SailPoint IdentityIQ’s ER Relationship Model

Traditionally, all developers deciphered a product, by understanding the Entity Relationship model of the product’s database schema. This approach was the quick and easiest way to understand any product.

 

A similar approach is tried in deciphering SailPoint IdentityIQ, an Identity Governance solution from Sailpoint. The presentation envisages to give the audience a thorough understanding of the product, not from the API perspective, but from a database model perspective.

 

Sailpoint’s Identity IQ has some key objects like Identity, Application, Bundle etc. There are many dependent objects. Most of the key objects are covered comprehensively in the presentation.
