Modifying an existing Oracle Database connection

To modify connection settings

  1. Make sure that the Synchronization Service computer has the following software installed:

    • Oracle Client. Ensure Oracle Client is configured to connect to the Oracle service that can be used to access Oracle Database that hosts the data you want to work with.

    • Oracle Net Services

    • Oracle Data Provider for .NET

    For supported versions of this software, see the System Requirements section in the Active Roles Release Notes.

  2. In the Synchronization Service Administration Console, open the Connections tab.

  • SQL queries to run after user updated. Lists the SQL queries you want to run each time Synchronization Service has updated a user account in Oracle Database.

  • Available attributes. Lists the attributes that are available in the external data system. Use this list to select the attributes whose values you want to use to generate a unique identifier for each object in the external data system. You can filter attributes by typing in the text box at the top of this list. To select multiple attributes, hold down CTRL and click to select attributes in the list.
  • UniqueID attributes. Lists the attributes whose values are currently used to generate a unique identifier for each object in the external data system.
