Log in to the Data Exchange web-based portal
Task card 1
Prior to requesting a Data Exchange web-based portal user account, your organisation must be registered with an AUSkey, and individual account holders within your organisation must be issued an AUSkey certificate.
For more information on setting up an Administrator AUSkey please follow the instructions on the Australian Business Register (ABR) website or speak to your IT Administrator.
To alleviate the need to submit multiple access request forms to the Department, it is recommended that the first person to access the Data Exchange within an organisation should be the designated Administrator. The Administrator will be able to manage user access for the organisation.
Anyone requesting Administrator access will need to complete a User access request form and submit this to the Data Exchange Helpdesk. An organisation will need only one Administrator; however multiple Administrators can be set up if the organisation desires. Once the Administrator account has been created, the Administrator can create additional users, outlets and activities.
If Administrator access to multiple organisations is required, the Administrator will need to obtain a separate AUSkey and email address for each account.
If you are accessing the Data Exchange web-based portal for the first time, you will need to complete six account activation steps. The account activation process only needs to be completed once. Then, as a returning user, you will only need to complete steps 1, 2 and 6.
