Synchronization Service lets you create flexible rules for generating the distinguished names (DNs) of objects being created. These rules allow you to ensure that created objects are named in full compliance with the naming conventions existing in your organization.
You can schedule the execution of data synchronization operations and automatically perform them on a regular basis to satisfy your company’s policy and save time and effort.
To access external data systems Synchronization Service employs special connectors. A connector enables Synchronization Service to read and synchronize the identity data contained in a particular data system. Out of the box, Synchronization Service includes connectors that allow you to connect to the following data systems:
The following illustration shows how Synchronization Service synchronizes data between connected data systems.

Synchronization Service uses Capture Agents, connected data systems, connectors, connections, and sync workflows to synchronize identity data.
