Deactivating Synchronization

Deactivating Synchronization

Regular synchronization cannot be started until the synchronization project and the schedule are active.

To prevent regular synchronization

  • Select the start up configuration and deactivate the configured schedule.

    Now you can only start synchronization manually.

An activated synchronization project can only be edited to a limited extend. The schema in the synchronization project must be updated if schema modifications are required. The synchronization project is deactivated in this case and can be edited again.

Furthermore, the synchronization project must be deactivated if synchronization should not be started by any means (not even manually).

To deactivate the loaded synchronization project

  1. Select General on the start page.
  2. Click Deactivate project.

Base Data for Managing Exchange Online

Base Data for Managing Exchange Online

To manage an Exchange Online environment in One Identity Manager, the following data is relevant.

  • Configuration parameter

    Use configuration parameters to configure the behavior of the system's basic settings. One Identity Manager provides default settings for different configuration parameters. Check the configuration parameters and modify them as necessary to suit your requirements.

    Configuration parameters are defined in the One Identity Manager modules. Each One Identity Manager module can also install configuration parameters. You can find an overview of all configuration parameters in the category Base data | General | Configuration parameters in the Designer.

    For more information, see Appendix: Configuration Parameters for Managing Exchange Online.

  • Account definitions

    One Identity Manager has account definitions for automatically allocating user accounts to employees during working hours. You can create account definitions for every target system. If an employee does not have a user account in the target system, a new user account is created. This is done by assigning account definitions to an employee using the integrated inheritance mechanism followed by process handling.

    For more information, see Setting Up Account Definitions.

  • Target system types

    Target system types are required for configuring target system comparisons. Tables containing outstanding objects are maintained on target system types.

    For more information, see Post-Processing Outstanding Objects.

  • Target system managers

    A default application role exists for the target system manager in the One Identity Manager. Assign this application to employees who are authorized to edit the Exchange Online objects in One Identity Manager.

    Define other application roles, if you want to limit target system managers' access permissions to individual clients with Exchange Online. The application roles must be added under the default application role.

    For more information, see Target System Managers.

Setting Up Account Definitions

One Identity Manager has account definitions for automatically allocating user accounts to employees during working hours. You can create account definitions for every target system. If an employee does not have a user account in the target system, a new user account is created. This is done by assigning account definitions to an employee using the integrated inheritance mechanism followed by process handling.

The data for the user accounts in the respective target system comes from the basic employee data. The assignment of the IT operating data to the employee’s user account is controlled through the primary assignment of the employee to a location, a department, a cost center, or a business role (template processing). Processing is done through templates. There are predefined templates for determining the data required for user accounts included in the default installation. You can customize templates as required.

For more details about the basics, see the One Identity Manager Target SystemClosed Base Module Administration Guide.

The following steps are required to implement an account definition:

Creating an Account Definition

To create a new account definition

  1. Select the category Azure Active Directory | Basic configuration data | Account definitions | Account definitions.

  2. Select an account definition in the result list. Select Change master data in the task view.

    - OR -

    Click in the result list toolbar.

  3. Enter the account definition's master data.
  4. Save the changes.

NOTE: Exchange Online mailboxes are generated or deleted through the assignment or removal of licenses through Azure Active Directory subscriptions in the Azure Active Directory Module. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Administration Guide for Connecting to Azure Active Directory.
