In the SailPoint user dashboard, Identity Warehouse is a typical Warehouse where all identities are maintained. When you go to the SailPoint user interface, you will see all the identities there. It is a central place within the SailPoint known as Identity Warehouse; it is one of the significant locations in SailPoint for all identities. In Identity Warehouse, you will see Identity Cube, which could be real or virtual identities. As we already know that whenever someone joins an organization, a virtual identity is created for that particular person in the organization.

Sailpoint……..> Two types of attributes…….>1. Identity level…..>2. Application-level
There are two types of generic attribute levels in SailPointIQ:
1. Identity level attribute: Identity levels are the type of attributes that are maintained on the SailPoint level. The scope of these attributes is global in nature, and it is directly defined at the SailPoint level.
2. Application-level attribute: Application-level attribute target applications combined into a single machine, indicating that this application is the only one in SailPoint that everyone in the business can access. This means the scope of the application-level attribute is local to the application.
In identity level attributes, you can see some genric level information like user name, first name, email, manager, department name, and so on listed. Also, you’ll know the application-level identity of all of your target applications that are integrated into a certain device, which tells you that this is the only application in SailPoint that anyone in the organization may access. For example, if an employee of your organization named John decides to leave the organization, then there is no need for you to go through each application to track access. You already have the information about the target application he has an account on and whether access is active or inactive.
