eduPersonPrimaryAffiliation

eduPersonPrimaryAffiliation specifies the person's PRIMARY relationship to the institution in broad categories such as student, faculty, staff, alum, etc. (See controlled vocabulary).

Permissible values

eduPersonPrimaryAffiliation is a single-valued string attribute. The UCLA identity provider asserts the following possible values within this attribute:

faculty
staff
employee
student
member
affiliate

Note: In addition to the above values, the eduPerson object class does define 2 additional values:

alum
library-walk-in

Remark

This attribute is appropriate if the person carries at least one of the defined eduPersonAffiliation values. For example, if a person is a full-time student and a part-time staff, UCLA asserts that person's primary affiliation as "student". In addition, the more specific of the values will be used. For example, a faculty member will be expressed as "faculty" rather than "employee" in this attribute.

eduPersonAffiliation is a calculated attribute based on data in the Enterprise Directory.

to do: explain data calculation logic.

Release Policy

UCLA does not by default release this attribute to service providers. Each service provider is required to submit a request for data access and is subject to data privacy review from campus data stewards.
