Notes for IT Service Desk

  • The 'eligible to enroll' nor 'enrolled: all'' groups are auto-loaded from Banner every morning.
  • Alumni have access to OAKS now- they need to be a member of the role_Alumni group in AD. You can confirm that this is the case by checking Azure- can escalate to IAM if they are missing. Please note, though, that although Alumni may be able to pull up and log into OAKS, they do not have access to open up the course pages for old classes unless as part of an Incomplete grade or specially requested by the course's academic department AND approved by Academic Affairs/Provost.
  • If they are indeed registered for a course for the current term, and it has been more than a day since they registered for the course, escalate to IT-EAM-IAM.
