Overview and Goals
As the number of business applications used at Stanford increases, keeping track of who has authority to access data and perform administrative tasks becomes more complex. So does the work of granting and revoking authority when employees change roles.
To add ease to these processes, the Authority Migration and Privilege Management Enhancements project seeks to enhance the usability of Authority Manager, the Stanford-developed tool used to grant employees access to the university's many administrative systems.
Working with stakeholders from across the university, the project team has created a plan to update and enhance the Authority Manager interface and add modern functionality. These changes will enable us to:
- Make the process of managing authority more efficient for managers.
- Ensure we have appropriate controls over access to our applications and data.
