Electronic PeopleSoft Administrative Security System (ePASS)
The ePASS (Electronic PeopleSoft Administrative Security System) is an electronic form within Northern Arizona University’s PeopleSoft LOUIE system that allows for paperless administrative security requests and security revocation.
An ePASS form is usually initiated by an NAU employee or affiliate requiring administrative access to one of NAU’s PeopleSoft systems (LOUIE, HCM, or PS Financials). An ePASS form can also be initiated by a supervisor (listed as employee’s reports to) or data steward on behalf of another user. After the ePASS is initiated it will be routed for the appropriate approvals, notifications will be sent at various points in the process and, when complete, security will be automatically updated within PeopleSoft.
Types of forms
Use to add administrative access to a PeopleSoft system (LOUIE, HCM or PS Financials)
Use to revoke access to a PeopleSoft system due to transfer, change in job duties or termination
