Hi, how can we help you?

Thank you for choosing Sentinel! Follow these steps to set up your Sentinel instance:

In Workday
Step 1 (required): Set up Workday credentials 
Permission level: Workday Administrator

In Workday, credentials will need to be set up to allow Sentinel to connect to the Workday tenant:

  • Create an Integration System User (ISU)
  • Create an Integration Security Group (ISSG)
  • Assign permission Get Only to the domain security policy Integration Event
  • Assign permission Get Only to the domain security policy Integration Process
  • Assign the ISU to the ISSG
  • Activate the Security Policy
  • Provide to the Sentinel Admin
    • ISU Name
    • ISU Password
    • Workday Tenant Name
    • Workday Data Center
Note that the ISU password in Sentinel must be updated whenever the Workday ISU password expires.
Step 2 (recommended): Tag integrations in Workday
Permission level: Workday Administrator

Workday integration tags can be used to tailor the behavior of Sentinel, for example for issue prioritization and determining for which events Alerts should be generated. Tags can also be used to filter data in the Sentinel Dashboard.

To tag integrations:

  1. Log in to your Workday tenant
  2. Use Maintain Integration Tags to create the desired tags
  3. Use Edit Integration System to assign tags to the integration

In Sentinel
Step 3: Configure Workday connection
Permission level: Sentinel Admin

To set up the Workday connection to Sentinel:

  1. From the Sidebar, navigate to Configuration, Workday.
  2. Specify the Workday Tenant Name and Workday Data Center.
  3. Enter ISU Name and ISU Password.
  4. Click Check Credentials to test the connection.

Each Sentinel instance is configurable for one Workday tenant only. Multiple Sentinel instances can be configured if you need to monitor multiple tenants.
Step 4: Configure preferences for your organization
Permission level: Sentinel Admin

To configure preferences for you organization:

  1. Navigate to Configuration, Preferences.
  2. Under Organization profile, specify your Organization name and click Update organization name.
  3. Under Preferences, select the preferred UI theme and Timezone, and click Save.
Step 5: Configure Alert Severity
Permission level: Sentinel Admin
Configuring Workday tags will provide greater control over Alert severity configuration. See Prerequisite (recommended): Tag integrations in Workday for information on Workday tagging. If you have no Workday tags set up, <Default-No Tag> will be the only tag available for configuration.
Note that if an integration is assigned multiple Tags with varying severity configurations, Sentinel will default to the highest severity for a given integration completion status.

Alert Severity Management allows you to define the Sentinel Alert severity level based on integration tags and the completion status of a particular integration run.

For example, you can configure integrations tagged "Payroll" that complete with Workday status Failed to generate Urgent alerts.

  1. Navigate to Alerting, Alert Severity Management 
  2. To configure a new tag, click Add Tag, select a tag from the dropdown, and select the desired Severity for each Status.
  3. To remove a tag, click the  at the end of the relevant tag record.
  4. Click Submit to save changes.
Step 6: Invite users

To invite a user:

  1. Navigate to Configuration, User Management.
  2. Click Invite.
  3. Provide the required information.
  4. (Optional) Toggle on Send Email Digest to enable users to receive Integration digest emails.
  5. Click Submit.
  6. (Optional) Configure Alert notifications for the user.

The user will receive an email with instructions on how to access Sentinel.
Remove a User
Permission level: Sentinel Admin
  1. Navigate to Configuration, User Management.
  2. Click the red X button at the end of the User record. 

The user will be deleted. No notification will be sent to the user.
