July 7 update (original message below):
Identity Services is now receiving the student registration data from LionPATH and is pulling that information into the Central Person Registry and CACTUS, effectively closing the previously identified gap in student data.
Original message (from May 26)
Penn State is currently in a time of transition, moving from its legacy student system (ISIS) to the new student system (LionPATH). As previous LionPATH communications have stated, undergraduate enrollment information is being stored in ISIS through summer 2016, but any undergraduate enrollment information for fall 2016 (and beyond) will only be stored in LionPATH.
This transition has resulted in gaps in student data.
Any department or group that uses information from the Central Person Registry, Directory, CIDR, CACTUS, etc. for business decisions or existing business processes needs to be aware that they may not have access to complete data at this time.
Closing this data gap is a high priority for the technical team of Identity Services (IdS), partnering closely with the technical team of LionPATH.
The solution entails IdS being sent the student registration data, which currently only exists in LionPATH, and then pulling that information into the Central Person Registry and CACTUS to accurately identify currently enrolled students for the summer and fall (and beyond). IdS expects to begin to receive that data feed from LionPATH starting on May 27.
We anticipate that fully enacting a solution to this data gap will take a minimum of three weeks, and updates will be provided as needed.
