Identity Mapping

Identity mappingĀ  means to map the values to SailPoint identity attributes. SailPoint IIQ provides some attributes out of the box. we can also create as many as custom attributes and can map values to these attributes.

Mapping means we configure or set from where values will be set into these identity attributes.

There are by default so many attributes are present in SailPoint IIQ like firstname, lastname, email etc. So, In Identity mapping we configure the source from where the values will be assigned to these attributes.

Let’s see how we can do Identity mapping in SailPoint

First of all, go to your SailPoint UI -> Global setting
