Single Identity Management System

  • This project status remains at urgent status (I.E. Yellow).  For AD this effort remains on hold until the non-technical aspects of the project have been resolved.  For META, KUL has completed efforts to resolve the problem where KUMC users are being provisioned at KUL first, and then getting a KUL formatted user-account name.  The project team is also continuing discussions for data synchronization, so that phase 1 can come to a conclusion.  Mapping exercises are ongoing.  Test systems are also being set up for this effort.  Both KUL and KUMC are also renaming duplicated accounts as they are identified.
