All of these forms are within the Registrar tab of the SIS Data Maintenance application, and Authorization is done through the MIT Roles Service. Each of these forms has standard information maintained for fields CREATE_BY, CREATE_DATE, MODIFY_BY, and MODIFY_DATE (note: these will not be listed below per form, to avoid repetition).

As of Feb 2019, there are four config values being managed in this table:
• mitsisBackfillAllowedUptoYear – Academic year that determines the upper bound to backfill MITSIS tables
• cisBackfillAllowedUptoYear – Academic year that determines the upper bound to backfill CIS tables
• cisBackfillAllowedFromYear – Academic year that determines the lower bound to backfill CIS tables

|configCode||Code for the applicable value, required, readonly, VARCHAR2(200).|
|configValue||Selected from edu.mit.mitsis.registrar.AcademicYear ( table: SATURN.STVACYR).|

A guide for setting up a developer environment is under the OFRP project at Environment Setup -SDM
Warning: Due to the passage of time, and the reliance of the currently used (obsolete) Grails 2 framework, expect to encounter hurdles in setup.
This is not a complete description of changed SDM functionality since OFRP.
Neither this document nor the OFRP notes include all information about SDM, some interim modifications were made
so that non-Grails forms such as SHASTMIN also can be launched within the application.
Authorization is handled through the MIT Roles service.
More authorization details are at Subject Management Authorizations
(This is routine for managing forms)
Domain class for lookups against table SATURN.STVRE_CRSE
Domain class for lookups against table SFPMGR.XREG_VV_MAST_SUBJ_UPD_RULE

Request the DBA's grant insert/delete/select permissions for any added tables to DS_MIT_SDM account via ADMIN_SDM role
You will need to add an entry for any new form to the SDM_ORACLE_FORMS_CTL table
