The Identity submenu group provides access to screens in order to establish and maintain user data and the associated roles and permissions in the Kuali Identity Management (KIM) system. This system handles user identification, permissions, and responsibilities for multiple Kuali applications, including KFS. KIM may also be used with non-Kuali applications.
KFS communicates with KIM to determine each user's permissions and workflow responsibilities. These permissions and responsibilities are defined by the user's role or roles in the system. Roles can be customized to handle permissions and responsibilities in a variety of ways based on your institution's needs.
