Tim Farris chaired the meeting.
PeopleSoft (PS) Security
Security is a major issue with the retirement of Paul Harris. Ed Liao is learning how to handle security, and Tim has permission to hire a replacement for Paul. Once hired, the new person will do only security and Ed will be backup. A big concern is that many of the Io Consulting consultants are leaving at the end of July, including portal person Ravi Madhok. Tim hopes to arrange to have Ravi back for a short time when school starts.
Please e-mail any PS security issues directly to Tim.
PS classes are posted at PeopleSoft Training for Employees. A summer calendar is being developed but is not available yet. However, class descriptions are posted and will not change. General PS query is included in the overview class.
Tim will develop a testing signoff with Yuki DeSoto before the consultants leave. Lisa warns that when her area was audited, the auditors wanted to see testing scripts for PS Financials and HCM.
Auto-provisioning will be implemented by the end of next week. Khiem Ha is doing the work. Yuki is currently doing the provisioning by hand.
Version 7.3 is being tested. It will communicate with the LDAP, meaning that when a student changes a password, Blackboard will recognize the change right away, rather than waiting 24 to 48 hours for a transfer from Banner to Blackboard. August 11 is the official release date for V7.3, with the LDAP feature, at CSUDH.
Delores is looking forward to the implementation of Hershey for financial aid.
Next meeting: Tuesday, August 5, 10 a.m., WH 303
