Theon: Informatics School Database
Theon is the School's primary information management system. It is a central database holding local data on taught students, research students, staff and visitors. The service consists of a PostgreSQL database, a web-based client for administrative staff (called TheonUI) and a simpler web interface for all other users (called TheonPortal) to view specifically extracted sets of information. Theon is tightly integrated with data held upstream in Registry through EUCLID and HR. Data pulled from Theon drives a number of system processes such as account creation and authorisation.
Information for Administrative Staff
Access to Theon is controlled by the relevant administrative groups in the School. If you need access beyond the default level for staff and students speak to Student Services in the first instance.
