Identity Management

Identity Access Management is an administrative area that deals with identifying individuals and controlling access to resources. This is done by associating user rights and restrictions with the identity. This information is designed for use by the Identity Administrators and Coordinators who create and maintain accurate contact and demographic information for individuals affiliated with the University of Florida. Refer to this toolkit when creating unique identifiers (UFID), granting access credentials, or authorization to data and services.

You may notice the navigation in myUFL is different than what is shown in these training resources.  Rest assured, these changes are primarily look and feel differences. All policies and procedures discussed in these materials are accurate and up to date. Training materials will be updated to reflect the new look and menu of myUFL.
