The ITS Identity Management team receives frequent requests from groups around campus for centralized and automated provisioning and de-provisioning of user accounts. User provisioning and deprovisioning involve the process of creating, updating and deleting user accounts in multiple applications and systems. We currently use a home-grown utility known as IMPROV for this purpose, but it only provisions Onyens and Guest IDs. It does not provision for other forms of accounts. IMPROV also does not do deprovisioning, so the team uses Perl scripts for this purpose.
This project will implement midPoint, an open source identity management and identity governance solution, as our deprovisioning engine. This project is necessary for follow-on projects such as deprovisioning Zoom and other applications, which are waiting for this work to be completed.
