Guest or Subaccounts (EN)

Subaccounts are intended as temporary accounts. Each employee or student can request guest users in their own context.

  • Guest accounts can be requested from the ZID by email to helpdesk@uni-ak.ac.at, by phone at extension -2107, or using the contact form. The sub-accounts are created by you after activation. Instructions are given below.
  • Guest accounts have access to ownCloud. This enables files to be uploaded and shared. You can request other services (e.g.: Mail, etc.) from the ZID

Create a sub-account

To do this, call up the service page and click on “User Administration“.

Now log in with your p-number and click on “Sub-Accounts” on the left.

You can see already created sub-accounts. To create a new account, click on “New Sub-Accounts“.

Now enter the name of the subaccount under “Description” (Bezeichnung), assign a password and you can also set an expiration date. When you are done, click on “Submit Changes” (Änderung speichern).

Now you can print out the access data for the sub-account by clicking on “Access Data” (Zugangsdaten).

Activate Account

Before the subaccount can be used, you have to activate it. This is done by logging into the service pages with your sub-account (bXXXXXX). To do this, please click on the User administration item. Then a pop-up window should open where you have to enter the b-number and the associated password.

After that, the activation with the current date should appear under “Account Status”.

  • IMPORTANT: The subaccount is only activated for guest users after activation! *

Editing a Guest Account

To do this, call up the service page again and click on “User Administration“.

Now log in with your p-number and click on “Sub-Accounts” on the left.

You can see a list of your available guest accounts. If you click on an account you can edit it:

Here you can now set the name, the password, an expiration date, or delete the account. After you have deleted the sub-account, you are free to create another one.

Confirm the changes with “Send change” (Änderungen senden). Then you come back to the subaccount page.
