IdentityIQ Business Administration: Roles v8.0 - ELEARNING


IdentityIQ roles help businesses simplify their compliance and provisioning processes for their line-of-business users. This course teaches students how to configure and maintain a role model in IdentityIQ. Students begin the course by learning about the benefits of roles and how they fit into the IdentityIQ data model.

The audience for this course includes Business Analysts and others tasked with defining and maintaining roles. Technical Implementers and System Administrators who need a more detailed understanding of roles will also benefit.


Students will utilize IdentityIQ’s role mining capabilities to define roles. Students will create roles using the standard two-tier role model, and then they'll learn how to extend the default model. Students then learn the methods for associating roles to identities.

Additionally, students will learn about IdentityIQ features that support role administration, including role certifications, impact analysis, and versioning. The course also includes tips for managing role projects and changes to role definitions.

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

  • Describe the benefits of using a role model to manage access
  • Describe the default IdentityIQ role types and their general purpose
  • Define the difference between assigned and detected roles
  • Use role mining tools in IdentityIQ to create Business and IT Roles
  • Define relationships between roles
  • Update a role definition and propagate changes
  • Describe the impact analysis and role versioning features of IdentityIQ
