Before and After Operations on Source Account Rule

Overview

This rule executes PowerShell commands on the IQService component after a source account has an operation performed on it.

The following operations can be performed on a source:

Rule NameRule TypeSource Type(s)Purpose
Before Creation RuleConnectorBeforeCreateActive Directory, Azure Active DirectoryExecutes PowerShell commands on the IQService component before a source account is created.
Before Modify RuleConnectorBeforeModifyActive Directory, Azure Active DirectoryExecutes PowerShell commands on the IQService component before a source account is modified.
Before Delete RuleConnectorBeforeDeleteActive Directory, Azure Active DirectoryExecutes PowerShell commands on the IQService component before a source account is deleted.
After Creation RuleConnectorAfterCreateActive Directory, Azure Active DirectoryExecutes PowerShell commands on the IQService component after a source account is created.
After Modify RuleConnectorAfterModifyActive Directory, Azure Active DirectoryExecutes PowerShell commands on the IQService component after a source account is modified.
After Delete RuleConnectorAfterDeleteActive Directory, Azure Active DirectoryExecutes PowerShell commands on the IQService component after a source account is deleted.

Execution

  • Connector Execution - This rule executes within the virtual appliance. It may offer special abilities to perform connector-related functions, and it may offer managed connections to sources.
  • Logging - Logging statements are viewable within the ccg.log on the virtual appliance, and they are viewable by SailPoint personnel.

Rule Execution

Input

ArgumentTypePurpose
ApplicationSystem.Collections.HashtableMap of the application configuration.
RequestSailPoint.Utils.objects.AccountRequestReference to the account request provisioning instructions.
ResultSailPoint.Utils.objects.ServiceResultReference to the provisioning result that can be manipulated if necessary.

Architecture Best Practices

For supportability, it is recommended that you write these operation rules with only the most basic logic necessary to trigger a PowerShell script and shift the bulk of the downstream events and/or modifications to the PowerShell script itself. This script would reside on the client's servers and can therefore be easily maintained or modified by the client as needed. It also allows the client to implement changes to the PowerShell scripted functionality without requiring code review by SailPoint because the code runs outside of the IdentityNow platform.

Rule Template

This example triggers on the BeforeCreate operation. If you want to use another operation, replace BeforeCreate in the name and ConnectorBeforeCreate in the type with one of the other operations described earlier in the Overview section.

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE Rule PUBLIC "sailpoint.dtd" "sailpoint.dtd">
<Rule language="beanshell" name="SampleSource BeforeCreate" type="ConnectorBeforeCreate">

<Description>
This is an IQService afterScript - On a successful provisioning event, this after script should be used as the starting point to
initiate a separate PowerShell script residing on the client's IQService server.

Configuration tasks include the following:
- Set a proper location for the $logFile variable.
- Set the proper script location and name for the $command variable.
- Set the $enableDebug flag to $true or $false to toggle debug mode.

Powershell Script Template

You can also use the following Powershell script template for each operation in the Overview section. Be sure to update the $logFile variable with the operation you use to ensure you are logging to a file with the correct operation name.

###############################################################################################################################
# SETUP
# Instructions (for each IQService host that could run the script):
# - Update the path to Utils.dll (can be an unqualified path like "Utils.dll" since script is copied to IQService folder for execution)
# - Make sure Utils.dll is in the specified folder on each IQService host
# - Be sure the account that runs IQService has appropriate permissions to create directories and set permissions on them
# - Be sure to set the "run as" account for the IQService in Windows Service to the above-specified account instead of just the "logged on" user
# - Set a proper location for the $logFile variable
# - Set the $enableDebug flag to $true or $false to toggle debug mode
