BTAA and TIER Collaboration Provisioning and De-Provisioning

Last Month
This Month
  • Product evaluations: we’re finishing up the creation of evaluation questions to help us evaluate the functionality of various provisioning engines. The results of our evaluations will help us create best practices that are supported by today’s software offerings, discover additional best practices from how products perform various tasks, and provide a product comparison chart for those getting ready to implement a provisioning solution. We’ll also see what today’s software can’t do and hopefully provide a list of needed functionality to the TIER developers.
  • SCIM schema cataloging: We’re collecting extensions that have been made to SCIM’s schema to have a comprehensive understanding of SCIM’s uses and vocabulary. We hope this work can benefit TIER’s developers and the community in general.
  • Bulk transaction API requirements: based on needs from TIER and discussions at the TIER Campus Success Program face-to-face, the TIER developers would like to create API calls for handling transactions on large numbers of identities in bulk. This working group is gathering use cases from a number of sources that we can use to create a write-up of requirements. We’ll pass those requirements to the TIER API WG to implement.
