Creating a Process Plan

A process plan contains the basic configuration for automatically running a process.

To edit a process plan

  1. Select the category Process Orchestration | Process automation in the Designer.
  2. Start the editor using the task Edit process plans.
  3. Create a new process plan using Process plan | New.

    - OR -

    Select an existing process plan.

  4. Edit the process plans master data.

TIP: You can execute the process plan immediately from the context using Execute or Process plan | Start process plan now. The process is queued in the One Identity Manager database.

TIP: You can see which process is triggered from the context item Edit process.

Table 243: Process Plan Properties
Property Meaning
Name Name of the process plan. Translate the given text using the button.
Table Base object (table) for which the process plan will run.
Event Event to be executed. All base object events are listed for new process plans.
Activation schedule

Schedule that contains the execution time for the process plan.

NOTE: Create a new schedule using next to the menu.

Max.execution time (hours) Enter the number of hours after which the process plan should automatically quit.

Process Components

Process components and their process tasks form a framework that all process steps can be based on. The tables Jobcomponent, JobTask and Jobparameter define the complete range of One Identity Manager’s own process components and process task with the associated parameters.

Process tasks are used to carry out single basic jobs at system level, for example, adding directories. A process component consists of one or more process tasks and its parameters.

When a process is created, the parameter templates for the process task are copied and entered in the process step. This means that every process step that uses this process task can pass other parameter values. The original is not altered.

NOTE:The information available for the process components is added through migration and cannot be edited.

To obtain a complete overview of process components and their process tasks and parameters

  • Select the report Process components in the category Documentation | System configuration reports in the Designer.

To display individual process components and their process tasks and parameters

  • Select the category Process Orchestration | Process automation in the Designer.

The following table contains short descriptions of the process components.

Table 244: Short Descriptions of Process Components
Component Description
AutoUpdateComponent This process component maps the One Identity Manager Service built-in-tasks.
CommandComponent This process component runs any command.
DelayComponent This process component controls the start time of the following process steps.
FileComponent This process component creates, deletes, copies and modifies file and directories and also their access permissions.

The program RSync is required as prerequisite for using the process component under Linux (download from: or

The program XCacls is required as prerequisite for setting permissions. You can find this in the your server installation resource kit.

FtpComponent This process component can transfer file by FTP.
HandleObjectComponent This process component runs default and custom events for database objects. Each assigned default process is generated as in the front-ends (for example, the Manager). The component also makes it possible to initiate so called CustomEvents for triggering object related generation of a special process.
LogComponent This process component is used to log messages, for example, in the result log.
MailComponent This process component can send emails.
PowerShellComponent This process is used for calling Windows PowerShell. Version 2.0 of Windows PowerShell must be installed.


This process is used for calling a .NET 4 Windows PowerShell. A version later than 2.0 of Windows PowerShell must be installed.

ProjectorComponent This process component contains tasks for synchronizing and provisioning data with the One Identity Manager database.
ReportComponent This process component can create reports and export them in various file formats.
ScriptComponent This process component run the scripts from the assemblies.
SQLComponent This process component runs SQL queries and can be used to determine the number of data records and the existence of data records.
SubversionComponent This process component runs the sub version operations. The process compoment only runs under 64-bit operating systems.

Prerequisites for using Process Components

  • The program SharpSVN, version 1.8.9 is installed. The program is not part of One Identity Manager.
  • The version for Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 is stored in the One Identity Manager Service installation directory.
ZipComponent This process component creates or unpacks ZIP files.
