Overview

The person resource describes a UW person in an academic-centric way. If the person is a student, the person's name will be the name from the Student System. If the person is a faculty, that name will be provided by the HR system.

URI

The canonical URI specifies a person's UW regid. That person may be a student or an instructor.


Examples:

  • /student/v4/person/9136CCB8F66711D5BE060004AC494FFE
