ForgeRock Identity Governance Workshop
This expert-led workshop leads students through how to configure and use Access Request to enable end users to request access to various entitlements, configure and use Access Review to create certification campaigns that certify user and role access, and configure and use Identity Reporting to create reports for auditing purposes.
The final chapter covers installing the new ForgeRock Identity Governance software available for existing ForgeRock® Identity Management (IDM) deployments. Students install the software within a given IDM deployment, and then learn how to seed governance data for development purposes.
Note: Revision A of this course is built on version 1.0 of Access Request, 2.6 of Access Review, and 1.1 of Identity Reporting.
This workshop is aimed at technical audiences who are responsible for deploying and utilizing the ForgeRock Identity Governance software within a IDM deployment.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
- Provide an overview of ForgeRock Identity Governance and related software in context with the ForgeRock Identity Platform™.
- Perform the administrative and end user tasks necessary to create and use the request access features of Access Request.
- Perform the Access Review administrative governance tasks necessary to create and run user and role certification campaigns.
- Use the Identity Reporting feature to upload the necessary SQL queries to generate reports, configure the connections to the target database sources, and create report schedules.
- Install the Access Review, Access Request, and Identity Reporting software modules on top of an existing IDM deployment to enable the services of ForgeRock Identity Governance.
Note that a handout is included with the workshop to help you stay on track and provide topics for discussion. The handout is not a workbook with detailed, step-by-step instructions.
The following are the prerequisites for successfully completing this course:
- Completion of the ForgeRock® Identity Management (IDM) Core Concepts course.
- Basic knowledge of IDM managed objects, the related schemas, connectors to external resources, and synchronization mappings help in understanding the identity governance-related administrator tasks.
- Knowledge of LDAP and LDAP groups would also be helpful.
