Can we use SAV4SAV REST connector to copy certain metadata

Team,

We want to understand if we can use SAV4SAV REST connector on below use cases

  1. Copying certain metadata(CP) from Role object(AD groups, GCP groups etc created through Saviynt) to entitlement object
  2. Copy the owner of entitlement and add as certifier(As currently Role to entitlement only owner information is passed it doesn't support assigning certifiers)
  3. And in certain connectors we some metadata coming from target for entitlement which going to CP values but we need to copy it to default attributes (like display name) since respective connector doesn't support mapping to default attribute

Earlier we use to do DB Import Jobs to achieve these use cases now in new versions we were told to use SAV4SAV REST connector but we are not clear whether these use cases are supported or not

As per our understanding if we use SAV4SAV REST entitlements are getting under respective saviynt endpoint but how to push the data to target endpoint not saviynt endpoint?

@Saathvik You can certainly use the SAV4SAV Rest connection to copy the metadata and update exiting entitlements.

There is another post https://forums.saviynt.com/t5/identity-governance/saviyntforsaviynt-rest-access-entitlement-import-n... you can refer to for steps and JSON example to be used for updating entitlement.

Also, below is the link to Saviynt api document for the different calls.

@SB Follow up question can this support copying Rank 1 Owner of an entitlement to Rank26 Owner(certifier)?

Because ImportAccountJSON uses entOwnerMappings section to populate owner of the respective entitlement but there we don't specifically mention the Rank, So how can we achieve this?

Setting up Role Owner rank with REST is not supported but you can use the CSV upload option in order to change the rang.

@SB : Thanks for the response yeah we are aware of csv upload process, But no we are not looking for manual process instead we are looking for automated process. As we are getting owner information either from target directly as part of Access Import or through self service group creation process (AD or GCP) as part of itself we wanted to assign the certifier as well. If that is not supported we will have an IDEA open for it. 

Thank you for confirming that it is not supported
