UNDERSTANDING YOUR CURRICULUM


The UCLA UCPath team is committed to implementing a security model that grants the appropriate level of visibility and access to each employee using UCPath.

UCPath will utilize the current ‘single sign-on’ framework via Shibboleth. UCLA Identity Management System will align the UCLA UID with the PeopleSoft Employee ID. All employees will be granted access to the UCPath Portal for employee self-service as part of cutover and new employees will automatically be granted access to the UCPath Portal.

Access in UCPath for Transaction roles will be granted in the Distributed Administrative Computing Security System (DACSS). Departmental Security Administrators (DSAs) will use DACSS to authorize what a user can do, and which departments a user can see (e.g., Department 123400).
