Enterprise Directory


July 20, 2009

Dear UCR Faculty, Emeriti, Enterprise Directory Administrators, and Departmental Administrators / Managers,

As many of you already know, UCR's Enterprise Directory manages campus "electronic identities" commonly known as UCR NetIDs. Access to various campus electronic systems (including the wireless network, e-mail, the travel system, etc.) is enabled via UCR NetIDs and password.

In collaboration with the Academic Personnel Office and the Financial Systems Steering Committee (FSSC), Computing & Communications (C&C) is pleased to announce an enhancement to the Enterprise Directory relating to Emeritus/a faculty. This enhancement creates an automated link between the campus Payroll Personnel System (PPS) and the Enterprise Directory, and the upgrade will ensure all Emeritus/a faculty have complete access to campus electronic systems as if they were regularly employed (non-retired) faculty.

The upgrade will be placed into production on Tuesday, August 18. It is vitally important that all existing Emeritus/a faculty have an Emeritus/a Without Salary (WOS) appointment within the campus Payroll Personnel System by this date.

C&C has created a web site containing information / procedures relating to migrating existing Emeritus/a faculty to the new system (again, this must be completed by August 17 or access to campus systems will be inhibited). This web site (please visit also contains information on how new Emeritus/a faculty entries should be processed upon retirement. A brief overview of migrating existing Emeritus/a faculty to the new system is presented below.

Enterprise Directory Administrators should please e-mail input, questions, or concerns to Terri McDonald (retired). Edit 10-16: Azra Ayers at

Thank you for reading through this message and for your attention to this issue. UCR Emeritus/a faculty are active and vibrant participants in UCR's scholarly and intellectual communities, and C&C is therefore particularly pleased to announce the deployment of this important Enterprise Directory upgrade.

Overview - Migrating Existing Emeritus/a Faculty Entries


  1. Enterprise Directory Report. To assist Enterprise Directory Administrators with identifying current Emeritus/a faculty within the Enterprise Directory that require a WOS PPS entry, a new report has been created. Enterprise Directory Administrators should please select "Enterprise Directory Emeritus/a Entries" from the Enterprise Directory, General Options, Reports menu. This report will list all Emeritus/a faculty that currently exist within the Enterprise Directory that require a PPS WOS entry.
  2. PPS Entries Must be Created by August 17. Departments must complete the WOS PPS entries for all current Emeritus/a faculty by August 17th, 2009. If Emeritus/a faculty do not have an active PPS WOS appointment (using title codes 1132 or 3249) by 8/17/2009, access to campus e-mail and other UCR electronic application will be inhibited.
  3. Upgrade to Occur on Tuesday August 18, 2009. C&C will deploy the upgrade to the Enterprise Directory on August 18. Any PPS WOS entries containing title codes 1132 or 3249 will automatically update the Enterprise Directory and the Emeritus/a faculty will have the same access to campus email and systems as non-retired faculty.
