IAM in Service Catalog
In some important environments group names are in the same namespace as UW NetIDs. To accommodate this, group names (at least the NetID-style group names defined in this document) must be considered to be part of the larger UW NetID namespace. See UW NetID Namespace for more information.
This naming plan does not preclude the implementation of additional naming plans, for example a plan with longer names with a larger character set.
UW Group IDs are names in the UW NetID Namespace. The syntax defined here is a profile of the Base UW NetID syntax.
Note: group names cannot be created without a parent stem. Using the above example:
may not be created without first creating the group
UW-IT (acting as institutional group naming authority) controls the top-level stem space. Top-level stems can be created as needed, based on discussion with stakeholders and establishment of clear definition and requirements. Like any stem, a top-level stem must have a well-defined naming authority to manage it.
