Submit Name

This service is used to manage Student Name records in the PASI Core. This service can be used to:

  • Add a new Student Name,
  • Update an existing Student Name, or
  • Delete an existing Student Name.

To submit changes to the student’s legal name, refer to the Submit Identification Information service.

Prior to the IPASIService2017 endpoint, the service was called Submit Student Alias. With the implementation of Release 7.11 into Production on March 29, 2019, the services tied to the 2016 End Point (or earlier) will no longer be available.
For the IPASIService2017 endpoint, the service was called Submit Student Name.
From the IPASIService2018 endpoint and forward, the service is now called Submit Name.


The service can be accessed by systems with the Submit Student User role.

Validation Status Triggers

When a student name is successfully created, updated, or deleted, a Student Status Processor Trigger is created to trigger recalculation of the Validation Status for the Student.


The usage of this service is audited using Service Auditing including the auditing of Caller Information.

Service updates are audited by creating a Student Audit Event with an Audit Subject of “SubmitStudentAlias (Audit Subject)” and the Audited Values containing all the attributes provided to the service. The “A” action is used if a new name record is added. A “U” action is used if the already existing name is updated.

Response Information

A response to a Submit Name request identifies if the request was successfully applied. If not successful, the response identifies which validation rules failed.
