I have to log in every time I use uowireless. How do I set it up so I don't have to log in every time?

Yes, go to wireless.uoregon.edu and run the setup process to enable UO Secure. Using the UO Secure wireless network remembers your password and encrypts information sent between your device and our network.

What is the difference between my Applications Manager login and my Applications Manager Oracle login?

You log in to Applications Manager using one set of credentials. This consists of your username and password. Your username is the same as your BANNER username. Your password will be the same as your Duck ID password. In order for you to run Applications Manager jobs, you need to be able to connect to the BANNER databse. To do this, you set your Applications Manager Oracle login password to match that of your BANNER login password.

When you change your BANNER password, you must also change your Applications Manager Oracle login to match.

Can I change the names of Applications Manager output files?

You cannot rename the files in Applications Manager. Applications Manager generates a unique sequence number that is then built in to the output files so they can be identified in Applications Manager as well as be uniquely identified on the Applications Manager servers. If you find that you absolutely need the name of an output file changed, you can "ftp" the output file from the "job details window->output files tab" to your desktop and rename it there.

In Banner, can I change the modules/chains to be able to output as either lis or xls files?

# BANNER output files are by default listing (.lis) files. We have some modules/chains that produce XLS (Excel) output, but that usually is determined by a prompt value. If you have a need for an output that is required to be in Excel format, submit a service request and the folks at Information Services will see what can be done to get you the output you need.

How do I select students who are enrolled in a given course in the SIS DWHS?

The Registration object contains not just enrollments, but also records of course drops, complete withdrawls, etc. In addition to constructing the query you want, using data from the Person and Students objects, for example, do the following:

  • To select students who are actually taking a course for credit, qualify the Credit Hours attribute in the Registration object to be >0
  • To select students who are officially enrolled, including audits, no-refund drops and withdrawals, qualify the Count in Enrollment attribute in the Registration object to be = Y.

I'm getting the error "JInitiator version too low" or "Required plugin is not available and needs to be installed" when I try to log in to Banner.

The problem

A Java update on August 15th, 2012 has caused problems for some users trying to log in to Banner. Users with Java 1.7 who try to log in may get one of these error messages:

  • "The required plugin is not available and needs to be installed"
  • "JInitiator version too low"

You will need to change a Java setting on your workstation to resolve this issue; please follow the steps below for your platform (Windows or Mac OS X).

 

The fix: Windows

You can fix this issue by doing the following:

  1. Quit your browser (close all Windows in your browser, not just your Banner session).
  2. Open the Java control panel.
  3. Click the "Java" tab in the middle.
  4. Click the "View" button.
  5. Find the row where the 'Platform" version is 1.7.  In that row, click the "Runtime Parameters" field and add this value (be sure to include the quotation marks): 

    -Djava.vendor="Sun Microsystems Inc."
     
  6. Click OK.
  7. Close the Java control panel.

Firefox users

If you use Firefox, you may also need to re-enable the Java plugin:

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Select Add-ons from the Tools menu.
  3. Click Plugins.
  4. If the "Java Platform SE 7" plugin is disabled, click the Enable button.
  5. Close all Windows in Firefox, re-launch it, and log in to Banner again.

 

The fix: Mac OS X

  1. Quit your browser (select File > Quit).
  2. Open "Java Preferences" in your Utilities folder.
  3. Click the "General" tab.
  4. Repeat steps 5-8 for each installed copy of Java that is version 1.7 (the "Version" value starts with 1.7).
  5. Select the Java line by clicking on it.  
  6. Click the "Options" button.
  7. Copy this text into the "Applet Runtime Parameters" field (be sure to include the quotation marks):

    -Djava.vendor="Sun Microsystems Inc."
     
  8. Click OK.
  9. Quit Java Preferences.
  10. Log back into Banner.

Firefox users

If you use Firefox, you may also need to re-enable the Java plugin:

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Select Add-ons from the Tools menu.
  3. Click Plugins.
  4. If the "Java Platform SE 7" plugin is disabled, click the Enable button.
  5. Quit Firefox, re-launch it, and log in to Banner again.

Why can't I use any WordPress theme or plugin in UO Blogs?

UO Blogs has a large list of plugins and themes available for customers to use to customize their sites. These plugins and themes have been thoroughly tested and customized to ensure that they are compatible. 

There is more work that goes into installing a theme or plugin than just clicking the "Download" link; there is a committment to maintaining it as well. As UO Blogs updates WordPress, which powers this service, themes and plugins often need to be revised and updated to continue functioning.

Themes:

We ask that customers use the themes already available to them before requesting additional themes for UO Blogs.

If there is a custom theme you would like to use, see UO Blogs: Custom Themes.

Plugins:

In order to keep our UO Blogs network safe, secure, and reliable, we will no longer allow plugins other than those currently offered on UO Blogs to be installed.

Campus Press, our host company, hosts WordPress for a number of colleges and universities around the country. As you could imagine, they have to support a large number of different plugins for each WordPress installation that they host. Supporting hundreds of different plugins can be risky and create problems during upgrades.

For further information, please contact the Technology Service Desk.
