ARCHIVED: WebTech MS SQL Server accounts for instruction at IU

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.
The WebDB service will transition to a new design and support model beginning in fall 2018. In the interim, only MS SQL environments will be available for summer 2018 sessions through the Canvas WebDB tool. If you have questions, fill out the WebDB Request Form.

If you are an IU instructor who wants to use WebTech Microsoft SQL Server accounts for a class, make sure that you are familiar with the requirements below.


To access and use the WebTech WebDB tool within Canvas:

  • You must be the instructor assigned to the course.
  • The course must be current; if the course is expired, you will not be able to request access to the WebDB tool.
  • Off-campus users must be connected to the IU VPN.

Allow 48 business hours for account creation. This is an automated process, but if there are any problems, delay is possible. If you have any issues with course creation or have any questions, fill out the WebDB Request Form.

Other information

  • UITS will delete all student accounts two weeks after the last day of class. Individual account extension requests must be received before the end of the course. Approval will be subject to space considerations.
  • UITS cannot promise up-to-the-minute recovery of accounts. Further, UITS does not offer recovery of data for individual accounts in cases where data loss is the result of user error. UITS encourages all users to maintain copies of all scripts as a sensible measure.
  • UITS staff are available from approximately 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday. If you schedule labs or class assignment due dates during the evenings and weekends, UITS staff will not be available for immediate problem resolution.
