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
To delete a connection variable
The following methods are available to you to import data:
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
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
Only the VB name are permitted. If a character is not permitted, the text box is highlighted in red.
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).
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
NOTE: Leave this field empty if you want to create a new import definition.
To save an import definition
The import definition is saved as an XML file.
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
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.
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.
