The Developer Community CoLab: A New Way to Find, Build, and Collaborate on Extensibility Solutions!

Introducing The CoLab

The Developer Community CoLab is a new place where developer community members can share integrations they’ve built that use, or integrate with, SailPoint platforms. You can then collaborate with each other in real-time on these integrations, working together to solve both common and complex problems in identity. Our goal is to make it even easier for you to come together to solve your identity problems!

Read below for the full details and how to make use of the CoLab!

Who is the CoLab for?

Anyone can participate in the CoLab, regardless of if you consider yourself a developer or not. The CoLab is all about collaboration. Sometimes that may mean one person has the idea, and the other person has the capability of creating it—so you can come together in the orum to create it! It could also mean you contribute a solution to a problem you had, so others don’t face that same challenge. Whatever the case, if you’re looking to solve identity problems using SailPoint, the CoLab is for you.

:technologist: Not a developer? That’s okay! We expect the vast majority of our users of integrations from the CoLab, built by others!

What are the technical details?

Here are some pertinent, technical details that you may find useful before getting started with the CoLab:

  • All integrations in the CoLab will be open source, MIT licensed, and hosted in SailPoint’s Open-source GitHub organization:
  • All integrations in the CoLab are community maintained, unless expressed otherwise on the topic of that solution. Otherwise, watch that integration topic to see who the active community contributors on those community-maintained integrations.
  • Those participating in SailPoint’s Developer Community Ambassador Program will receive significant point values for contributing new integrations to the CoLab, as well as for maintaining those integrations.

How do I get started?

:star: Looking for a nice link to share with your team to easily browse all of the available integrations? We’ve got you:

Whether you’re looking to make use of integrations already built in the CoLab, or you’re looking to publish something new, we’ve got you covered. In both cases, we recommend reading the CoLab Getting Started Guide:

Using integrations in the CoLab

We always recommend checking out the CoLab for integrations before going off to build your own. Why reinvent the wheel? The CoLab can be found right here in the Developer Community Forum, in the CoLab category. Like the rest of our forum, the CoLab has subcategories and tags as well:

Each CoLab category will come with its own getting started guide on how to use integrations in that category. Don’t worry if you forget where the guide is, every CoLab integration will come with a link to that guide, and any integration-specific documentation as well.

Publishing new integrations to the CoLab

Interested in publishing something new? You can get started as a new publisher to the CoLab by heading over to the getting started guide as well, where we outline the process for publishing something new to the CoLab.

:bangbang: The CoLab will have high standards for publishing, and not all integrations will be deemed ready for the CoLab. For these, you can always share what you are building in our Show and Tell categories(IDN Show and Tell, IIQ Show and Tell).

Final Thoughts

We are so thankful for such a strong, intelligent, and vibrant community, and we are excited to continue to provide a space that enables you to solve your identity problems easier and faster. Let us know what you think about the CoLab, what questions you have, and we look forward to seeing what you build together


This sounds amazing! I am really looking forward to contributing to it, and seeing what others produce.


Excited to see it, Jason!

The initiative seems very interesting and amazing. This will build a great synergy between the Community members and can help many to utilise others work to the fullest.


Partners, Customers and SailPoint itself extending the Tools functionality together. Great!
As an engineer that worked with plenty IAM Solutions from different Vendors, I can confirm that this makes SailPoint really unique.

Is there any further information about the Support-Models available besides the short description on the ‘Getting Started’ Page?

I would like to know what scope of support is expected for partner-developed integrations, or if partners are just encouraged to provide support in the integration’s community thread.

Additionally: If an employee of a SailPoint Partner decides to develop an integration in his leisure time just for fun and it turns out that it’s good enough to get published - Is it automatically considered a partner-developed integration?

Hey Fabian,

Great questions! Let me see if I can give you some good answers :slight_smile:

Currently, everything we have of note today about support of the CoLab items is on the topic below.

There are currently no explicit requirements at the time of this writing beyond what you inferred: partners are encouraged to support the integration and accept contributions from your peers. If we see integrations being unmaintained, we may tag them as unmaintained and look for a new owner/maintainer in the community.

It is possible we add more requirements one day, but we didn’t want to have too much of a barrier for people to contribute on either end, to start. Are there any requirements you think you might want to see us add?

That is entirely up to you and any agreements you have in place with your employer. Good question!
