Changes to how employee access is provisioned - December 19

Wednesday, December 19, 2018

What is happening? The new campus human resources management and payroll system, Workday, organizes employees using a different strategy than the current campus system, Peoplesoft. Testing of the identity management system (WatIAM) configuration changes have uncovered discrepancies in Nexus provisioning outcomes when using the new and current sources of employee data (i.e. an employee may be placed in a different Nexus organizational unit, which may impact access to systems). IST and Human Resources are working to identify and resolve as many discrepancies as possible before the launch of Workday.

What is the impact? IST and HR are taking this opportunity to review and clean up existing employee data, but it is possible there will be a small number of inaccurate mappings that will need to be addressed after the launch of Workday (i.e. placing employee in correct Nexus organizational unit). IST is planning to share a list of known concerns in January 2019, at which time employee managers and Nexus security group administrators will be asked to validate the information for their organizational structure.

Questions about your organizational data? Please contact the Workday team, workday@uwaterloo.ca
