Managed NETID User Attributes

Last updated: January 30, 2023
Audience: IT Staff / Technical

This document is intended for IT Professionals seeking to understand what NETID user attributes are centrally populated and more details about them.

Due to the limitations of this documentation platform, content for this topic is only available in a downloadable PDF file. When this platform supports wider tables, this content will be displayed natively.

It is possible to write to some of your own user NETID user attributes and you may also ask UW-IT to make changes on an exceptional basis (if you can provide a valid business need). In general, we don’t recommend this, and we don’t make any promises that attribute values won’t become a managed user attribute at some point in the future and therefore overwritten. However, the ability to write to some of these user attributes may enable functionality that is important to you that we don’t yet provide centrally via managed user attributes or via the NETID User Support mechanism.
