How do I request a PirateID name change?

Your legal name is the name in the Social Security system. Your PirateID username is first derived from your legal name.

If your legal name changes (marriage, for example) contact Human Resources to update your name in the Banner system. When your legal name changes, your email display name in the address book will automatically change.

However, your PirateID will stay the same. To change your PirateID username to match your legal name, submit the Accounts and Passwords Support form.

Your Exchange address book and online name can be changed by you at any time through the Banner Self Service app in Pirate Port. This changes the display name only, not your PirateID.

My department has hired a new faculty member, but her contract isn't yet signed. How can I keep her PirateID active past 45 days?

A prospective employee’s PirateID username is created for the candidate of choice (PeopleAdmin) the next business day and expires after 45 days.

Once the prospective employee becomes an active employee in Banner, the expiration is removed.

To extend the prospective PirateID past the 45 days, please submit the Non-Employee Pirate ID Extension request.

One of my staff is leaving the department. How do I remove her access to ODS and other administrative systems?

Per the Supervisor Notification for User Account Termination Policy, when an employee exits ECU, transfers or retires, the supervisor submits an Employee Account Access Termination Request before the exit date to ensure the user’s PirateID is deactivated and access to systems such as Banner or Appworx is removed.

If request is not submitted, the PirateID is automatically terminated according to the default schedule.

If necessary, an employee's access can be reduced at the supervisor's discretion.

One of my staff just retired. Do retirees get to keep any ECU privileges?

First, submit the Employee Account Termination Request before the termination date. Otherwise, the PirateID is deactivated according to the default account deactivation schedule.

Note that retirees can keep their email address if they reactivate their PirateID through the passphrase maintenance portal after the deactivation date. The account must be accessed at least once a year to remain active.

Retirees are also allowed to keep scholarly ECU websites or blogs by submitting an IT service request within six (6) months of retirement and keeping their ECU email active.

A retiree has just been hired as a contract employee. What now?

A retired ECU employee who returns as a contract employee must reactivate his/her old PirateID through the passphrase maintenance portal.

Our new hire was a temporary employee in another department, and his PirateID has not been re-enabled. How do we take care of this?

When an employee leaves a department, the supervisor is required to submit an Employee Account Access Termination Request before the exit date.

However, if an employee transfers from one department to another, the PirateID (terminated by the previous department) may not be automatically re-enabled. To ensure a smooth transition, the new department should submit the Accounts and Passwords Support request.

At this time, ITCS contacts the previous department before reactivation to ensure that the former department’s user access has been removed.
