MCommunity on the way, UMOD being phased out
Good news from MCommunity via Katarina Thomas, the project manager.
We are working on an LDAP interface to MCommunity that will provide read (and, for certain attributes, write) access to this data. We are targeting release of this interface for the start of Winter Term 2009. At that time, we also plan to replace the current web interface to UMOD with a new web interface to MCommunity.
The team is asking developers to hold off on UMOD directory,
We encourage units that are planning any future services with dependencies on the directory to plan on data lookups either to MCommunity via the LDAP interface or to the HR PeopleSoft table
UMOD is to be phased out by Summer 2009.
