Banner Users Testing: March 6th thru 24th

The Enterprise Applications team in collaboration with all Banner module data owners have been diligently working for the past year in re-engineering our Banner security and end-user access.  The past four months have been dedicated to reviewing our new security architecture with Ellucian Banner module experts. This security assessment process has allowed us to take a deep dive into our current security classes and put in place a security design that will meet the operational needs of our current organizational structure while ensuring our student and financial data is safe and well-guarded. Each Banner module was thoroughly reviewed and all forms associated with your departmental tasks were assessed to ensure the new design is meeting Ellucian Banner security guidelines and best practices.

 After successful internal testing, we are ready to engage the UIW Banner user community in end user acceptance testing.  It is important that you participate in this testing phase so that you can ensure that you have the necessary access to perform your job duties. The Enterprise Applications Analysts will be available to facilitate your testing and remedy and/or document any issues you may encounter.

 We are scheduled to go live with these security changes on April 3, 2017 so your feedback from these testing sessions will help us minimize potential disruptions to your operations.

 Testing will begin on Monday, March 6 and run until Friday, March 24 in AD 431. Please use the Sign-Up Sheet link to reserve a timeslot for testing your access (Reservation is required as limited space is available). You will receive a meeting invite once confirmed.

 Please bring test plans (if applicable) and/or a list of Banner forms used to perform your daily tasks.
