Manage LC Identity

These menus allow management of a user's LC identity. Select a menu to view its descriptive information.

View My Profile

Shows user information such as name, home directory, resource accounts, shell, groups, etc. Useful for answering the question: "Do I have an account on that machine?"

View Groups

Shows groups and their members based on the selection of network (unclassified or classified) and group name. Also identifies the group owner, affiliated organization, and authorizers. You do not have to be a member of a group to view the group information.

Delete LC Identity and Remove All Accounts

Delete your LC identity and remove all your accounts on both OCF and SCF. You also must specify the disposition of files in your home directory and storage directory (where file disposition can be to transfer ownership or to destroy). Form fields are described below.

Effective Date

Select Immediate to delete this LC username immediately, or select Other to identify a future date for deletion. Other is typically used when it is known that an that individual's LC username will no longer be required (e.g., after completion of a project or at the end of a temporary position as a summer student).

Request Is For

Requests are typically for yourself, but you may request a username deletion for another individual as their Project Leader, Line Management, or Computer Coordinator.

OUN

The OUN of the individual whose LC username is to be deleted.

Username

The LC username of the account to be deleted. Select the username from the pull-down menu.

Unclassified Instance and Classified Instance

Identify file disposition for each network instance.

  • Global Home Directory: Select Transfer Ownership to Another User if your home directory files are to be retained, or Destroy All if all of these files can be discarded.
  • Storage Ownership: Select Transfer Ownership to Another User if your storage-resource files are to be retained, Destroy All if all of these files can be discarded, or See Comments for disposition for detailed instructions on how to dispose of or retain these files.

User Comments

Provide any additional information that may assist in the processing of your request. All comments entered are maintained and visible for the duration of this request and are recorded within the audit logs of the IdM System upon approval or rejection of this request.

Submit (Button)

After you have completed your selections, select the Submit button to enter your request into the IdM System. You will immediately receive an email confirmation containing the details of your request. To abandon this request, simply select the Cancel button. Your request will be discarded and you will be returned to the IdM main menu.

Request a Special Purpose LC Username

You must choose this menu option if you do not have an LC username or if you need a second identity for testing or other needs. Note: If your OUN is 8 characters or fewer, your OUN will be your primary LC username. If your OUN is 9 characters or more, you can select an 8-character (or fewer) primary LC username. Form fields are described below.

Request Is For

Requests are typically for yourself, but you may request a username for another individual as their Project Leader, Line Management, or Computer Coordinator.

Request For OUN

If this request is for someone else, you must provide that person's OUN.

Account Type

LC users are permitted to have up to ten user names. These are registered as Account Types user1 through user10. The IdM System automatically selects the next available Account Type for the given OUN.
