Activate a Role


This manual describes the functions of the role management from the viewpoint of someone who is to make use of a role.


In order to make use of a role that was assigned to you by your role manager you first need to activate it. For this you will receive a personal coupon from your role manager. This can be done via e-mail, internal mail or in person.

Under "Redeem Coupon" you can redeem the coupon issued for this purpose by your role manager. 

The actual activation is done in the Selfservice.

After logging in with your username (e.g.ab123456) and the corresponding password, select the item "Redeem Coupon" in the navigation menu.

Redeeming a role coupon

Now you enter the coupon delivered by the role manager. You will then be asked to select the e-mail address on which you want to receive notifications about the role.
In order to be able to redeem the coupon, a TIM-Campus linkage is required. The linkage can also be carried out at a later point by your organizational unit. As long as this has not been done, you will receive the error message that the requirements for the activation of the role have not been fulfilled. The coupon, however, is still valid and can be redeemed after a successful linkage within the expiration time of 14 days. When you fulfil these requirements and the coupon was checked for validity, your role is directly assigned to you and can be viewed under "Roles" in the Selfservice (see figure 1).
Furthermore, you can decide whether you want to receive e-mail notifications when changes were made to the role. This can be done in the Selfservice in the tab "Options".
