Community Review

This consultation on the Big Ten Academic Alliance Provisioning Cookbook will be open from December 1, 2022 through January 31, 2023

Document for review/consultation


The Big Ten Academic Alliance’s Identity Task Force, in conjunction with other Internet2 community members, has taken  the combined experiences and wisdom of several BTAA consortium schools and beyond to build a cookbook of best practices for provisioning and deprovisioning. Whether you’re inventing an identity and access management (IAM) program for the first time, re-inventing one, or just want to do what you already do better, this cookbook can help. The cookbook will be presented during a December 7 session at the Internet2 Technology Exchange in Denver.

Now, we need your help to make it even better. Before we call it finished, the authors are working with Internet2 to open it up to a community consultation. We need the broader community to read our best practices and let us know how we’re doing. If you see something missing or an item that you don’t agree with, use the community consultation to let us know. Your assistance can help us put the finishing touches on a document that we’re confident will help a lot of organizations make provisioning work well. The consultation is open until January 31, 2023. Thanks in advance for helping us with your feedback.

The cookbook provides a lot of good advices on provisioning and authorization, but is silent on the use "secondary" or "auxiliary" logins for specific authorizations or roles.  (E.g. student vs. instructor in LMS system, "admin" access within a service (whatever that might mean in for a given service, auditors, or information security).)
