Access to SAGE requires authentication and authorization.
Authentication is provided through your UW NetID. It confirms that a unique person is logging in with a valid password. See Accounts and Passwords for more information.
Authorization is provided through Access to Systems, Tools, Resources and Applications (ASTRA) which is a system that stores information about who can use a wide variety of administrative applications and tools across the UW campus.
Unit administrators use ASTRA to grant authorization, with an appropriate role, for using SAGE. Users who need access will see a list of their ASTRA authorizer(s) displayed when they attempt to log in to SAGE without an authorized role. They also may obtain authorization by contacting their department administrator, or if this is not possible, their Dean's office administrator.
