The main goal was to decide whether to request development of code that would programmatically enable Permissions module to identify users by name/NetID etc rather than having to look up users from the Users module to get the UUID to pass back to Permissions.

For those writing their own code to attach permissions to users in a batch way, by users’ 15-digit UUID - whereas it's far more convenient to identify people by NetID etc - more intuitive and still unique. Should we advocate for having FOLIO developers implement a bridge allowing us to look up a user (or code up a user) programmatically by the name or user-friendly IDs we know, rather than having to search for their 15-digit UUIDs? Maura has been writing custom code to assign permissions to users, and others on the project have as well. The code goes to the Users module to look up users by name, then pull the UUID to assign / list permissions etc. via the Permissions module. Should the Project code up something canonical for us in the Permissions module? Phil will follow up with Cornellians on other FOLIO SIGs to see if this is also being discussed elsewhere.
The general consensus was that it's worth pursuing this.
