Participation Guidelines

(The Quick Version)

The goal of the SailPoint Developer Community is to provide developers with the resources they need in order to be more successful. SailPoint strives to create a helpful, friendly, constructive, and safe environment where all are welcome to learn, discuss, share, and contribute. The SailPoint Developer Community provides a harassment-free community experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and/or imagery are not appropriate for any community activities, including, but not limited to, participation in online forums, talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Community participants violating these rules may be warned, sanctioned or expelled from community/forum/event at the discretion of the moderator/organizer/host.

1. Overview

The SailPoint Community Participation Guidelines aim to foster a community where all people should feel safe to participate, regardless of sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, mental health, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, race, age, nationality, and political or religious affiliation. These guidelines exist to enable diverse individuals and groups to interact and collaborate to mutual advantage. This document outlines both expected and prohibited behavior.

2. Purpose

The SailPoint Developer Community aims to be inclusive to developers and contributors with varied and diverse backgrounds. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We invite all those who participate in the SailPoint Developer Community to share responsibility in helping us create safe and positive experiences for everyone present.

3. Expected Behavior

The following behaviors are expected and requested of all community members:
• Please be kind and courteous. There’s no need to be mean or rude.

• Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.
• Attempt collaboration before conflict.
• Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.
• Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert community leaders if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this Code of Conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.
• Remember that community event venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.
• Share praise and recognition; If you see someone who is making an extra effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encourages all participants to contribute to the fullest extent, we want to know.

The following behaviors are considered harassment and are unacceptable within our community:
• Violence, threats of violence or violent language directed against another person.

• Posting or threatening to post other people’s personally identifying information (“doxing”).
• Personal insults, particularly those related to gender, sexual orientation, body type, race, religion, or disability.
• Inappropriate photography or recording.
• Inappropriate physical contact. You should have someone’s consent before touching them.
• Unwelcome sexual attention. This includes sexualized comments or jokes; inappropriate touching, groping, and unwelcomed sexual advances.
• Deliberate intimidation, stalking or following (online or in person).
• Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
• Sustained disruption of community events, including talks and presentations.
• Likewise, any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other attention-stealing behavior is not welcome.

5. Weapons Policy

No weapons will be allowed at SailPoint Developer events, community spaces, or in other spaces covered by the scope of this Code of Conduct. Weapons include but are not limited to guns, explosives (including fireworks), and large knives such as those used for hunting or display, as well as any other item used for the purpose of causing injury or harm to others. Anyone seen in possession of one of these items will be asked to leave immediately and will only be allowed to return without the weapon. Community members are further expected to comply with all state and local laws on this matter.

6. Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including sponsors and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If a community member engages in unacceptable behavior, the community organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event).

7. Reporting Guidelines

If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a community organizer as soon as possible by emailing [email protected]. Content flagged as inappropriate in the developer community forum will notify the moderation team for additional review and, if necessary, action.

Additionally, community moderators are available to help community members engage with local law enforcement or to otherwise help those experiencing unacceptable behavior feel safe. In the context of in-person events, organizers will also provide safe escorts as desired by the person experiencing distress.

8. Addressing Grievances

If you feel you have been falsely or unfairly accused of violating this Code of Conduct, you should notify [email protected] with a concise description of your grievance. Your grievance will be handled as quickly as possible and a response will be emailed to you by the moderation and review team.

9. Scope

We expect all community participants (contributors, paid or otherwise; sponsors; and other guests) to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues–online and in-person–as well as in all one-on-one communications pertaining to community business.
This code of conduct and its related procedures also applies to unacceptable behavior occurring outside the scope of community activities when such behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of community members.

10. Contact info

If you have any questions, concerns or issues that you wish to report, please email [email protected]. Emails sent to this address will go directly to the community team here at SailPoint and issues will be reviewed and responded to as quickly as possible.
