- Uniqnames & Accounts
There are different processes for getting a uniqname based on a person's relationship to the university.
- Your U-M Online Identity
Information such as name, address, and more is stored in various authoritative systems at U-M (for example, Wolverine Access) and fed to MCommunity. Individuals can provide additional information.
- Friend Accounts
These guest accounts allow people to log in to the U-M computing environment using their email address instead of a uniqname.
- Sponsor System
The Sponsor System allows authorized U-M staff members to create uniqnames and access to standard computing services for people for university affiliates who are not faculty, staff, or students.
- Active Directory Accounts
MCommunity data is used to provision and de-provision Active Directory UMROOT accounts through a real-time data feed from MCommunity.
- Identity Governance Tool for U-M
Identity Governance for U-M is an optional tool for strategically and proactively managing access to university digital and physical resources.
- Losing Access to Computing Services
MCommunity manages automated de-provisioning of access to the standard computing services when people leave the university. It also de-provisions access to some services when people transition from student to alumni or from employee to retiree.
