2 Presenters Application Development and Data Administration - IET Peter Brinckerhoff, Banner Project Manager Jamila Sahakian, Banner System Architect Data Center and Client Services - IET Patrick Kelly, Data Resource Manager Office of the Vice Provost – IET Robert Ono, IT Security Coordinator Leng Thao, Programmer

3 Overview The new version of Banner will be implemented September 2-4, Todays presentation: Presents important technical changes that will impact third-party Banner users. Provides detailed information about steps departments will need to take prior to the Banner 7 upgrade.

4 Application Highlights Jamila Sahakian Banner user interface

5 Banner 6

6 Banner 7

7 Banner 7 Features New screen resolution size of 1024 by 768. Note: Most 15-inch and some 17-inch monitors do not support this large screen size. Banner 7 forms will be accessed via a Web browser. Windows-looking screens have navigational tabs and more legible text. Supported Web browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Mozilla Firefox 1.0 (Windows only) Safari 1.2 (Macintosh) Banner 7 will also require the download of a plug-in, JInitiator The plug-in is used to run Java applets on the clients computer.

8 Application Highlights Jamila Sahakian Banner user interface Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

9 The business logic from Banner forms, Web pages, and processes have been migrated into common procedures and stored in the database to create Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). APIs provide the following: Support for common create/retrieve/update/delete commands. Validation of business rules for the underlying entity or table. Can be used by internal Banner programs as well as by external systems integrating to Banner.

16 Technical Changes Jamila Sahakian Tables – new and dropped

17 Tables – New and Dropped Tables – NewChangeImpact SORLCUR SORLFOS Allow for the storage of an unlimited quantity of curriculum data. The SORLCUR table stores the curriculum data (i.e., program, level, college, campus, and degree), while the SORLFOS table stores the majors, minors, and concentrations. Each entry in both the SORLCUR and SORLFOS tables has a unique one-up sequence number. This sequence number allows each row to be distinct. In addition, the rows in the SORLFOS table are linked to their corresponding SORLCUR table entries by the SORLCUR rows sequence number. The module code (RECRUIT, ADMISSIONS, etc.) and key sequence number associated with each SORLFOS field of study row are derived from the SORLCUR row to which they are linked. Affected tables are: SRBRECR, SARADAP, SGBSTDN and SHRDGMR. The data will be back filled into these tables from SORLCUR and SORLFOS through the next version of Banner (Banner 8). See data map below. Tables – Dropped (Obsolete)ChangeImpact GORFLTRGraphic-related table removedNo impact GORGCATGraphic-related table removedNo impact GORGROPGraphic-related table removedNo impact GORGRPHGraphic-related table removedNo impact GORGSAVGraphic-related table removedNo impact GORSLCTGraphic-related table removedNo impact RERSTIDThe table was dropped and recreated for an enhancement as part of Common Origination and Disbursement project No impact RCTXMLDThe table was dropped and recreated for enhancements as part of Common Origination and Disbursement project. No impact TTBTAXITSATAXI form is obsolete.Remove any code references to this table

18 SunGard SCT will support the backfill of data to the current tables (SRARECR, SAAADMS, SGASTDN, SFAREGS, SHADEGR) for one year. Another update will be provided in approximately six months on the plans for fully implementing the new base tables for Concurrent Curricula (SORLCUR and SORLFOS). Concurrent Curricula Phase I – Functional Process Flow

25 Account Management Changes Patrick Kelly Cyber-safety compliance (http://security.ucdavis.edu)

26 Account Management Changes Patrick Kelly Cyber-safety compliance (http://security.ucdavis.edu) Types of accounts

27 Departmental or personal accounts Application accountsUser accounts (or Banner hard token account) Accounts connect to the Banner database with an assigned password via third-party tools. Departmental accounts are shared by users within the same department. Personal accounts are assigned to an individual. Accounts used in a locally developed application. Accounts connect to the Banner database with an assigned password via the server running the application. Example: MyUCDavis or Financial Aid's EFAN application. These are personal accounts for accessing Banner forms using a hard token (one-time) password. Types of Accounts

28 Account Management Changes Patrick Kelly Cyber-safety compliance (http://security.ucdavis.edu) Application accounts vs. user accounts Mothra entries

29 Account Management Changes Patrick Kelly Cyber-safety compliance (http://security.ucdavis.edu) Application accounts vs. user accounts Mothra entries Password management to be implemented in Banner 6

30 Account Management Changes Patrick Kelly Cyber-safety compliance (http://security.ucdavis.edu) Application accounts vs. user accounts Mothra entries Password management to be implemented in Banner 6 Changing your password

31 Account Management Changes Patrick Kelly Cyber-safety compliance (http://security.ucdavis.edu) Application accounts vs. user accounts Mothra entries Password management to be implemented in Banner 6 Changing your password Password rules

32 Reporting Tools Jamila Sahakian and Leng Thao Account consolidation

33 Account Changes Group 1: Departmental or personal accountsChange for Group 1 Accounts connect to the Banner database with an assigned password via third-party tools. Departmental accounts are shared by users within the same department. Personal accounts are assigned to an individual. These accounts will need to use a hard token if the third-party tool is RADIUS- compatible.If these account owners have a Banner hard token account, the third-party role will be consolidated with their Banner hard token account. The old third-party account will be locked. Group 2: Application accountsChange for Group 2 Accounts used in a locally developed application. Accounts connect to the Banner database with an assigned password via the server running the application. Example: MyUCDavis or Financial Aid's EFAN application. No change. These accounts will continue to have an assigned password. Password management will be applied. Group 3: Departmental or personal but no Banner hard token accountChange for Group 3 Accounts connect to the Banner database with an assigned password via third-party tools; however, the account owner does not have a Banner hard token account and therefore does not have a hard token. These accounts will need to obtain a hard token if the third-party tool is RADIUS- compatible. Otherwise an assigned password will remain in effect. Password management will be applied.

34 Reporting Tools Jamila Sahakian and Leng Thao Account consolidation Third-party tools, Advanced Security Option (ASO) and hard token

35 Reporting Tools Jamila Sahakian and Leng Thao Account consolidation Third-party tools, Advanced Security Option (ASO) and hard token Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver
