IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials v8.0 - CLASSROOM

IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials v8.0 - CLASSROOM


The IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials course is designed for SailPoint customers and partners who will be implementing IdentityIQ, and for system administrators of production IdentityIQ instances. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to implement and configure common IdentityIQ use cases and to support a standard implementation of IdentityIQ. Using Accelerator Pack, students learn best practices for onboarding and configuring application interactions (for example joiner/mover/leaver, and access requests). Students will also be able to describe, configure and administer the standard ongoing processes to load and maintain the IdentityIQ data, and list and use the tools available for monitoring and troubleshooting the system.

IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials is led by our highly experienced training team and takes place at SailPoint facilities around the globe, or can be brought to your site.

Additional Notes

What's the difference between this class and previous versions of IdentityIQ Implementation: Essentials classes?

This course is a complete rewrite to accomodate:

  • New audience. This course still targets the implementation team (technical staff, business administrators, project managers, etc.) and now also targets system administrators -- those folks who monitor and support the production system.
  • Accelerator Pack. Accelerator Pack provides many additional "out of the box" features that significantly simplify configuration and reduce time to go-live. 

Note that to accommodate new content, a lot of content has been rearranged and moved out of this course. For example, this course now briefly introduces certifications, roles, and policy and how they work within the system, and leverages rules and workflows throughout, but detailed configuration and creation for these topics is covered in separate courses.

I really enjoyed this class. I'm a novice when it comes to IAM, let alone Sailpoint. I enjoyed the presentations as well as the labs. I feel like I gained a better understanding on not only the product, but IAM as a whole.
