Notice of Upcoming UMDashboards User Security Automation

Nicholas Bentley Announcements

In an effort to further align and automate UMDashboards user security with campus best practices, the Dashboards & Analytics team are pleased to announce the following upcoming enhancements that will impact both new and existing users:

  1. New Users Auto-created: Upon navigating to UMDashboards, new users will automatically be created and assigned access to UMDashboards.  As is currently the case, users must have a directory id and password to access the dashboard.  User security on restricted dashboards will be assigned automatically, where applicable, as follows:
  2. Mirrored KFS Web User Security: Financial and account restricted Research Dashboards will mirror KFS Web user security.  Users will continue to be able to access all applicable units as well as individual, exception-level accounts.

These changes to user security will be implemented and become effective on Monday, February 8, 2021.  Thank you for your patience and support of UMDashboards as we work through these changes.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us using our contact form on our webpage.
