Role-based security restricts access to resources to only those users who have been granted a particular security role. A security role is a set of rights associated with access to different functions in the system.

This toolkit is designed for those who serve as Department Security Administrators (DSAs) and Security Role Approvers. Refer to this information when managing requests to grant or remove access to administrative computer applications, when approving or denying requests for specific security roles, or when managing conflicting security role requests.

You may notice the navigation in myUFL is different than what is shown in these training resources.  Rest assured, these changes are primarily look and feel differences. All policies and procedures discussed in these materials are accurate and up to date. Training materials will be updated to reflect the new look and menu of myUFL.
