This project will create a new user interface for managing email addresses and aliases. This interface will let campus users choose which UNC-based email address they want as their primary. When individuals create an email address or alias, the interface will prevent them from duplicating an existing Onyen-based email address or previously claimed alias. This change is a step toward having a single authoritative source for all email tenants and remediates the persistent confusion among users and aliases. The project is also necessary for an initiative that will improve synching of directory information between UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC Health.

MidPoint will be used as a back-end registry for email accounts and aliases.

  • Phase 1 includes a midPoint connector to Microsoft 365/Azure to collect information on existing email accounts and aliases for the tenant.
  • Future phases will address other tenants such as Kenan-Flagler, Computer Science, etc.
