How do I request access to a Workday security role for me or someone else?

  • To request a change in an employee’s security role access in Workday, please complete the appropriate form accessible under the “Security Roles” section under “Workday Forms.” Scan the completed form and email it to the email address instructed on the form.

Who can submit a security role request form?

  • As long as the name and information under “Role Assignee” is listed accurately and the form is signed by the appropriate individual(s), a security role request form can be submitted by you, your manager, or your Cost Center Manager.

Do I need to submit a separate form for each Cost Center or Driver Worktag (program/grant/gift) to which I am requesting security role access?

  • It is encouraged that you submit one form listing each Cost Center(s) or Driver Worktag(s) to which you are requesting security role access. However, if you are requesting a security role for multiple Role Assignees or involving different Cost Center Managers, please submit a separate form for each.

When should I expect to receive access after a security role request form has been submitted?

  • Security role request forms are addressed on a first-come, first-served basis and the timetable can vary based on demand. Generally, this process takes about three business days after initial submission, though this is not a guarantee.
