Current Status

  • OpenRegistry is still very much in development.
  • The data model is well developed.
  • The service layer can perform most of the basic CRUD tasks
  • Matching architecture is in place but requires algorithm development
  • The REST interface is functional for many basic tasks
  • The User Interface is still in early development

Core Functionality

  • Interfaces for web, batch, and real-time data transfer
  • Identity data store
  • Identity reconciliation from multiple systems of record
  • Identifier assignment for new, unique individuals

Additional Functionality

  • Data beyond Persons: Groups, Courses, Credentials, Accounts
  • Business Rule based data transformations

More than just a Registry, some periphery too

  • Directory Builder
  • Provisioning and Deprovisioning

Why OpenRegistry?

  • "Off the shelf" solutions usually end up requiring significant customizations and integration work and/or solve only a portion of an institution's needs
  • Lots of institutions still rolling their own
  • Combined institutional efforts better leverage scant resources and allow for learning from others' experience (eg: Sakai, uPortal, CAS, Shibboleth, Kuali)
  • OpenRegistry is tailored to the needs of higher ed
