Connector Skyward

Skyward SIS is a student information system developed to better support K12 distract staff, from administrators and IT to teachers, students, and parents. Skyward’s management suite encompasses modules for administration, student services, classroom tools, and family engagement. Since launching their first product in 1981, Skyward has remained committed to helping deliver a better education experience for all users.

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

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

Onboarding, Provisioning, & Ongoing Management

HelloID detects changes in Skyward SIS 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 Skyward, 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 Skyward’s data indicate that a student or staff member has departed the district, HelloID swiftly deactivates accounts and revokes access.

Driven by Skyward’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 Skyward, “Product Owners” may be assigned based on their synced attributes. Examples of these attributes include administrative roles or teaching and class assignments.
