Viewing Statistics

Statistics about provisioning processes are displayed on the Web Portal's start page and are visible for administrators, operators and auditors. The number of pending provisioning processes are displayed in chronological order in the statistics. The timeline consists of point that represent each respective date and can be clicked on. Mouse over a point on the timeline to display a tooltip showing information about the pending processes on this tag.

To view statistics

  1. Double-click on a point in the timeline.

    This opens a window with an enlarged visual. which makes the data for each point in the timeline viewable.

  2. Mouse over the date above the point to you want to know about.

    The number of processes for this date are displayed.

  3. Allow all processes with values to be displayed in decreasing chronological order.
    1. Click Help.
    2. Select the View source data tab.

Additional Information for Experts

Additional Information for Experts

When you set up synchronization with a cloud application, One Identity Manager uses the SCIM schema exported from the server. If the SCIM connector cannot find the schema, you can pass it the schema data by using override files. The override files contain a complete description of the schema being used and they must confirm to the SCIM Core SchemaClosed specification (RFC 7643).

To configure synchronization with override files

  1. Start the Synchronization EditorClosed.
  2. Enable expert mode.
  3. Set up an initial synchronization project. For more information, see Creating a Synchronization Project for Initial Synchronization of a Cloud Application. The following anomalies apply:
    1. If you want more options, specify this on the Export settings page by setting Show schema settings.
    2. Enter the path for the override files on the Schema definition page. Both files must exist.
      Table 32: Override Files
      Property Description
      Schema override file Contains the complete schema definition of the cloud application.
      Resource configuration override file Contains a complete resource definition of the cloud application.
      • Click Check to check the override files for errors.

IMPORTANT: If override file are given in the synchronization configuration files they replace a schema definition on the server.

Schema definitions from override files are saved as connection parameters (DPRSystemConnection.ConnectionParameter).

You must make any changes to the SCIM schema in the override files, which must then be reloaded into the synchronization project.

To add schema changes to the synchronization project

  1. Update the schema definition in the override files.
  2. Open the synchronization project in the SynchronizationClosed Editor.

  3. Enable expert mode.
  4. Select the category Configuration | Target systems.
  5. Select the General view and click Edit connection....

    This starts the system connection wizard.

  6. Enter the path for the override files on the Schema definition page.
  7. End the system connection wizard.

    This updates the connection parameters.

  8. Select the view General and click Update schema.
  9. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.
  10. Save the changes.

If the server has a valid schema definition because of later changes, for example, the override files' schema must be removed from the connection parameters.

To remove the override file's schema and apply the server's schema definition

  1. Open the synchronization project in the Synchronization Editor.

  2. Enable expert mode.
  3. Select the category Configuration | Target systems.
  4. Select the General view and click Edit connection....

    This starts the system connection wizard.

  5. Enter the URIs of the SCIM endpoints on the Endpoint Configuration page. Use the SCIM base schema if no URIs are given.
  6. Select Schema definition and click Clear existing for both the schema override file and the resource configuration override file.
  7. End the system connection wizard.
  8. Select the view General and click Update schema.
  9. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.
  10. Save the changes.

Appendix: Default Project Template for Cloud Applications

Appendix: Default Project Template for Cloud Applications

A default project template ensures that all required information is added in the One Identity Manager. This includes mappings, workflows and the synchronization base object. If you do not use a default project template you must declare the synchronization base object in One Identity Manager yourself.

Use a default project template for initially setting up the synchronization project. For custom implementations, you can extend the synchronization project with the .Synchronization EditorClosed

The template uses mappings for the following schema types.
