Update: Banner Workflow updates have been completed. Access to Workflow applications has been restored.
Banner Workflow needs to be upgraded to a more secure version in order to be safely moved to the cloud environment. The upgrade will start next week on Tue 14 March 2023. We chose spring break with input from our functional team, thinking this would be the least disruptive time for the outage.
The system and all related applications will be down during this process, which is expected to take 2-3 days. These systems will be disabled to prevent accidental usage during the upgrade.
Related systems include:
- Curricular Action Workflow (CAW)
- Per Course BearPAF
- Course Credit Fee Waiver
- Drop With a Hold
- DG / DX Hold Removal
- GRADS Dashboard
After the system is upgraded, there will be some downtime while we ensure everything is operating properly.
Additional outages as well as an announcement that all is well and ready for regular business processing with these applications will be announced via this platform. If you subscribe to this blog, you will receive notifications about this process.
We sincerely apologize for the short notice and extended downtime for this system. We know all of our systems are important for the business of the university and we work hard to minimize downtime and maximize notice for outages such as these. In this case, we were just backed into a corner because of some security shortcomings and didn’t feel like we could wait any longer.
