Editing Object Matching Rules

Object matching rules assign schema properties through which system objects can be uniquely identified. For example, groups can be uniquely identified through schema properties DistinguishedName and ObjectGUIDActive Directory.

Object matching rules can be added or created from property mapping rules. If system objects can only be identified through several schema properties, different property matching rules can be linked with logical operators to form an object matching rule.

If several object matching rules are set up, they are executed in the order in which they are listed in the rule view. If system objects can be identified using the top rule, the rest of the rules are not executed. If system objects cannot be identified using the top rule, One Identity Manager uses the next rule to determine the system objects.

NOTE:

  • Object matching rules must use schema properties with read-access. Write-only schema properties are not suitable for identification of system objects.

  • Schema propertyClosed that are only used for identifying system objects are not mapped by default.
  • SchemaClosed properties used to identify system objects must contain a value. They cannot be empty.
