Where do you get that Registry data? The web-services that help you get that
Ever wonder how someone else got the person’s affiliation data you’ve been looking for?  How about SUNet ID accounts information? 

This session gives an overview of what “Registry” data is and explains how you can use the Registry data to better integrate with UIT services on Accounts, Person, Authority, Course, Workgroup, etc.  The focus of this session is to introduce the web-services MaIS provides to help you manage Registry data in an automated way.
Join us for an overview of the following web services, plus a demo and Q&A:

  • AccountWS
  • Course XML
  • Person XML
  • StudentWS
  • Privilege XML
  • WorkgroupAPI

Presenter:  Grace Hung is a senior developer from MaIS (Middleware and Integration Services) team.  She is entering her 5th year at Stanford, and specializes in developing solutions for Registry services and client integration.

Location: Turing Auditorium (Polya Hall)
