What you need to know about CUNYfirst Security Access

Guidelines, forms, instructions, workflow and all the information you need to request access to CUNYfirst

What is an ASL?
ASL stands for Application Security Liaison. This role has been established on all CUNY campuses for the purposes of processing CUNYfirst Access Request Forms. ASL do not approve or grant access but they are the central point of contact for application security within CUNYfirst. Those responsible for user enrollment, de-provisioning and approvers of roles & permission list assignment to profiles are know as Functional Liaisons or Access Approvers. They are the ones who must sign off on the forms besides managers, department heads, Business unit manager and in some cases the VP of Administrative Affairs.

What Forms Do I Need?
The form you need depends on the type of access your department head, manager or chair requires for your position and role within CUNYfirst. Since CUNYfirst is broken down into what are called pillars, depending on the area or pillar required, there is a form dedicated to that access. The main pillars in CUNYfirst are Campus Solutions, Human Capital Management and Financial Supply Chain. While there are other modules they generally will fall under one of these main pillars. The CUNY Central Security web site contains all the forms necessary for requesting access. We will provide a break down of each here with additional information on the York College work flow for filling out, signing and getting it into the CRM (Customer Relations Management) system for processing by the York Application Security Liaiasons (ASL's) after all the proper signatures are in place.
