IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations

IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations


IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations is specifically designed for technical individuals who have completed IdentityNow Essentials training and desire more advanced knowledge of IdentityNow configuration activities. Topics include REST API calls, transforms, event triggers and common troubleshooting activities used during advanced configuration efforts.


Topics are covered through:

  • instructor-led presentations
  • class discussions
  • product demonstrations
  • detailed, hands-on exercises using a live IdentityNow tenant for each student

IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations is led by our highly experienced SailPoint team and can be delivered remotely or in person at SailPoint facilities around the globe or at your site.  

IdentityNow Training – Special Consideration

If you took the course IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Essentials, you will be better served by taking the IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Advanced training rather than this class. This ensures that you don't miss content that was re-organized in the current update of our IdentityNow training curriculum.

IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Essentials was replaced by IdentityNow Essentials, and IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Advanced was replaced by IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configuration. Administration content that was included in IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Advanced was moved to IdentityNow Essentials. With the shift of all standard administration content to IdentityNow Essentials, IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations does not target administrators, and instead focuses on technical implementers.

The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I nearly fell behind on day 2 due to FIOS failure and my need to relocate to a Starbucks. She went the extra mile to help me catch up with the practical exercises in the remaining time, with a looming vacation following the course.
