Leaving UZH (LCM)

Introduction: Life Cycle Management

Life Cycle Management deals with the life cycle of a user or a function in Identity Manager. In the case of a regular employment, an automatism is usually triggered 30 days before the first working day, which subsequently creates the person in Identity Manager and opens the accounts. When a user leaves, all user accounts are deactivated (set inactive) after 7 days and deleted after 30 days. Manually created persons have a lifetime of 6 months, after which the IT manager has to renew to ensure that the user still has access. If the lifetime of the manual person is not extended, the user will receive an e-mail for information as with the automatic person and the account will be deleted after 30 days.

What happens after leaving UZH?

If an employee is no longer employed or a student is exmatriculated, Life Cycle Management is activated. The person receives an e-mail informing him or her that the LCM process has been started. If he or she does nothing, all accounts are deactivated. If a person continues to work at an institute or central service regardless of their enrolment or employment, they must be manually managed again if access is not to be lost. To do this, the person must contact the IT manager of the institute.

What are the time limits of the LCM after leaving the UZH?

Students will receive an email 4 months after exmatriculation and employees will receive an email at the end of their employment informing them that all accounts including their email account will be deactivated after 7 days.

Any forwarding and absence notifications will no longer function after deactivation, nor will access to email data be possible. 30 days after deactivation, accounts and their data will be permanently deleted.

Before the deletion, the IT managers of the institutes can manually reactivate or extend the person in ISIM.
