IdentityIQ Business Administration: Policy v8.0 - ELEARNING


IdentityIQ Policies are used for audit, legal, and privacy compliance, as well as for alignment to business standards. This course teaches students how to configure IdentityIQ Policies and monitor policy violations.

The audience for this course includes Compliance Officers, Business Analysts, Technical implementers, System Administrators, or anyone with a role in IT or Security who need a more detailed understanding of IdentityIQ Policy will also benefit.



Students begin the course by learning how policy is used to flag or disallow unwanted access conditions. Then, students learn how to configure each of the 7 policy types. The introduction to each policy type lesson includes an overview of the purpose for that policy type, and the kind of data available for defining the policy.

Students are provided hands-on practice with the following types of policies: Role SOD, Entitlement SOD, Account, and Advanced.

By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  • List the 7 IdentityIQ policy types
  • Select, configure, and test the appropriate policy to meet a specific business need
  • Evaluate the response options for policy violations including allow for a specified time, revoke access, or certify user access
  • Describe the IdentityIQ process for identitfying users who are violating policies
  • Configure several policy types in an IdentityIQ virtual environment
  • Use Advanced Analytics to create populations of users for creating Advanced Policies
  • Configure a policy violation to trigger a workflow
