12.0 Managing Data in the Catalog

The Identity Governance catalog contains all of the identities and permissions in your organization that you choose to collect. You use this information to create a unified identity for each person in your organization so you can review the permissions assigned to them.

To manage the Identity Governance catalog, you must have Bootstrap, Customer, Global, or Data Administrator authorization.

Identity Governance helps you create a unified identity for each user that combines all permissions that have been assigned by your identity and application sources. To build the unified identity, Identity Governance must know how to map incoming identity attributes. The catalog needs at least one identity source, such as Active Directory, and at least one application source. Otherwise, you cannot map identity attributes to permissions. When using a comma-separated value (CSV) file as a data source, the file must use UTF-8 encoding.
