For each connected data system that supports password synchronization, you can set password synchronization settings. These settings allow you to enable or disable password synchronization and manage passwords in the data system by using One Identity Password Manager.
Optionally, you can use the password synchronization settings to type a custom Windows PowerShell script you want to run each time the password synchronization completes for the connected data system.
To specify password synchronization settings
- In the Synchronization Service Administration Console, open the Connections tab.
- Click the name of the connection for which you want to modify password synchronization settings.
- Open the Password tab, and use the following options to modify the password synchronization settings as necessary:
- Synchronize and manage passwords. Allows you to enable or disable password synchronization for this connection. Selecting this check box also allows you to manage passwords in the connected data system by using One Identity Password Manager.

- Synchronize passwords for objects of this type. Allows you to specify an object type that will participate in password synchronization. Click Select next to this text box, and then specify the object type you want. This option is only available for certain types of connected systems, such as LDAP directory service.
- Password synchronization method. Allows you to select a password synchronization method. This option is only available for certain types of connected systems, such as LDAP directory service. You can select one of the following methods:
- Write password to this attribute. Displays the object attribute in which the object password will be stored. To specify a different attribute, click Select next to the text box in this option.
- Use LDAP extended operation. Allows you to automate the synchronization of user passwords in the connected data system regardless of the form of the authentication identity or the password storage mechanism used (for example, in the case of non-directory storage of passwords).
- Configure Query. Allows you to use an SQL query to specify the data you want to participate in the password synchronization. Click Configure, and then type your SQL query. This option is only available for certain types of connected systems, such as SQL Server or Oracle Database.
- When you are finished, click Save.
