See below for the details – basically an old nexus security group called IDM-Student will be removed from Nexus. It was replaced by  IdM-SA-Student. This will have minimal impact as the group has not been updated since 2008. The majority of the members in the group are alumni who are long gone. However there are test accounts/others in the group that may be impacted by the change.
For example it may have been used in some SharePoint sites to allow student/alumni access to some general data.

Subject: [WatIAM-Administrators] Deletion of NEXUS Security Group 'IdM-student'

Hi all,

In the process of an account audit, I stumbled-on a NEXUS security group named ‘IdM-student’.  This group does not appear to have been maintained in over 5 years and membership is currently meaningless.

WatIAM maintains the NEXUS security group ‘IdM-SA-student’ to represent current students.

This is just an advisory that I will be arranging for the deletion of the deprecated group ‘IdM-student’ sometime in the next week or so.
