Novell – eDirectory, Identity Manager, LDAP, Radius

Oracle – SGHE Banner, Luminis, Oracle Identity Management

The Current Workflow at TRU

  • 3 paths – email path in Novell, other system access via system admins and Human Resources and Student Information System via Oracle IDM provisions Luminis portal product
  • its the other system access that is a challenge – it is paper based with signatures (ASAR process)

Problems

  • many vendors don’t work with eDirectory, Novell continues to lose their customer base
  • ASAR process is slow and prone to error – results in privilege creep and incomplete access removal on termination
  • What is working is the Banner/Oracle stack for staff and students which automatically provisions to the Luminis portal

Future

  • implement Active Directory solve some of the problems with Novell and ASAR
  • still plan on using Novell Identity Manager to provision Active Directory going forward
  • **NOTE : BCIT had to pull out Novell IDM due to extremely poor performance with group changes as well as running into a 5000 member group limit (BCIT has needs for groups that are orders of magnitude larger
