Employee Activity Hub (EAH)

Activity Hubs are the central repositories for UC San Diego's enterprise system data. Activity Hubs streamline business processes by providing an easy, fast, more reliable, and secure way to analyze both historical and current data from a centralized source.

The Employee Activity Hub (EAH) focuses on employee data reporting and analysis across all relevant systems and supports analysis of positions, pay, training, performance, and employee engagement.

By default, EAH data consumers will only have access to the department data that reflects their access in UCPath; i.e. UCPath transactors can only view the same data they can access in the UCPath portal.

If you are a transactor or report consumer and need access to department data outside those parameters, you must complete the UCPath Cognos Report Access form in the Employee Center.

Reports FAQ

Can I request an enhancement to an existing report or the creation of a new report?

Yes! If you would like to make a request, send an email to – you must include specific details regarding the report requirements, audience, and business justification. This email will automatically be converted into a SNOW ticket for review by the UCPath Reporting Team.

Is there a formal report prioritization process?

Yes. To help manage the many requests, the UCPath Reporting Team has a formal report development prioritization process. After the request is submitted to, it will be reviewed and vetted with the appropriate SMEs and a check made to ensure an existing report isn’t already meeting the need. You will receive a confirmation of receipt of request within 3 business days, but the full review will most likely take longer.

If the request passes vetting, you will be informed of the current backlog and anticipated timeline. Every request is added to the prioritization log which is reviewed by the prioritization committee on a bi-monthly basis. Depending on the urgency and importance of the request, you may be invited to the next Prioritization Committee meeting where you will have an opportunity to provide further input to the prioritization decision.

Where do I send report inquiries?

For Report Inquiries, other than access requests, send your questions to This will generate a ServiceNow ticket.

  • If you experience the following error message, this indicates the need to request access to a Cognos Report folder (reports are grouped together in Cognos security folders, which each require an access request).
