6.2 Creating an Integration Account

Connectors are components that can connect to external systems and collect (pull) data from and fulfill (push) data to that system. Businesses can authorize administrators to perform integration activities. However, we strongly recommend that you create a dedicated account for the integration activities performed by the Identity Governance connectors (collectors and fulfillers) for collection or fulfillment. This would ensure that integration authorization is not associated with a specific user but associated with an account for business continuity and auditing purposes.

Based on the desired integration, specific capabilities for the integration account user might be required. For guidance related to procedures for creating the integration account, refer to the documentation of your systems that you want to integrate with Identity Governance. For example, you can refer to the Salesforce knowledge article to create an integration account for Salesforce. For a Workday integration account, refer to your Workday documentation.
