SS&E Project Team Import


At the start of implementation, the project team users will be created in the SS&E instance--this will generally be around 5-10 users and should include IT team members such as SSO admin, data lead, email/calendar admin, LMS admin, etc. This allows the team members to have person records in SS&E, sign into the platform, access the SS&E Admin screens, and access the help center articles with instructions for implementation tasks.

These users will be given the Administrator role in SS&E. The roles can be changed at any time.

Person Data 

The Project Manager will share a template for the institution to fill in with the person data for the users, which will follow the format below. Id, firstName, and lastName are all required. Must have at least one of username or emailAddress. 

The Data Lead and Lead Admin should work together to fill this out, ensuring that the correct ID values are used.

Column Name Notes



IMPORTANT: This must be the same id as what will be used for all student/staff/faculty ids in the person imports for data integration.

Usually the database ID, SIS ID, student ID, employee ID, etc.

This should include leading 0s if applicable.


username This could be an email address or institutional username/user ID. Authentication/SSO uses either username or emailAddress. 
2 firstName The user's first name.
3 lastName The user's last name.
4 emailAddress Institutional email address. Authentication/SSO uses either username or primaryEmailAddress.
