  • User name
  • First and last name
  • Email address 
  • IC
  • What unit will they be put in on the assignee menu and where should it be located If they need permissions, who should it be modeled after
  • Phone number
2) Who Manages CIT Remedy accounts?

Remedy accounts are managed by the Relationship Managers. All account requests and account deactivations need their approval.

3) How can my CIT Remedy user account imitate my NIH Network credentials?

Except in a few rare cases, Remedy User Names are set up to match your NIH Domain login name. To set your Remedy password to sync with your NIH Network credentials, you must set your Remedy password to be blank. This will cause Remedy to automatically seek your credentials on the NIH domain. 

A Remedy Administrator can assist a customer with resetting their Remedy password.

6) Which server should I be using when logging on to CIT Remedy?

The correct server to use is with a TCP entry 3030.

To set the server, on the Remedy client login screen, select the Accounts button in the left corner of the login box. Once selected, a dialog box will open showing a list of servers. There should be a green check mark next to the server, which is the correct server.

If the server is listed, but has a red “X” next to it, click on the “X”. This will change it to a green check mark.

If there is no server listed, then the server will need to be added. This can be done by clicking on the ADD button and then typing in the server name.

Click OK to return to the login screen.

7) I have to keep typing in my name and password every time I log in. Is there a way to automate this?

As with servers, you can add your User Name by clicking on the Accounts button. Once the Account window is open, select the Users button, then select the Add button and type in your Network ID. Select OK twice to come back to the login screen.

There is no way to save your password in the client.

This feature is only available in the Remedy client.

8) How do I have information corrected in the service ticket log?

If there is inappropriate (like SSN, passwords, etc.) or incorrect information in the service ticket that needs to be removed, Remedy Users or customers will need to contact a Remedy Administrator to have this information removed from the service ticket.

9) I am not receiving email notifications I should be receiving from Remedy. What should I do?

Users may not be receiving email notifications because of an incorrect email address entered in Remedy, or they may have requested that they not receive notifications. Remedy users can update their email addresses in the NIH Enterprise Directory (NED). When NED is updated, the new email address will be passed on to the CIT Remedy system automatically.
If the NED email address is correct, the Remedy User account may have the default notification mechanism set to NONE. A Remedy Administrator will need to update the account information to restore the email notification function..

10) Why am I unable to view a specific form, field or tab in Remedy?

If a form or a specific field or tab is not viewable by a Remedy User, the Remedy User may need to be granted specific permissions for viewing job related forms or a specific field or tab on a form they already have access to. A Remedy Administrator will need to update their account. (Note: some forms/fields/tabs may need to have managerial approval.)

There are several reasons why this message would occur:
  • user name or password are incorrect
  • an incorrect URL was entered
  • the Caps Lock key is on
  • the web server is not available

Make sure you are using the correct user name/password credentials, that the Caps Lock key is off, and that you are using the correct URL - If your problem persists, please contact a Remedy Administrator.
