Connector PowerSchool

PowerSchool is a leading education IT solutions provider backed by 20 years of innovative experience. From creating the first web-based Student Information System to industry-changing user interfaces and mobile apps, PowerSchool’s unifying platforms give K12 school districts the capability to manage their entire IT ecosystem. With PowerSchool, districts can efficiently manage HR and student administrative tasks, instructional and classroom needs, state reporting, finances, and more.

PowerSchool’s K12 education technology solutions support over 45 million students across 80 countries with open-standards-based, configurable, and adaptive software.

HelloID’s connector allows your school district to leverage your PowerSchool SIS data for students and staff to achieve automated provisioning and identity management. HelloID provides an attribute mapper to sync with PowerSchool’s source data. The attribute mapper’s configuration links PowerSchool’s fields and variables to HelloID.

HelloID leverages the synced data from PowerSchool to execute automated user account lifecycle processes and self-service.

Onboarding, Provisioning, & Ongoing Management

HelloID detects changes in PowerSchool via the connector. Detected changes trigger processes that update users and their access to connected IT resources according to your configurations. Processes are automatic, consistent, and logged—reclaiming significant IT staff bandwidth.

For new students and staff entered into PowerSchool’s SIS, HelloID automatically provisions accounts, group memberships, and permissions. HelloID processes changes made to existing users to ensure everything remains up-to-date. When changes in PowerSchool’s data indicate that a student or staff member has departed the district, HelloID swiftly deactivates accounts and revokes access.

Driven by PowerSchool’s SIS data for every user, automated attribute-based access control has never been as quick or easy.

Service Automation for User Self-Service

Outside of standard provisioning configurations, users may access HelloID’s Service Automation module to request access to additional resources from their dashboard. If approved by the configured “Product Owner,” HelloID processes all changes and provisioning needs.

With HelloID connected to PowerSchool’s SIS, “Product Owners” may be assigned based on their synced attributes. Examples of these attributes include administrative roles or teaching and class assignments.
