Cloud App Integration Request

Service Overview

Thousands of consumer software applications and plug-ins are available on mobile and cloud platforms, often for free, and almost always "at your own risk" from a data security perspective.  These applications (apps) have associated legal and privacy terms and conditions that you often must agree to before using them. Campus community members might use consumer or third-party apps in their daily lives with their own personal data, but when these apps are used with University data, care must be taken to ensure that regulatory, compliance, data security, and legal requirements are maintained to safeguard student, employee, financial and privacy data that is entrusted to the University.

UR has vetted and signed enterprise agreements with several cloud platforms (e.g., Box, Google, Microsoft O365, Zoom, Blackboard, etc.).  If you wish to integrate a consumer or third-party application with one of these supported enterprise platforms, the application must meet a number of requirements prior to integration:

  • Must support the same or higher level of regulatory, compliance, and data security requirements as the associated UR enterprise platform
  • Must support UR's single-sign-on (SSO) and password requirements
  • An enterprise agreement (contract) must be signed and funded by an appropriate University official

Submissions for integrating consumer or third-party apps to existing UR enterprise platforms will be reviewed bimonthly by UR's Cloud App Vetting Group and you will be notified of the outcome.  Please review Previously Submitted Cloud Apps and Current Blackboard Apps prior to submitting the Cloud App Integration Request form.

Available To

Faculty, Staff, and Students.

Getting Started

Submit a completed Cloud App Integration Request form.

In order to expedite the approval process, please include as much detail as possible about why you feel it should be enabled (e.g., does this affect just you or a group of people? How does this make a particular task easier? Do you have a sponsor and funding for an enterprise agreement? etc.). Please note that your request may take 1-3 months to be fully vetted and for a decision to be made.
