Register for Identity Access Management System (IDAMS)

Last updated

From: Education and Skills Funding Agency

We use IDAMS as a single sign-on for a number of our education-related services.

It minimises the amount of logins that you need.  

Requesting access and permissions 

Each organisation has at least one IDAMS super user, who manages account maintenance such as access and permissions to our services.  

You should contact your super user first for these types of requests. 

Our guidance on how to register for IDAMS accounts also includes information on how to request role permissions.

Registering for an IDAMS account

Our guidance on how to register for an IDAMs account provides information on registering and activating your account.  

Resolving account maintenance requests without a superuser 

In some circumstances your super user may not be able to resolve account maintenance issues for you.

We can help resolve queries, if you:

  • don’t know who your super user is

  • think your super user has left the organisation

We will need to know:

  • how urgent your account maintenance needs are

  • your email address

  • the UK Provider Reference Number (UKPRN) of your organisation

  • the service or product that you need account maintenance help

Need support

If you have a specific query about registering for an IDAMs account, please include any relevant information such as access issues in your query through the Customer Help Portal.
