BuildMap Rule


This rule manipulates raw input data provided by the rows and columns in a file and builds a map from the incoming data. Use this rule to create a new value by combining two columns together. For example, if one column was access and another permissions you could combine these together to create an entitlement admin-read.

This rule runs in the cloud, but it's really a connector rule because it executes against the DelimitedFileConnector. :::


  • Cloud Execution - This rule executes in the Identity Security Cloud cloud, and has read-only access to the records from the Delimited File being imported. However, it doesn't have access to on-premise sources or connectors.
  • Logging - Logging statements are currently only visible to SailPoint personnel.

Rule Execution


colsjava.util.ListOrdered list of the column names from the file’s header records or specified columns list.
recordjava.util.ListOrdered list of the values for the current record, parsed based on the specified delimiter.
applicationSystem.Collections.HashtableMap of the application configuration.
schemasailpoint.object.SchemaReference to the schema object for the delimited file source being read.
