The training is priced from $ 3000.00 USD per participant


Upon successful completion of the IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials course, students should 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).

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.

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.

Note: This course teaches Accelerator Pack. If your installation uses Rapid Setup, we recommend that you take IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials v8.1. (Accelerator Pack and Rapid Setup are both configuration aids.)


In this course, students will:

  • Configure and administer IdentityIQ to support compliance and provisioning activity
  • Create application definitions that enable IdentityIQ to communicate (aggregate and provision) with corporate systems
  • Configure application business behaviors for provisioning activities  (for example: joiner/mover/leaver, approvers, and more)
  • Configure connectors (for example: delimited file, JDBC, LDAP, Active Directory)
  • Construct identity and account schemas that include custom attributes specific to the organization
  • Define parameters for classification of accounts and entitlements (locked, disabled, privileged, birthright) during aggregation 
  • Create identities in IdentityIQ
  • Load account and entitlement data into IdentityIQ and correlate accounts to the appropriate account owner
  • Monitor status of aggregation and provisioning actions
  • Organize personnel within IdentityIQ based on their IdentityIQ responsibilities and access needs
  • Evaluate data quality using IdentityIQ reporting and searching functionality
  • Describe the process for using IdentityIQ to support corporate electronic access policies
  • Describe the process for supporting IdentityIQ certification campaigns 
  • Describe the standard IdentityIQ two-tier role model 
  • Describe the difference between birthright and business roles
  • Configure, run, and monitor Lifecycle Events, including how to specify triggers, and designate provisioning actions for each event
  • Configure and monitor access requests – specify which access items are requestable and the appropriate approval processes
  • Describe the relationship between Quicklink Populations and Quicklinks
  • Explain how IdentityIQ supports requests for password reset
  • Identify and utilize tools available for onboarding, troubleshooting, and working with SailPoint Support (Administrator Console, Advanced Analytics, IdentityIQ Console, Debug pages)

This training is delivered as a self-paced eLearning course, made up of short presentation video segments and hands-on exercises. Students perform hands-on exercises in a Skytap Virtual Machine that contains all the course artifacts.

Additional Notes

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

This course is a complete rewrite to accommodate:

  • 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.
