One Identity Manager Connector configuration file

One Identity Manager connector saves its configuration settings in the configuration file (.xml file) located in the QuickConnect installation folder. You can edit the XML elements in the file to configure the various parameters of the One Identity Manager Connector. The table below describes the XML elements you can edit.

Table 8: XML elements

XML element

Description

<ExcludeDeletedObjects>

Specifies how One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine will treat objects marked as deleted in Identity Manager. This element can take one of the following values:

  • TRUE. Specifies to ignore deleted objects during data synchronization operations.
  • FALSE. Specifies to process deleted objects during data synchronization operations.

Example:

<ExcludeDeletedObjects>
TRUE
</ExcludeDeletedObjects>

<PasswordAttributes>

Specifies the default Identity Manager attribute to be used for storing passwords for objects of a particular type. Specifying an attribute for storing passwords in the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine GUI overrides the value set in this XML element.

Example:

<PasswordAttributes>
   <PasswordAttributeDefinitions>
      <PasswordAttributeDefinition objectType="Person"       attribute="CentralPassword" />
   </PasswordAttributeDefinitions>
</PasswordAttributes>

<ReadFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Read operations performed in Identity Manager.

<CreateFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Create operations performed in Identity Manager.

<ModifyFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Modify operations performed in Identity Manager.

<DeleteFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Delete operations performed in Identity Manager.

<ObjRefFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Modify Object Reference operations performed in Identity Manager.

<SyncStatusFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Sync Status operations performed in Identity Manager.

For more information about the FullSync variable and the values it can take, see the One Identity Manager documentation.

 

Using remote connectors

You can install and use Quick Connect connector packages not only on the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine computer (locally), but also on remote computers that do not host the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine. Connectors installed on remote computers are called remote connectors. A remote connector provides the same functionality as a locally installed connector.

One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine communicates with a remote connector via a single port. For this reason, using a remote connector makes it easier for you to configure a connection to an external data system in a situation where it is separated from the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine computer by a firewall.

Consider a scenario where you want to synchronize data between two Active Directory domains that are separated by a firewall. In this scenario, you can install the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine in one domain, and then deploy the Active Directory Connector on a domain controller in the other domain. Then, ensure the firewall allows traffic on the port used for communications between the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine and the remotely installed Active Directory Connector.

In this section:

Steps to deploy a remote connector

The key component that enables One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine to access remote connectors and communicate with them is called the Connector Access Service. Each computer on which you want to install and use remote connectors must be running the Connector Access Service. The Connector Access Service is supplied with the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine as a standalone component.

To deploy a remote connector, complete these steps:

Step 1: Install Connector Access Service

To install the Connector Access Service

  1. Ensure the remote computer meets the system requirements for installing the Connector Access Service.

    For details, see the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine Release Notes.

  2. On the remote computer, run one of the following files supplied with the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine:
    • If the remote computer is running a 32-bit edition of Windows, run the QuickConnectConnectorAccessService_x86.msi file.
    • If the remote computer is running a 64-bit edition of Windows, run the QuickConnectConnectorAccessService_x64.msi file.
  3. Follow the steps in the setup wizard to complete the Connector Access Service installation.
