Identity Cloud

Kick off data review process using campaigns

Campaigns are the second step in certifying access for users.

Once you create a template, and you are ready to start the review process, create a campaign.

After you start a campaign, the end users (certifiers), that are defined in the template, are notified to start reviewing the data. The process of certifiers reviewing data is called an access review.

When you kick off a campaign, through the ad-hoc (one time) run under the Templates tab or through the schedule set in the template, the Certification tab displays the certification.

The following video shows an example:

To access campaigns, from the Identity Cloud admin UI, click Certification > Campaigns tab.

Campaign statuses to filter
Status Description


The campaign is in progress. In the Status column, this includes the In-progress, Expiring and Overdue states.

  • In-progress — The campaign is in progress and active.

  • Expiring — The campaign is in process and expires in two days or less. The template defines the deadline; however, you can update the deadline at any time.

  • Overdue — The campaign is past the expiration date but in process. Tasks still require completion. Identity Governance sets this status when you select one of the following settings in the template:

    • When to Certify > When certification expires > Close open items > Reassign.

    • Do nothing.

      The template defines the deadline; however, you can update the deadline at any time.


The campaign expired. Identity Cloud triggers this status when you select When to Certify > When certification expires > Close open items > immediately in the template.


This campaign was canceled manually and is no longer in progress. In certain situations when there is an error creating the campaign from the template, a campaign might automatically go into this state.


The campaign finished as expected with no issues.

Access reviews tab

The Access Reviews tab contains information on the certifiers in the campaign. The certifiers could be an individual or a role. This includes the progress they have made on their reviews, as well as the ability to view the items each certifier is responsible for.

By default, the page displays the certifiers who are reviewing the access review, which is in the Active state.

To view other statuses, select the Status drop-down:

Table 1. Certifier statuses to filter
Status Description


The certifier has line items on the campaign that do not have a decision made on them. A line item is a record for a certifier to review. For example, the user Barbara Jensen’s record that details their access to a particular application is a line item.


The campaign has passed its deadline and the certifier has line items that do not have a decision made on them.


The certifier has reviewed and made decisions on the line items assigned to them in their access review and signed off.

You can use the search icon to search for a specific campaign by its name.

There are three columns in the Access Reviews tab:

  • Certifier — The individual or users assigned to a role responsible for a part of the campaign.

  • Status — The status of the campaign.

  • Progress — The progress the certifier has made in their reviews.

    To view the percentage and number of items that are complete, hover over the progress icon.

Click the arrow icon on Certifier to filter alphabetically (ascending or descending).

To view additional features, such as forwarding a certifier’s items to another person or end users assigned to a role, click to the right of the table.

To gain a detailed view of the items left for a certifier, click on their record in the table. The drilled-down view is the same view a certifier utilizes when completing their items for the campaign. For more information on this view, refer to Certify data using access reviews.
