Working with One Identity Manager

Working with One Identity Manager

To create a connection to One Identity Manager, you need to use Synchronization Service in conjunction with a special connector called One Identity Manager Connector. This connector is included in the Synchronization Service package.

The One Identity Manager Connector supports the following Synchronization Service features:

Allows you to read and write data in the connected data system.

Yes

Delta processing mode

Allows you to process only the data that has changed in the connected data system since the last synchronization operation, thereby reducing the overall synchronization operation time.

Yes

Password synchronization

Allows you to synchronize user passwords from One Identity Manager domain to the connected data system.

No
