IdentityNow Rule Validator 3.0 + Generic Rules

As you may know, for IdentityNow Cloud Rules Рthey have to be submitted to SailPoint for upload to the tenant. We have a rule validator tool to validate IdentityNow rules for malformed or incorrect code fragments, and help make sure they conform to the SailPoint IdentityNow Rule Guide before rule submission.

We have had a great release of a brand new IdentityNow Rule Validator v3.0 (currently sitting on 3.0.23 at the time of writing). This is a major jump forward with mention in release notes (many more enhancements than what it states ūüôā )¬†

  • BeanShell linter will now validate syntax and usage to help discover issues in your code before you deploy
  • A watch option which continually monitors and validate/lint¬† your code while you develop.


Please download and use the latest one when submitting rules for deployment otherwise you rule will get rejected for using the old version.

What I wanted to point out was that Generic Rules may start failing validation as it is doing much strict linting check for variables coming from transform which are not defined in the rule. You will need to add them to <Signature> tag for it to now pass validator.


You will see two inputs 

  • identity – this is the identity context which every cloud rule has access to but not predefined as input in the Generic Rule type.
  • identityEndDate – this is an input coming from a transform which is calling the rule

If I run this on the rule validator, it will fail with the following errors

As you can see – it couldn’t retrieve the definition for both the attributes¬†


You need to define them under the Signature XML tag so that the validator allows it through

As you can see the Signature tag is defined with Argument name and type. This will allow the rule validator to understand what they are. So the rule will now look like

Now the rule will pass

You are good to submit your rule now…¬†

Happy coding!!!
