The ERP UI is an administrative application portal as well as a user interface development framework that provides developers with templates and features to help facilitate the implementation of a campus-approved, consistent user interface for administrative applications written in Python/Django.
Just as UT Direct provides a consistent look and navigation scheme across all customer-facing pages, the ERP UI was created to provide the same consistency among administrative applications, as well as to address needed integration among web pages, the ability to locate web services, and consistent layouts and navigation.
The ERP UI adheres to an established set of best practices for administrative application development and interface design, which makes it richly featured and user oriented.
Staff can access applications in the ERP UI at: https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/erpui/landing/sitemap/
Developers should go to the ERP UI Styleguide located at: https://utdirect.utexas.edu/erp/styleguide/index.html for information about developing applications using the ERP UI.
- Page Types - Although business processes vary widely, ERP web applications tend to do many of the same things over and over–display information, present a form to be filled out, route a document. To take advantage of these similarities, we organized the ERP UI around a handful of different page types, each with a set of built-in components available for you to use by passing in parameters specific to your needs.
- Basic Framework Components - Action Bar, Titles, Metadata, Navigation, Toolbox
- HTML Structures and Content Area Helpers - Columns, Sections, Tables, Forms, Lists, Modal Dialogs, Pop-ups
The ERP UI is provided at no extra cost to the campus community.
ERP UI can be used by Administrative application developers.

The UT Service Desk will escalate issues as appropriate to the ERP Support Team. Users should report issues with an application to the developers of that application.
The UT Service Desk will provide Tier 1 support for end-user and application owner problems to the greatest extent possible. The ITS Help Desk can be contacted during business hours at 512-475-9400.
The UT Service Desk may escalate issues internally to Tier 2 support. Routine requests are typically responded to within one business day. Routine requests are typically resolved within three business days.
The ERP Support team at ITS Applications provides Tier 3 support. Requests are typically responded to within one business day, and are typically resolved within three business days. Tier 3 support is available via the ERP UI Support mailing list at email@example.com
ITS will notify customers about both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance using the Alerts and Outages page of service availability and service delivery issues. Services may not be available during the maintenance periods.
Scheduled maintenance occurs on a bi-weekly basis after business hours. To the maximum extent possible, installation of service, application, and security updates will be performed during scheduled maintenance.
Unscheduled maintenance tasks that require service downtime will be announced as soon as possible on the Alerts and Outages page.
Change notification: ITS will notify customers using the Alerts and Outages page of service availability and service delivery issues for ERP UI.
