Synchronization Service Capture Agent allows password synchronization between Active Directory domains managed by Synchronization Service and other connected data systems. The following diagram shows how the Password Synchronization feature of Synchronization Service works:
Figure 2: Password Synchronization
Capture Agent tracks changes to user passwords in the source Active Directory domain and provides that information to Synchronization Service, which in turn synchronizes the changes with target connected data systems by using the configured password synchronization rules. To synchronize passwords, install a Capture Agent on each domain controller in the Active Directory source domain.
If Quick Connect is configured with synchronization workflows that contain similar connector in Synchronization Service, then those synchronization workflows can be transferred to Synchronization Service.
The following synchronization workflows can be transferred from the following Quick Connect versions:
Synchronization Service is unable to run synchronization workflows that employ connections to the following systems:
If it is necessary to synchronize data held in these systems, continue using Quick Connect as not all connectors provided by Quick Connect are included with Synchronization Service. Alternatively, One Identity Manager may support these systems.
For an upgrade demonstration, please refer to the following knowledge base article:
To upgrade Synchronization Service
NOTE: Before proceeding with this step, it is highly recommended to disable the scheduled workflows and mapping operations in Quick Connect. The scheduled workflows and mapping operations may be started after this step is completed.
To import configuration settings:
This is required due to security reasons. The import of configuration settings does not retrieve the encrypted passwords from Quick Connect. Use the Synchronization Service Administration Console to make changes to each connection as appropriate, depending upon the data system to which the connection applies.
The new version of Capture Agent replaces the old version. However, as the new version supports both Synchronization Service and Quick Connect, the password synchronization functions of Quick Connect will not be lost after the Capture Agent is updated.
