The IRIS Web portal provides employees the ability to access Employee Self-Service and other administrative functions found within the IRIS system and other University system software solutions.

Log into IRIS Web using your NetID and Password. If you encounter difficulties with your NetID and password, check the OIT website for NetID Help.

Applications on IRIS Web include, but are not limited to:

Employee Self-Service (ESS) allows employees to review and, in some cases, update or process their own information/records. Functionality includes:

This Application allows Principal Investigators (PIs) to access ledgers and other financial reports for their WBS elements. The user will only be able to access WBS elements on which he/she is listed as the PI.

This quick reference contains instructions on accessing PI reports.


There are 3 ways to access IRIS.  They are:

  • IRIS GUI:  Access IRIS through the SAPGUI client if locally installed on your machine.
  • IRIS Web:  Access IRIS through your default internet browser using the Web GUI
  • IRIS Mobile:  Access IRIS Mobile through your default internet browser using the Fiori Launchpad

The inbox contains work items from IRIS and Employee Self-Service for review and approval.  This is also the inbox that Principal Investigators might use to approve electronic ledger reconciliations.  Approvers who are IRIS users may also use the inbox in the SAP Gui or in “IRIS on the Web.”   Persons who are not IRIS users and who approve ESS items only, or PIs that only approve ledger reconciliations must use this inbox.

Reports available from this tab include:

  • Queries from the IRIS Data Warehouse, including reports on IRIS data, as well as Financial and HR Legacy queries containing data from the pre-IRIS systems. For assistance with IRIS Data Warehouse queries, contact
