Hi Folks
I just joined this site. Couple of questions:
1- What’s the difference between this and Compass?
2- I have a question about an error I see in my IIQ logs. Which community is better for asking that?
3- Are there plans to have one search place for all the communities?

I can tell you this site seems to be a lot faster than Compass. Hopefully it will stay that way as more people join in.
Thanks.
Pasha

Hey @Pasha, I appreciate you asking these questions! I’ll do my best to answer them, but please ask some follow-up questions if needed.

1. What’s the difference between this forum and Compass?
As we started to see our extensibility efforts grow, we started to interview developers on our platform. What we found was that many developers expected to find everything they need when integrating in one place—admittedly, today, a lot of our content for developers is scattered around. The first thing we are working on is consolidating everything a developer needs into one place: developer.sailpoint.com. This means API specs, guides, docs, tools, client libraries (coming soon), forums, and more—developers should never have to venture outside of this site to find what they need. It is our goal to decrease a developers time-to-value as much as we can. Plain and simple.

These developers shared some other sentiments around Compass as well. They felt the platform that Compass is built upon was slow, difficult to search for and find things, difficult to post, and hard to filter out what they needed to focus on what they did.

Because of this, and because of my team’s sole commitment to our developer community, we decided to give developers their own forum, one dedicated to those who write code and are working with SailPoint technologies.

2. I have a question about an error I see in my IIQ logs. Which community is better for asking that?
If this is just a general question about your logs in IIQ, that is a perfect question for our support team. If the logs are related to code that you are writing to write your own custom integration with IIQ, I think this would be the perfect place to start.

3- Are there plans to have one search place for all the communities?
Yes, our Developer Community Manager and the Compass Community Manager are working closely together. Right now we’re just working on establishing ourselves, but we understand that there will be some technical users that overlap between writing code and also administering IIQ or IDN installations.

Thanks for prompt response. I’ll try to keep track of where I post my questions, for now.

BTW: Noticed the date slider on the right of the screen does not seem to match the date the reply was posted. For example, right now, your reply is showing up as 3/3 Jan 8 but posted “11m ago”

Thanks again.

It looks like their date slider may have some bugs in it, I’ll fill this out as a bug with their support team. My slider is showing the correct date. How odd.

@Pasha I appreciate your support so much for asking these questions early on and feel you will be very helpful with our new community going forward. As such, I’ve awarded you our first “New Member of the Month” badge! Who knows, maybe it will be worth more than Bitcoin one day :slight_smile:

Wow that was a fast fix for the slider thing. :+1:

Don’t retire just yet, my friend, I’m hoping to see you around in the future asking and answering more questions :slight_smile:

In @Pasha 's case, the month in question would be “Jan”. :stuck_out_tongue:
Thanks for posting, Pasha, and for sharing your feedback!

Hello!
I also just joined and must say I enjoy the user experience, feels much “snappier” and great to see MFA support for logins! Excited to see the community grow!

I was wondering if there are plans to also move the IIQ Plugins Center to the new Developers Community here?

Oh, and my Profile somehow shows me as currently logged in from “Ashburn, Virginia, United States” but I am weathering the subzero temperatures in central Europe at the moment…

@maschu, I’m glad you’re enjoying the UX of the platform hosting our forum–we are using Discourse.org, if you were curious!

We do have a category here in the forum for IIQ Plugin development where developers can actively discuss their development, but the place where plugins are ultimately stored/downloaded will remain where it is today.

As for your profile, I’ve seen that with myself a few times actually showing up in Amsterdam even though I’m from the lonely cornfields of Ohio, USA! It must be something with how Discourse is checking locations…

Hi,

Great start I must say. I do have a couple of questions though.

Is this the only item in the site discussion? It’s already a very long thread and I couldn’t work out how to add a new item to this? No doubt I’m just being stupid, wouldn’t be the first time!

And, sorry, but at the moment I sort of preferred a view of IDN API’s that listed the lot so I didn’t have to change pages to see every API on offer in a certain category. Now I have to jump backwards and forwards between various v3, Beta pages etc. I’ll just end up getting used to it but it seems a bit clunky right now. Perhaps being able to list every Certification API on a page or whatever other category, regardless of the version might be nice (and yes, I agree it’s important to know something is Beta etc)

Keep up the good work!
Cheers
Julian

Hey Julian,

Is this the only item in the site discussion? It’s already a very long thread and I couldn’t work out how to add a new item to this? No doubt I’m just being stupid, wouldn’t be the first time!

If you are referring to is this the only item in the site discussion for Site Feedback, the answer is no :slight_smile: You are currently in an individual thread. You can see the whole Site Feedback category here: https://developer.sailpoint.com/discuss/c/site-feedback/2

If you are referring to the entire SailPoint Developer Community Forum, the answer is also no :slight_smile: You can see all of the categories that we have available here: https://developer.sailpoint.com/discuss/

And, sorry, but at the moment I sort of preferred a view of IDN API’s that listed the lot so I didn’t have to change pages to see every API on offer in a certain category.

Great suggestion–you are correct, that is not ideal. We did have to make some changes when we jumped off of our previous docs hosting provider. We are now working on how we can create the best experience possible now that we have more control over how or content is hosted and displayed. I’ve added this suggestion to the roadmap for Q2, so expect changes soon :slight_smile:

Thanks, I knew I was missing the point somewhat with the discussions.
Cheers
Julian

@jordan.violet Hope compass and developer.sailpoint.com merge soon.

But I just loved the interface here… Very fast comparatively.
