Out of the box Sailpoint’s IdentityIQ provides numerous workflows for provisioning, we can implement our custom workflows according to the necessity. Similarly, parallel and serial approvals are workflows used in an enterprise to manage the access of the user.
In the world of IAM, one thing every developer should remember is that “Right thing must be accessed by the Right user at a Right time“, from the above sentence we can say that an access must be rightfully distributed to the user.
