Before Using Drupal

Drupal is a web content management system (CMS) for the University website, which is a web-based system.


If you've completed these steps for a department and now need access to another department, please email us at webupdate@csustan.edu and let us know what department(s) you need access to. Otherwise, please be sure to complete all these steps:

Complete the OIT Security Request form. Once the form loads, complete with your information accordingly using the following steps.

1) Enter the employee's name who needs access
2) In the comments field, enter the website URL to which user will get access
3) Click on “add a system request” button, start typing and select “University Website” and role “Website contributor” and click the “add request” button.
4) Continue through with the following windows to submit the request. The person who needs the access will receive an email to accept the conditions, the supervisor will receive an email to approve as well.

New Users

New contributors, those needing access credentials for the first time, will be trained once the entire website migration process is complete. During the migration, departments that don’t have an active contributor may request updates to their web pages by emailing webupdate@csustan.edu.
