IAM in Service Catalog
By use of examples, the following table illustrates the classes of human resource groups that have been provisioned into the UW groups service:
Cost Center based:
Employees with a Worker Position with a default cost center.
Grouped by type: staff, academic worker and student worker.
Groups contain UW employees with a Worker Position which has the default cost center ...:
Supervisory Org based:
uw_org_supervisoryorg_isch_000001_staff uw_org_supervisoryorg_isch_000001_academicworker uw_org_supervisoryorg_isch_000001_studentworker
Employees in Positions within a Supervisory Org reporting structure. Supervisory Organizations are defined in a tree structure, which reflects the hierarchy of the university. Currently the Supervisory Organization groups reflect this hierarchy. They contain people in any given supervisory organization along with workers in any of it's child supervisory organizations.
We created a top-level supervisoryorg group without subtypes. This top-level group includes the Supervisor of that Supervisory Org and all Workers with Primary Worker Position assigned to that Supervisory Org or with that Supervisory Org as a superior.
For example, UWIT_000001 contains ALL people within the UWIT_000001 supervisory organization as well as people in every child UWIT supervisory org. The UWIT_000001 supervisory organization group will contain all people within UW-IT.
Supervisory Orgs are grouped by type: staff, academicworker and studentworker. Also has a supervisory org group for all workers regardless of ECS Code.
Groups contain UW employees in a supervisory organization that also meet the following criteria:
Supervisory Org Job Management based:
Employees in Job Management positions within a Supervisory Org reporting structure.
The job management supervisory org groups will not be broken out further into sub-types by ECS codes.
Groups contain UW employees in a job management supervisory organization that also meet the following criteria:
Job Management Supervisory Organizations usually are made up of workers with the following ECS Codes:
Academic Unit based:
Employees with an Academic Appointment within an Academic Unit reporting structure.
Includes paid and unpaid academic appointments.
Human resource groups are based on data integration of UW HR data available in the Operational Data Store (ODS) into the groups service, such that a hierarchy of groups exists for each requesting unit or organization, identified by its supervisory organizations, cost centers and academic units. The groups are updated nightly.
The following table summarizes the most relevant aspects of data integration between the ODS and the groups service, related to identifiers, display names, descriptions, memberships, contacts, classification, and access controls.
Data Integration Notes
Group IDs for human resource groups include supervisory organization id, cost center, academic unit and affiliation as derived from UW HR data in the ODS.
Group Display Name
Display names include HR data source type and value .
'Staff in Supervisory Org ISCHL_000001'
Human resource group descriptions contain the HR data source type , value, and description followed by appropriate use guidelines, e.g.
Human resource groups have no owner or contact specified.
Group Access Controls
The membership viewer control permits interactive browser access for all UW employees (i.e. members of the group uw_employee).
UW Google Apps
Human resource groups may be enabled for use in UW Google Apps, upon request. Groups in UW Google Apps will not allow anyone to view the membership.
Human resource groups may be enabled for use in UW Exchange, upon request. This business rule is in place to ensure the privacy restriction on the group memberships, which the current design of the UW Exchange service may or may not be able to enforce by itself.
Group Membership List
Human Resource group memberships are reconciled nightly to accurately represent current operational data rather than historical data. Members are identified by UW NetID.
This section summarizes the data quality standards for human resource groups represented in the groups service.
