SelfIAG is a wiki page for professionals in the Identity Governance and Administration space. Formerly known as IAG, IAM, IDM.

As you could already see in the long list of names for this IT discipline, it necessary to have a common language or better a Domain Specific language (DSL).

Especially for document business requirements this DSL could help to avoid misunderstandings. While the business language is velotile and changes a lot based on new “trends”, the DSL of the IT professionals who implement and configure IGA solutions is more stable. SelfIGA tries to document this DSL as best as it could.

Since DSL’s as well as spoken languages changing over time, this wiki welcomes any help, so feel free to get into interaction with us, if you have new terms or comments to existing terms.
