Rule is an XML object with fully programmable java-based implementation hooks (Bean Shell). Rules can capture pieces of business-logic.SailPointIdentityIQ is very much Rule-Driven, and thus very flexible.
Rules can reference other Rules! Helpful with creating Rule Libraries.
Rule Libraries are collections of methods that have been grouped together and stored in IdentityIQ as a Rule object. They contain a set of related but unconnected methods that can be invoked directly by workflow steps or other rules.
Batch Requests enable you to generate specific types of access requests for more than one user at a time. The required data is gathered from a prepared comma-delimited file for each request type. The batch files require comma-delimited data that represents the individual requests. In most cases the native identity or identity name can be used to specify the request target.
