The User Guide provides conceptual information about the NetIQ Identity Governance product. This book provides installation information and step-by-step guidance for administrative and user-oriented tasks.
This book provides information for a variety of users involved in collecting, reviewing, and updating identities in your environment:
Design a catalog of identities that can merge attributes from multiple sources of identity data, such as applications and LDAP directories. Help with the initial set up and configuration of the catalog, data sources, and identity mapping.
Create identity and application sources in the Identity Governance catalog that correlate with existing sources in the organization. Configure roles and security for Identity Governance. Help business administrators and application owners to create scheduled collections and reviews. Set up manual or automated fulfillment workflows.
Collect and publish identity and application data for review.
Review identity and application data to ensure that users have only the access that they need to accomplish their assigned functions.
Verify that changes to identities have been fulfilled and that users have only the access that they need.
The library provides the following information resources in addition to this guide:
Provides information specific to this release of the Identity Governance product, such as known issues.
Provides information about how to install and configure the Identity Manager Driver for NetIQ Identity Governance. The Identity Governance driver allows you to provision application-specific permission catalog data from Identity Governance to Identity Manager, giving you the ability to review and certify permission assignments using Identity Governance, as well as to request and provision these permissions using Identity Manager. The driver also can provision users in the Identity Vault for Identity Manager. For more information, see NetIQ Identity Manager Driver for Access Review Installation and Configuration Guide.

We are a global, enterprise software company, with a focus on the three persistent challenges in your environment: Change, complexity and risk—and how we can help you control them.
In fact, of all the challenges you face, these are perhaps the most prominent variables that deny you the control you need to securely measure, monitor, and manage your physical, virtual, and cloud computing environments.
We believe that providing as much control as possible to IT organizations is the only way to enable timelier and cost effective delivery of services. Persistent pressures like change and complexity will only continue to increase as organizations continue to change and the technologies needed to manage them become inherently more complex.
In order to provide reliable control, we first make sure we understand the real-world scenarios in which IT organizations like yours operate—day in and day out. That's the only way we can develop practical, intelligent IT solutions that successfully yield proven, measurable results. And that's so much more rewarding than simply selling software.
We place your success at the heart of how we do business. From product inception to deployment, we understand that you need IT solutions that work well and integrate seamlessly with your existing investments; you need ongoing support and training post-deployment; and you need someone that is truly easy to work with—for a change. Ultimately, when you succeed, we all succeed.
