Accessing EID Data

It can be used to retrieve identity and affiliation information, authenticate UT EID holders when logging into departmental systems, and allow departmental systems to control access to resources based on information stored within TED.

- The 'fat cookie' refers to a modified version of a normal browser cookie that is encoded and digitally signed. The fat cookie contains biographical information about the user. It allows services not deployed on specific ITS-administered machines to use UT EID logon authentication.
University Community EID Listing
The University Community EID Listing is available to Members of the university community. Users can search for an EID by a number of criteria, and can view EID-holders' names, EIDs, department/college, address, date of birth and phone number. Clicking on the EID may display further information, depending on the user's authorizations. For instance, developers can view UIN.
This search can also be linked as pop-up from your application. See Using the EID
UT EID Administrative Services Application
The administrative interface for the EID System allows authorized users to view the details of individual EID records and carry out required tasks in the EID system.
Developers who need access to this tool should contact the EID Team.
