Campus Announcement of New Security Management

November 9, 2018

To: GLDSS Secondary Security Users

You are receiving this notification due to having a GLDSS Secondary Security role. This role has allowed you to access and view GL-related summary and transaction level reports.

Accounting & Financial Reporting (AFR) and Finance & Business Information Services (FBIS) are pleased to announce the implementation of a new security model for AFR reporting and transactional applications.  The new security model, which resides within the redesigned Financial Systems Tool (FST) in Self Service will go live on Tuesday, November 13th

Beginning November 13th, the following changes will take place:

Financial Systems Tools (FST), available in Self Service – Administration – Data Access, is now a central repository to request access to AFR applications and view security information.

  • Campus users’ access to applications whose security is handled in FST can view their own security profile in FST.
  • Separate access request forms must still be submitted for applications that require it. Either the person needing access to an application can submit a workflow request form for themselves or someone else can initiate the request on their behalf (E.g. a supervisor).

To assist you with this change, a FST Campus User Manual has been published.

Please send questions to AFR-ElecFinTrans@uiowa.edu and include a subject line of “FSM”.

Thanks,

Accounting & Financial Reporting
