3. Configuring SAML in SailPoint IdentityIQ

3.1. Create the Correlation Rule

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE Rule PUBLIC "sailpoint.dtd" "sailpoint.dtd">
<Rule language="beanshell" name="Trusona SAML Rule" type="SAMLCorrelation">
      <Argument name="log">
                    Logger to take care of logging.
      <Argument name="context">
      <Argument name="assertionAttributes">
                    Map of attributes taken from the SAML assertion
      <Argument name="ident">
                    Matching identity based on the nameId taken from assertionAttributes
            // Imports
            import sailpoint.object.Identity;
            import sailpoint.object.Filter;
            import sailpoint.object.QueryOptions;

            // Making a BIG assumption here that the nameid-format is unspecified/persitent

            // Get the nameId from the assertionAttributes
            String nameId = (String)assertionAttributes.get("nameId");

            Identity ident;
            if(nameId != null) {
                // Lookup the identity based on nameId matching email
                QueryOptions options = new QueryOptions();
                options.addFilter(Filter.eq("email", nameId));

                int count = context.countObjects(Identity.class, options);
                if(count == 1){
                  Iterator iterator =, options);
                  if (iterator.hasNext()) {
                      ident =;

            return ident;
