Show Execution Plan

Show Execution Plan

The execution plan shows all synchronization steps of a workflow in the order in which they will be executed. Dependencies between schema classes are resolved. Thus, additional synchronization steps that are added automatically are also displayed.

To display a workflow execution plan

  1. Select the category Workflows.
  2. Select a workflow in the navigation view.
  3. Click in the workflow view.

    The execution plan is displayed as a report. You can save the report.

Connecting Systems

You connect to the One Identity Manager database when you log into the Synchronization EditorClosed. You connect to the target system with the project wizard. The system connection is automatically set up once One Identity Manager accesses the target system. The icon is displayed in the SynchronizationClosed Editor status bar if a target system is connected.

Other system connection properties are saved in the synchronization project. You can edit these properties in Synchronization Editor.

How to Edit System Connection Properties

How to Edit System Connection Properties

To edit database connection properties.

  1. Select the category Configuration | One Identity Manager connection.

    The sections General, ScopeClosed, Connection parameters and SchemaClosed classes are displayed in the document view with the database connection properties.

  2. To edit general properties of the database connection, select the General view and click Setup....

To edit target system connection properties

  1. Select the category Configuration | Target systems.

    The sections General, Scope, Connection parameters and Schema classes are displayed in the document view with the target system connection properties.

  2. To edit general properties of the target system connection, select the General view and click Setup....

System Connection Properties

System Connection Properties

The following information about system connections is mapped.

Table 54: System Connection Properties
Property Description
System connection Default display value for the system connection.

NOTE: If the connection parameters of the connected system differ from the loaded schema, the schema's display name is also displayed. In this case, the schema must be updated before the synchronization project can be used,

Setup... Opens a dialog box for editing the system connection's general properties and configuring the contents of the synchronization log.
Updating Schemas Updates the schema.

The synchronization project is saved before the schema is updated. This allows the existing schema to be reloaded if an error occurs during update.

NOTE: The synchronization is deactivated if the schema of an activated synchronization project is updated. Reactivate the synchronization project to synchronize.
Shrink schema... All schema types of the respective schema, which cannot be used in the synchronization project, are deleted from it. You can select schema type to be retained even though they are not used.
Browse... Start the Target SystemClosed Browser.

Use the target system browser to view the target system data/One Identity Manager database. You can add, change and delete system objects. You can test virtual schema properties.

The variable set selected in the Synchronization EditorClosed's toolbar is used to connect to the target system.

Edit connection... Starts the system connection wizard.

The system connection wizard allows you to edit the connection parameters of the current system connection, for example, if the synchronization server has changed.

NOTE: Certain connection parameters correspond with the loaded schema. If these connection parameters are changed, the schema must be updated in the synchronization project so that synchronization can be configured and run successfully. This is necessary, for example, if the connection to another One Identity Manager database is established, which has a different schema to the connection database.

  • Click Update schema before continuing to edit the synchronization project.
Connection parameter Lists all connection parameters. You can define connection parameter values as variables in order to use one synchronization configuration for synchronizing different target systems.
ScopeClosed Specifies whether a scope is defined. You can edit the scope.
SchemaClosed Classes All schema classes are listed in groups of schema types.
Schema Browser This displays the target system schema with all its schema types and their properties.

The schema browser is only available in expert mode.

Table 55: General Properties of a System Connection
Property Description
Schema Schema display name.
Connection is read-only If this option is set, the system connector only has read access to the target system. Write operations are not executed, only logged. Changes to objects in the One Identity Manager database are not provisioned in the target system.
Retry count Number of attempts at establishing the connection.
Delay between retries Time delay between retry attempts.
Create synchronization log Specifies whether a synchronization log with detailed information about the synchronization object is created.
Data to log Data to be recorded in the synchronization log.
