At Penn we have a subject source which has active Penn people.

Though it seems like apps need more than this (temp employees who still need
access, managers who need to gracefully transition away when they leave their
job, researchers who aren't at Penn anymore, but still need access to some
resources to work with colleagues).

How do other schools define your subject source for people at your
institution? Only actives? Everyone in your system even if they were
inactivated 10 years ago? Active people, and people who were recently

Im not sure what the pros and cons of these are. There was an extra security
benefit to inactives becoming unresolvable, but it seems like it is not
something that should be relied on. Also, it would be hard to find people if
there are hundreds more John Smiths in there... other than that, I don't see
a huge downside to opening up the subject source.
