Creating resources with The TypeScript SDK

You can use the SDK to create new resources.

Here is an example create workgroup script from the beta APIs you can copy into your typescript project to try it out:

import {Configuration, GovernanceGroupsBetaApi, GovernanceGroupsBetaApiCreateWorkgroupRequest, PublicIdentitiesApi} from "sailpoint-api-client"

const createWorkGroup = async () => {
let apiConfig = new Configuration()
let identitiesApi = new PublicIdentitiesApi(apiConfig)

let identity = (await identitiesApi.getPublicIdentities({limit: 1})).data[0]

let api = new GovernanceGroupsBetaApi(apiConfig)
let workgroup: GovernanceGroupsBetaApiCreateWorkgroupRequest = {
workgroupDtoBeta: {
name: "DB Access Governance Group",
description: "Description of the Governance Group",
owner: {
type: "IDENTITY",

let val = await api.createWorkgroup(workgroup)



Run this command to compile and run the code:

tsc src/index.ts && node src/index.js

The example uses the getPublicIdentities method from the PublicIdentitiesApi to pull an identity needed to be the owner of the Workgroup.

The create workgroup request is initialized on lines 10-20 using the identity's name and id in the owner object.

The WorkGroup will be returned by the SDK:

description: 'Description of the Governance Group',
owner: {
displayName: 'Brian Mendoza',
emailAddress: null,
type: 'IDENTITY',
id: '0003c25c365e492381d4e557b6159f9b',
name: 'Brian Mendoza'
memberCount: 0,
connectionCount: 0,
id: '541ded73-d4b4-41d6-a10c-8085c02815bb',
name: 'DB Access Governance Group',
created: null,
modified: null
