SGNL - New Sailpoint SoR

  1. Enter the URL of your Sailpoint instance. This is the URL you use to login into your Sailpoint instance
  2. Choose the correct adapter that matches the Sailpoint System of Record Type
  3. Select OAuth2 Client Credentials as the Authentication Method and enter the Client ID and Secret copied in the previous section
  4. Update the Token URL for your Sailpoint instance - replace the scaffolding in curly braces with the URL you use to login into your Sailpoint instance
  5. Click Continue to save your Sailpoint IdentityNow SoR. You will be taken to the Sailpoint IdentityNow System of Record page.

SGNL - New Sailpoint SoR - Disabled Entities

  1. All entities and relationships are created as defined in the Sailpoint IdentityNow template. If applicable, you can edit an entity and modify any properties of the entity or the associated attributes. Hover over the entity on the screen above to see the Edit button as shown above.
  2. You can check the relationships created through the Relationships tab. However, relationships cannot be modified. You will need to delete an existing one, and create a new relationship.
  3. (If applicable) You can also create relationships joining entities and attributes in Sailpoint IdentityNow to entities and attributes in other Systems of Record configured in SGNL. For more information on relationships, please refer to our Relationships page.
  4. Note that synchronization is disabled by default when a new System of Record is created. You can choose to enable synchronization on Entities individually. Hover over the entity to see the Enable Sync button, and click on it.
  5. Repeat for all Entities you want to synchronize to SGNL. Finally, Enable synchronization for the System of Record.
  6. Go to SGNL Ingestion Logs to confirm that ingestion has started. Wait a few seconds for ingestion to complete.

SGNL - Logs

  1. After some time, SGNL should complete ingesting the data from your Sailpoint IdentityNow instance into the SGNL graph. The number of objects ingested per entity are displayed on the Sailpoint IdentityNow screen. You should then be able to construct policies based on your Sailpoint IdentityNow data and make access evaluation calls to SGNL.

SGNL - Ingested Entities 18. Once ingestion is complete and Sailpoint IdentityNow data is in the SGNL graph, you can use Data Lens to explore the SGNL graph.
