About scenarios

This section provides some use case scenarios that help you familiarize yourself with Quick Connect. The scenarios illustrate how to create and run synchronization workflows and their steps to update and provision user information from a Human Resources database represented by a delimited text file to an Active Directory domain.

The scenarios are:

Before you proceed with these sample scenarios (Scenario 1 and Scenario 2), perform the following steps:

  1. Make sure you have installed the Quick Connect for Base Systems package. For the installation instructions, see the Quick Connect for Base Systems documentation.
  2. Make sure you have properly configured the connection to the target Active Directory domain in the Quick Connect Administration Console.
  3. Create the Employees Organizational Unit (OU) at the root of the target Active Directory domain.
  4. In the Employees OU, create the following OUs:
    • New York
    • Tokyo
    • Amsterdam
    • OtherCities

Scenario 1: Provision users from a .csv file to an Active Directory domain

The following scenario demonstrates how to provision user accounts from a Human Resources (HR) database to an Active Directory domain. The HR database is represented by a sample Comma Separated Values (.csv) file supplied with the Quick Connect for Base Systems package. Depending on the user city, accounts will be provisioned to one of the following OUs:

  • Employees\New York
  • Employees\Tokyo
  • Employees\Amsterdam
  • Employees\OtherCities

This scenario includes the following steps:

Step 1: Create a workflow

To create a new synchronization workflow

  1. Start the Quick Connect Administration Console.
  2. Open the Workflows tab, and then click Add workflow.
  3. Type a descriptive name for the workflow being created, and then click OK to create the workflow.

Step 2: Create a provisioning step

This section provides instructions on how to:

  • Connect Quick Connect to the source Comma Separated Values (.csv) file and target Active Directory domain.
  • Create a new provisioning step and configure its settings, for example, specify the object attributes to provision.
  • Develop a Windows PowerShell script that returns the name of an Active Directory container for provisioned user accounts.

Preview a list of user accounts to be provisioned.

To create a provisioning step

  1. In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Workflows tab, and then click the workflow you created in Step 1: Create a workflow.
  2. Click Add synchronization step.
  3. On the Select an action page, select Provision, and then click Next.
  4. On the Specify source and criteria page, click Specify, click Add new connected system, and then step through the wizard to add the sample Comma Separated Values (.csv) file as a connected system:
    1. Use the Connection name box to type a descriptive name for the connection being created.
    2. In the Use the specified connector list, select Delimited Text File Connector. Click Next.
    3. Click Browse to locate and select the sample Comma Separated Values (.csv) file supplied with the Quick Connect for Base Systems package. This file is located in the folder
      <One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine installation folder>\Samples.
    4. Step through the wizard until you are on the Specify attributes to identify objects page.
    5. In the Available attributes list, select Employee ID, click Add, and then click Finish.
  5. Click Next.
    1. On the Specify target page, click Specify, and then step through the wizard to add the target Active Directory domain as a connected system:
    2. Use the Connection name box to type a descriptive name for the connection being created.
    3. In the Use the specified connector list, select Active Directory Connector. Click Next.
  6. Use the Domain name box to type the FQDN name of the target Active Directory domain. If necessary, adjust other connection settings on this page as appropriate. Click Finish.
  7. Click the down arrow on the button provided next to the Target container option.
  8. In the provided list, click PowerShell Script.
  9. Insert the following script sample into the dialog box, and then click OK:

    $userCity = $srcObj["City"]
     switch ($userCity)
    {
      "New York" {$container = "OU=New York,OU=Employees,DC=mycompany,DC=com"; break}
      "Amsterdam" {$container = "OU=Amsterdam,OU=Employees,DC=mycompany,DC=com"; break}
      "Tokyo" {$container = "OU=Tokyo,OU=Employees,DC=mycompany,DC=com"; break}
      default {$container = "OU=OtherCities,OU=Employees,DC=mycompany,DC=com"; break}
    }
    $containe
    r

    NOTE: Before using the script, change the "DC=mycompany",DC=com" string as appropriate to reflect your environment. For example, if you have created the Employees OU in the testlab.ttt domain, use the following string: "DC=testlab,DC=ttt".
  1. Click the down arrow on the leftmost button provided below the Rules to generate unique object name list.
  2. In the provided list, click Attribute.
  3. Select Logon Name, and then click OK. Click Next.
  4. Expand Initial Attribute Population Rules, and then create forward sync rules to synchronize the following pairs of attributes:
