Creating Workflows with the Workflow Wizard

Creating Workflows with the Workflow Wizard

The project wizard creates a synchronization workflow for initially loading the target system objects into the One Identity Manager database. You can use the workflow wizard to set up more workflows. The workflow wizard specifies workflows for the direction of synchronization "target system".

To create a workflow with the workflow wizard

  1. Select the category Workflows.
  2. Click in the navigation view.

    This starts the workflow wiizard.

    Click Next.

  3. Enter the following workflow properties
    Table 47: General WorkflowClosed Properties
    Property Description
    Display name Enter a display name for the workflow.
    Description Spare text box for additional explanation.

    Click Next.

  4. Select the mapping to be handled by the workflow.

    All mappings are enabled by default.

    To de-select a mapping, double-click on .

    To select a mapping, double-click on .

    NOTE: The column Part of hierarchy shows which mappings represent parts of the object hierarchy. To prevent errors, all mappings, which map the object hierarchy, must be entirely selected or entirely de-selected.
  5. Specify the mappings for which revision filtering is permitted.

    RevisionClosed filtering is permitted for all mappings, by default.

    Click Next.

  6. Specify synchronization behavior for the object pair whose properties have changed.
    1. Select the processing method to be executed in the One Identity Manager database in Database method column.

      - OR -

    2. Select the processing method to be executed in the target system in the Target system method column.

    Click Next.

  7. Specify synchronization behavior for the object that only exist in the One Identity Manager database.
    1. Select the processing method to be executed in the One Identity Manager database in Database method column.

      - OR -

    2. Select the processing method to be executed in the target system in the Target system method column.

    Click Next.

  8. Specify synchronization behavior for the object that only exist in the target system.
    1. Select the processing method to be executed in the One Identity Manager database in Database method column.

      - OR -

    2. Select the processing method to be executed in the target system in the Target system method column.

    Click Next.

  9. Click Close to end the workflow wizard.

    This creates the workflow. You can check the properties of the Workflow and the synchronization steps with the workflow editor and rework them.

Note: A disabled synchronization step is added if no processing methods have been specified for a mapping.
