Specifying Connection Variables

Specifying Connection Variables

Connection variables are set when the import is run immediately and are also added to the generated import script. You can use the variables in customized processes or templates that are executed after importing.

To define a connection variable

  1. Click the button.
  2. Click the "Name" entry and enter the variable name.
  3. Click the "Value" entry and enter the variable value.

To delete a connection variable

  • Click the button.

Importing Data

The following methods are available to you to import data:

  • Start the data import manually in the Data Import. The data records that are processed during import are logged.
  • To execute data imports on a regular basis, create an import script.

    You can use the import script in custom processes, for example. Use the process task "DataImport" of the process component "ScriptComponent" to create custom processes for importing.

To start importing immediately

  • Set the option Import data in the step "Save the Import Definition".
  • Select the Next to start importing the data.

    After importing has finished the processing result are displayed. If errors occur during the importing process you can view them with the Show button.

    TIP: Save the import log with the context menu Save log as file....

To create an import script

  • Set the option Create import script in the step "Saving the import definition".
  • Enter a name for the import script in Import script name.

    Only the VB name are permitted. If a character is not permitted, the text box is highlighted in red.

  • Select a change label in Add script to tag menu. Use the ... button to create a new change label.
  • Select the Next button so that the import script is created.
  • Compile the script library after saving the script. Click Yes to start the compiler

    NOTE: The import script is saved in the One Identity Manager database. You can only add import scripts to the database if they have permissions to use the program function "Import scripts can be added in the wizard for data import." (DataImport_CreateScript).

Using Import Definition Files

Using Import Definition Files

The import definition provides you with configuration settings for future data imports. You create the import definition file after setting up the import. You can load an existing import definition file in the Data Import when you set up an import.

To load an existing import definition

  • Select the file containing the import definition in the "Load an import definition file" step using the ... button.
  • Use the button to remove the selected file again.

NOTE: Leave this field empty if you want to create a new import definition.

To save an import definition

  • Set the option Save import definition file in the step "Save the Import Definition".
  • Select the file path with ..., enter the file name and click Save.

    The import definition is saved as an XML file.

Web Service Integration

Web Service Integration

The One Identity Manager offers you the option to integrate web services. For example, you can use web services to write data to applications, which cannot be connection to One Identity Manager as a default target system.

Data for external applications can be originate from any of the One Identity Manager schema's tables. They can, for example, be mapped as custom target systems.


The general data for a telephone system should be found from personnel data in One Identity Manager. The telephone system is mapped in One Identity Manager as a custom target system. One extension in the telephone corresponds a user account in One Identity Manager.

Once a new employee has been added in One Identity Manager, a new extension should become available in the telephone system. A new user account is added for each account definition. A web service passes the user account''s master data onto the telephone system. where a new participant and telephone number is added. The web service passes this telephone number to the One Identity Manager as the return value. The telephone number should be transferred to the employee's master data.

Proceed as follows

  1. Set up a custom target system in One Identity Manager.
    • Select the value "Synchronization by script" for the property "Synchronized by".
  2. Set up the server for provisioning the data.
    • Enter the server as the synchronization server in the custom target system.
  3. Set up an account definition for automatic administration of user accounts in this target system.
  4. Enter the required IT operating data.
  5. Bind the web service to One Identity Manager. Use the generic web service call for this.

    The web service integration wizard helps you to create scripts for provisioning data for the default events Insert, Update and Delete. The provisioning processes are supplied automatically through One Identity Manager.

  6. Create additional scripts and processes for handling the web service return value.

    TIP: When you insert, change or delete containers, user accounts and groups in a custom target system, the return values are saved by default as GUID objects in the database.

    Create a process to add the telephone in the object GUID to the employee's master data.
