A Peek A Week: Campus Solutions
Peek #2: Security
"Security" in Oracle/PeopleSoft refers to the screens that an end-user is allowed to view and/or change. In Campus Solutions 8.9, security will be similar to the security setup that exists in ISIS and DSIS. Whatever screens you're accustomed to working with now, you'll likely see the equivalent screens in PeopleSoft.
Security ensures that the "average end-user" will have access to information about only those students who have an affiliation with the user's university of employment. However, each University of Maine System institution has designated a small number of employees who should be able to see information on any enrolled student. regardless of the student's university affiliation.
