Completed project: Online Campus Directory

Primary UITS contact: Kaye Davidson, TC Bradley

Completed: September 4, 2009

Description: The Online Campus Directory project will deliver alpha and departmental directory information for all campuses via a directory application on IMM servers.

Outcome: The project will leverage the MIIS data feed already being consumed by Telephony Systems, so no additional data feed from the central identity services will be necessary. The project will also:

  • Register a new DNS name for the service phonebook.iu.edu to provide the directory application from IMM servers.
  • Provide directory information access via Web Service data that can be consumed by other applications and units, as necessary.
  • Filter IUPUI and IUPU Columbus faculty and staff entries by telephone number exchanges to differentiate them for their IUPUI colleagues in the listings.
  • Maintain IPFW faculty and staff entries in IMM data sources, via data submitted by that campus, and integrate entries into the IMM data sources alongside the other campus information.
  • Incorporate Active Directory contact information from non-IU entities via a separate process, and store the information in IMM data sources alongside all other entries.
