Dear Entity Administrator,
This is your biweekly update on all things ADEConnect. As a reminder, we will now send just 2 emails each month
informing you of the changes being made within ADEConnect. As in this email, rather than provide the details in email form, we will provide links to update documents. You will also always be able to find the indicated documents and past issues of the update on the ADEConnect web page
in the News and Notifications section.
Important: AzEDS Identity Replacing SAIS ID Search
The SAIS ID Search
application in Common Logon will be deactivated on August 31, 2015. Beginning immediately, please use the AzEDS Identity
application in ADEConnect instead.
The most important difference between the two applications is this: where SAIS ID Search could only return an exact match, AzEDS Identity searches are able to return both close and perfect matches.
AzEDS Identity then allows you to differentiate potential matches using a "More Info" feature, which shows details such as 'responsible part', 'aliases', and 'school association'. The return of potential matches also catches student records with misspellings and helps identify duplicate entries.
Guides on using the AzEDS Identity application and the necessary roles are available at the links below:
