Identity Registry Affiliations

Specific units within the University will be authorized to associate an individual with a particular Affiliation (How/Why is this person part of the UF community).  The UF Identity Registry is the authoritative data source for the affiliation data.  The registry aggregates data from applications of record such as HR, Student Records etc.  as well as those affiliations associated manually by identity coordinators to provide the authoritative complete picture of this person at UF.  An individual’s affiliation(s) make a material difference in services, entitlements or responsibilities for both digital and non-digital service provisioning at UF.  Service providers use these data to determine eligibility in addition to other attributes. The following is presented in hope of fostering communication to guide decisions which will ultimately be reflected in service provisioning logic. Comments about these suggestions may be sent to the myUFL Suggestion Box, located in the portal by clicking on the “Suggestions” link in the top right-hand corner. The following Affiliation Types are presented in the prioritized Category order reflected in the preceding table (i.e., Faculty through Contact). Each affiliation contributes to the Level of Assurance calculation associated with this persons digital credential (GatorLink) and whether they qualify to apply for a GatorLink credential.  See the chart above in the Affiliations Reference section.
