Update: Oct 2019. IdentityNow Roles can be easily managed using the SailPoint IdentityNow PowerShell Module.
Recently I wrote this post about Retrieving, Creating, and Managing SailPoint IdentityNow Roles using PowerShell.
Last week SailPoint enhanced Roles with the ability to request them. The details are located on Compass here.
I had a number of Roles that we wanted to make requestable, so rather than opening each and using the Portal UI to enable them, I did it via the API using PowerShell.
As per my other Roles post, a JWT Bearer Token is required to leverage the Roles API’s. That is still the same. I covered how to obtain a JWT Bearer Token specifically for interacting with these API’s in this post here. I’m not going to cover that here so read that post to get up to speed with that process.
Enabling Roles to be Requestable
The following script queries to return all Roles, iterates through them to make them requestable. Update;
- Line 2 for your IdentityNow Org Nam
- after Line 9 you can refine the roles you wish to make requestable
Using the API we can quickly enable existing IdentityNow roles to be requestable. When creating new Roles we can add in the attribute Requestable with the value True if we want them to be requestable.
