IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations

IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations


Coming in Q3 - IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations is specifically designed for individuals who have been through 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

IdentityNow implementation and administration training is being transformed. In mid-July, IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Essentials will be replaced with IdentityNow Essentials, and IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Advanced will be replaced with IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations

Administration content that is currently included in IdentityNow Implementation and Administration: Advanced is being moved to IdentityNow Essentials. This new IdentityNow Essentials class will be increased to a 3-day class to accommodate the additional material. With the shift of all standard administration content to IdentityNow Essentials, IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations will not target administrators, and instead will focus on technical implementers.

IdentityNow administrative tasks branding, basic troubleshooting, basic implementation, and basic searching have been moved to IdentityNow Essentials. New content has been added to IdentityNow Implementation: Advanced Configurations to cover IdentityNow event triggers.


2 Days
