The UMID went live in Fall 2007. The UMID allows users to define their own enterprise directory username. This username can then be used to authenticate into any application or service connected to the enterprise UM-DS. This ID can be leveraged not only by central applications, but also by individual schools and departments that utilize the UM-DS. The UMID and other features of your UMID account can be administered at the UM Account Management Site.
