The training is priced from $ 3000.00 USD per participant


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 Rapid Setup, 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.

Note: This course does not teach Accelerator Pack. If your IdentityIQ installation uses Accelerator Pack, we recommend that you take IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials v8.0. The 8.0 instance is available as self-paced elearning, and instructor-led training. (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)

Additional Notes:

What's the difference between this class and the IdentityIQ Implementation: Essentials v8.0 instance of the class?

There are two primary differences. 

  1. This course is built on IdentityIQ 8.1 patch 1. This is an important distinction, as a new configuration aid, Rapid Setup, will be released with patch 1.
  2. Rapid Setup replaces Accelerator Pack (the older style configuration aid) in this class.  

Note: If your IdentityIQ installation uses Accelerator Pack, we recommend that you take IdentityIQ Implementation: Essentials v8.0. The 8.0 instance is available as self-paced elearning, and as instructor-led training.
