SailPoint IIQ Terminology : Stale Identities, Correlation

Stale Identities:

  • Identities that don't have any links (Eg:Application Accounts) associated with them are referred to as "Stale Identities".
  • They have no important references and are of no use to the system.
  • Hence, they can be deleted by going to SetUp --> Tasks --> Run Prune Identity Cubes Task.
  • These type of identities gets created when the uncorrelated accounts are correlated with the authoritative/trusted identities.

  • Finding the authoritative/trusted identity for an account is referred to as "Correlation".
  • There are two types of correlations available:
  1. Attribute Based Correlation: Correlating the accounts based on a specific attribute (Eg: Email, Username etc.)
  2. Condition Based Correlation: Correlating the accounts based on a specific condition.
