Application Business Portal Password Expiring Email

If you received an email stating that your password to the New York State Application Business Portal is expiring, please update your password. You will continue to get an email daily, starting 5 days prior to your password expiring, until your password has expired. See below for a copy of what the email looks like. At the bottom of the email are alternate instructions if the link in the email doesn’t work for you.


The Business Portal provides access to the IDEx, which is being used to collect data from institutions for many of the HEDS data collection forms. Although we know that CEOs/Presidents are not directly involved in the everyday data reporting it is necessary for them to have accounts as they oversee the staff in their institution who are responsible for these tasks.


Here is a statement directly from the SEDDAS User Guide

Super Delegated Administrator – Super DA

  • can create other roles to assist in the administration of SEDDAS
  • can perform all of the functions within SEDDAS
  • Super DA SEDDAS account is automatically created based on the CEO of record in SEDREF via an overnight process.
  • changes to CEO in SEDREF will close the SEDDAS account for the former CEO and create a SEDDAS account for the new CEO with all of the entitlements of the former CEO.
