PUID On-Line Processing Manual

  • Person Lookup

  • Authorization Administration - or, hwo to allow someone else to use the online PUID System

  • Daily Update and Suspense Processing

  • Handling Unusual Cases

    Each of these unusual cases starts with an essential similarity -- a person has a relationship to the University set up where it does not belong.

    Handling each case starts with an essential similarity also. The errant relationship must be "deleted" from where it is. This will create an entry in Suspense for this relationship.

    Then the Suspense entry is processed using normal Suspense processing to add the relationship to an existing person (merge), create a new PUID (split), or delete the Suspense entry (delete).

    • Merging - You need to merge when you find the same person has been set up with two PUIDs (or more, heaven forbid!), where relationships for a person were not identified as belonging to the same person when they were created. You will need to merge the relationships from two PUIDs into a single PUID.

    • Splitting - You need to split when when you find that relationships for two different people have been incorrectly identified as being for one person.

    • Deleting - You need to delete when you find the same person has been set up with two PUIDs (or more, heaven forbid!), and the relationship for this system ID is a duplicate and is being deleted from the Operational system.
