Explain to Guests How to Request a GuestID
This article applies to: GuestIDs
There are two ways to create a GuestID.
An OU administrator can create the object (GuestID) in CornellAD and give it membership in the appropriate group(s).
(How do I - as an administrator - create a GuestID?)
A Guest can request a GuestID and membership in a group. This requires that an administrator has already created a Guest-Only group.
(How do I - as a guest - request a GuestID?)
Guests need two pieces of information when they request their own GuestID:
- The URL of the request form
- The name of the CornellAD group in which they need membership
The request form URL is: https://guestid.ad.cornell.edu/
You will also need to give the guest the name of the Active Directory group, so that they can enter it on the request form.
Alternative: Provide a Custom URL for GuestID Applications
You may choose to provide a custom URL for GuestID applications. When guests use the form at the custom URL, the Group Name field is already filled in.
Here's the format for a custom URL:
- Replace NameOfGroup with the actual group name.
- There are no spaces anywhere in the URL and it is all one address.
A seven-day countdown starts when a guest sends the request for a GuestID. The guest must confirm their request (by following the instructions in the email message they receive) and a reviewer must approve the request within that seven days, or the GuestID will be deleted.
