- Delta Sync mode processing allows you to quickly synchronize identities by processing only the data that has changed in the source and target connected systems since their last synchronization.
- Full runs are always required for workflow runs to verify both the source and the target aside from using the mappings table in the Sync Service to discover items.
- Delta Sync mode is not supported for all the connectors and SQL connector is one them. Delta sync is only available on systems that can provide a last modified timestamp. Below is the list of the connectors and whether Delta is supported. You can confirm this from the connection configuration file in the installation folder (see below examples).
- In case where one connector supports delta and the other does not in a workflow step, then delta will work only for the supported connector. For example if the AD connector and the SQL connection is part of workflow step then delta will work only for the AD connector.
For samples of a supported Delta connector and a non-supported Delta connector, please see the attachment called 'Sample Delta connectors.docx'.
- To enable Delta Mode, follow the below step.
Quick Run was implemented as a way to test Workflow changes in a more efficient manner. With this option, Synchronization Service first tries to run the sync workflow by using the data that is available in the local cache. If the local cache is missing or cannot be used to run the sync workflow, then Synchronization Service retrieves the required data from the connected data systems. If the local cache has been created prior to recent changes in the source or target systems, those changes are not picked up.
Note: It is recommended to use “Full Run” option while running a sync workflow manually if you’re not testing changes to a workflow.
