There are two different roles in MitID. One role is for private individuals, which is used to identify you as a person when you log on to public services or private banking, etc. The other role – called MitID Erhverv – is for businesses/institutions.
If you need to send or receive secure mail, you should use AU’s secure mail plugin.
To get access to MitID Erhverv, you need to complete the access request form on support.au.dk.
You will not often need to request particular rights, but, if you do, you can select the most common of these using the options available on the form – or you can describe your particular requirements in the comments field.
Once AU IT has received your request, we will check your employment status in AU’s HR system. We will also conduct monthly checks to ensure that you are still registered as an employee at Aarhus University and that you still require access as a professional user.
You will receive an email asking you to activate you access to MitID Erhverv using your personal MitID. After you have done so, you should use your personal MitID to sign in to public systems when you need to act on behalf of the university. There is a clear distinction between using MitID as a private user and using MitID as a professional user as an Aarhus University employee. After sign-in, you can select which role you require.
In principle, you can have more than one role as a professional user – for example, if you are also a member of an association board. If you have multiple professional user roles, these will also be listed separately from each other.
It is still possible to use all the existing MitID forms of identification, including the app, code display, code reader and chip.
The digital world requires you to be more precise about your role than the analogue world. Here are a few examples of when to use MitID as a private person and when to use MitID as a professional user:
When you use NemLog-in and encounter this pink box it is an error in NemLog-in – it is not your MitID that fails.
