Training Modules with Hands-on Labs

There are some training modules with hands-on labs, including:

Other Training on SLA

There is the paid-for IGI Foundations courses (indicated by the $ symbol) and an Open Badge you can get to show your expertise.

Open Mic Sessions

There are also a number of recorded Open Mic sessions from the Support L2 team, including:
  • Identity Governance Troubleshooting Open Mic
  • IGI Clustering and High Availability Open Mic
  • ISIGADI (ISIM-IGI synch) Tips and Troubleshooting Open Mic
  • Identity & Governance Meet the Experts Open Mic
  • An Introduction to the IGI 5.2.5 database schema Open Mic

These recent presentations cover a range of support issues. Note that all IBM Security Support Open Mics can be found on YouTube: There is a section for Identity and Access Management videos. There are some that aren’t on the Security Learning Academy, like IBM IGI and Access Manager Single Sign-On.

Please review the content and if you feel there are items that should be covered, either in courses or Support Open Mics, raise them in the forum.
