    Unhappy Sims.NET User Provisioning using ADPS and SLG

    HI!

    We currently use Sims.NET and SLG and the AD provisioning service to provision users when created with Sims.NET are created within our AD. We have temporary users for example PGCE and need to create them an AD user account but is reliant on them being a staff member (I have been told).

    Is there a way we can add PGCE students to allow provisioning to work without them being employed by the school.

    I hope the above makes sense!!

    Why can't they not be employed by the school? Can't see how it's any different to parents/pupils/service accounts blahblah who get provisioned for logins etc without being employed.

    Bit confused,

    Our PGCEs get their own accounts etc, so unless there's a specific reason I can't see what reason they'd have said that Unless I'm missing something obvious.

    Thanks,

    Do you use Sims Learning Gateway that has AD provisioning enabled?

    AFAIK if you want them to be provisioned via SIMS, you will need to have an Employment Start date and if you want them to be a teacher you will need to tick Teaching Staff. I could be wrong but I dont see a problem with that, and if its the census you're worried about, you can just exclude.

    Thanks all! I have had a response from Capita:

    You can add them to Personnel. No need to give them any contract, they just need a service term (and choose a best fit role when adding the term). Also untick the 'Eligible for SWR'. They are then available to be provisioned. If you tick teacher, they will see the staff space in SLG. They shouldn't come through to manage classroom staff and aren't visible by cover.

    Just about to give it a go!

    Thanks all!
