In August 2011 UCSB Identity Management service released out next-generation service platform. The following info details changes to University business processes related to directory services and UCSBnetID provisioning.
New employees may now create a UCSBnetID by visiting the UCSB Identity Manager. An employee must first be entered into the Payroll Personnel System at least one business day in advance.
This service replaces the U-Reset Token system previously in use.
Student UCSBnetID management will now use the UCSB Identity Manager rather than the former U-Mail process for UCSBnetID management.
Students will now have to activate their U-Mail account as a separate process, using the new U-Mail Account Activation service.
Forgotten UCSBnetIDs and passwords may now be reset using the UCSB Identity Manager. The former U-Reset process to handle this function has been retired.
The online directory search service at http://directory.ucsb.edu/ has been retired and replaced with a new People Finder service.
Prior to using our next-generation services, faculty and staff will first need to Migrate their Identity.
