To access external data systems, Synchronization Service employs so-called 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 upgrade process of the Administration Service does not preserve the replication settings. An upgrade can only be performed if the Administration Service is not configured for replication. Before upgrading the Administration Service, you should ensure that its database server is not configured as a Subscriber or Publisher. Replication for the new Administration Service needs to be configured after the upgrade.
An upgrade of Active Roles components may affect custom solutions that build upon the functions of Active Roles. Custom solutions (such as scripts or other modifications) that work fine with the earlier version of Active Roles may cease to work after the upgrade. Prior to attempting an upgrade, you should test the existing solutions with the new version of Active Roles in a lab environment to verify that the solutions continue to work. Should any compatibility issues arise during the test process, you can contact One Identity Software Professional Services for paid assistance with those solutions.
Upgrade of the Administration Service converts unmanaged domains to regular managed domains. If you have any domains registered as unmanaged domains with Active Roles version 6.8 or earlier, then, after the upgrade, you will need to make them unmanaged by applying the build-in Policy Object Exclude from Managed Scope. For further information and instructions, see “Configuring an unmanaged domain” in the Active Roles Administrator Guide.
