How to Check a User's PeopleSoft Role

When requesting access for a new user, you may want the new user’s access to be very similar to the access of a current user. You are not able to use the online Federated Authorization Request form to automatically duplicate another user’s access for a new user. However, designated security contacts can quickly look up a user’s roles in PeopleSoft, and then use those roles as a reference as you complete the form.

To do so, complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to My Pitt ( and click the PeopleSoft Student Information task.
    Click the PeopleSoft Student Information System task.
  2. Click the PeopleTools link on left-hand side of the page, then click User Profiles under the Security folder.
    Click PeopleTools, then click user profiles.
  3. Click User Profiles again.
  4. Enter the username of the person you want to view next to “begins with,” then click Search.
    Enter usernam of the person you want to view
  5. Click the Roles tab. The individual’s first ten roles will display. If the individual has more than ten roles, click View All.
    Click the Roles tab.
  6. To download all of the roles in an easy to read and exportable format, click on the Download User Roles Table to Excel spreadsheet icon.
    Note: Rename the saved file or save the name of the file to include the username, since the filename output will not be specific to the user.
