Adapter Integration Setup

While to access SaaS data you need to grant roles and/or permissions that include write capabilities, the adapter only actually reads data from the application.

  1. Login to IdentityNow as an organizational administrator (ORG_ADMIN).
  2. Navigate to the Admin UI, click on the Dashboard dropdown and select the Overview page.
  3. Select Preferences from the drop-down menu under your username, then Personal Access Tokens on the left.
  4. Click New Token and enter a meaningful description to help differentiate the token from others.
  5. Click Create Token to generate and view the two components that comprise the token: the Secret and the Client ID.

Copy the Client ID and Client Secret. These are required for the Adapter connection parameters.
