Status: Open
Project: Kuali Rice Roadmap
Component/s: KEW, KIM
Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: Unspecified Future Release

Type: Rice Enhancement Priority: Major

Resolution: Unresolved Votes: 0

Remaining Estimate: Not Specified

Original Estimate: Not Specified

Rice Theme: Kuali Application Business Drivers
Priority Score: 8
Functional Justification : This would facilitate the mass removal of people from rules, groups and roles as they come and go. KFS has some global documents for Account and Account Delegate that facilitate a similar function. Where we can pull up the accounts that are assigned to a particular fiscal officer and then replace them with a new one. From an internal control perspective this also ensures that people who are no longer active are quickly and thoroughly removed.
Impact if not Implemented: People have to be removed and added one at a time and chances for making mistakes are increased.
Priority - KFS: High
Priority - KC: High
Priority - KS: No Priority
Priority - Rice: Medium
Usability, Kuali Application Business Drivers
Application Impact: Low
Effort Estimate: Medium ~ 500 hrs


This would be a screen and a set of APIs that would allow for mass removal or replacement of a principal from varous places including:

1) Routing Rules
2) Groups
3) Roles

Those are the main 3 but there may be more. We actually previously had a screen like this but it got removed as part of the KIM implementation.

Hi Chris, KFS thinks that this was going to be done in 1.1 or pretty quickly and are wondering if this got marked incorrectly? Thanks, Kymber

KFS would like to see this be 1.2 or 1.3 something after 1.1 but sooner rather than later.

The list for 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 is still incomplete. We're waiting to get more priority scores and then we'll try to assign release versions based on availability of resources, priorities, and the intended release date. I'm hoping to have a first cut at that early next week.

From Eric: I recently had an employee leave my team here and I had to go into 16 KIM groups and 10 KIM roles and manually remove him. Considering the amount of roles in applications like KFS and KC I have to think this sort of thing can be a nightmare to maintain. I think there is some functionality out there which does automatic removal from groups and roles when a principal is inactivated, but in some cases the principal might not actually be inactivated (i.e. maybe they are still a student even though they are no longer staff). Automatic deprovisioning is obviously what you really want to strive for, but in cases where that's not possible this functionality would be super useful.
