will be used to obtain further authorisation and setup your access accordingly. Once the access has been setup you will receive an automated notification with information on how to access SITS:Vision and further guidance. A member of the Student Systems Support Centre will contact you separately via MS Teams to arrange to supply login credentials.
