    • employeeRecord

    • employeeStatus

    • employeeTypeCode

    • fte

Draft Data Elements

Any data elements listed here should be thought of as candidates for implementation and, therefore, may experience significant changes before a final draft is reached.  There is no guarantee that a draft data element will be implemented unless specifically stated.  Comments, etc are welcomed and can be emailed to its-iam-help@lists.hawaii.edu.

  • no draft data elements at this time; check New Data Elements to see what might be en route to production

New Data Elements

New data elements that are destined for Production are initially added to the appropriate Test LDAP environments for integration work.  Once integration work has successfully concluded and the UH App Developer community sufficiently informed, the attributes will be promoted to the appropriate Production LDAP environments.

Data Classification

In the IAM data element dictionary, each data element's classification is provided.   The majority of the data elements are considered "restricted" level protected data.

For a complete presentation of the UH data classification levels, the following UH Data Governance resource is available:

The following table provides an overview and examples of UH's data classifications.
