What is OnBase, and where can I get help with it?

OnBase is a document management system used by multiple departments at Indiana University to store document images and files on a central server. OnBase allows for the scanning, storage, and retrieval of paper documents, as well as the importing, storage, and retrieval of electronic files; it also helps manage workflow by routing documents to queues custom designed for individual departmental needs.

UITS has ensured that a university-wide enterprise license (ELA) is available. Any department, school, or campus can use the software via the ELA without cost. Scanners and other non-software license specific costs still apply.

If you are considering adopting OnBase for your department, or if you need assistance with an existing implementation, email the Enterprise Document Management (EDM) team at obreq@iu.edu.

If you currently use OnBase, your questions may be answered by searching the IU Knowledge Base.

IT Pros and OnBase Development Environment Users can find information about OnBase clients, scanner requirements, working in the Dev Environment, etc. in the OnBase at IU Confluence Space.

You can find installation packages and instructions at IUware.

For help, contact your campus Support Center.
