Specifying a Schedule

Specifying a Schedule

SynchronizationClosed is started using scheduled process plans. A scheduled process plan is added once a start up configuration is assigned to a schedule. Use schedules to define executing times for synchronization.

NOTES: Synchronization can only be started if the synchronization project is enabled.

IMPORTANT: As long as synchronization is running, you must not start another synchronization for the same target system. This applies especially, if the same synchronization objects would be processed.

If another synchronization is started with another start up configuration, that addresses same target system, it may lead to synchronization error or loss of data. Plan your start times carefully. If possible, specify your start times so that synchronization does not overlap.

To assign an existing schedule to a start up configuration

  1. Select the category Configuration | Start up configurations.
  2. Select a start up configuration in the document view and click Edit....
  3. Select a schedule from the Schedule menu.

    All active schedules assigned to the table JobAutoStart are available for selection.

  4. Click OK.

One Identity Manager specifies a process plan when changes are committed to the One Identity Manager database. This process plan starts the synchronizing process.

NOTE: You can manage existing schedules with Designer.

Properties of a Schedule

Properties of a Schedule

Enter the following properties for a schedule.

Table 62: Schedule Properties
Property Meaning

Name

Schedule ID. Translate the given text using the button.

Description

Detailed description of the schedule. Translate the given text using the button.

Enabled

Specifies whether the schedule is enabled or not.

NOTE: Only active schedules are executed.

Time zones

Unique identifier for the time zone that is used for executing the schedule. Select either "Universal Time Code" or one of the time zones.

NOTE: When you add a new schedule, the time zone is preset to that of the client from which you started the Synchronization EditorClosed.

Start (date)

The day on which the schedule should be run for the first time.

Validity period

Period within which the schedule is executed.

  • If the schedule will be run for an unlimited period, select the option Unlimited duration.
  • To set a validity period, select the option Limited duration and enter the day the schedule will be run for the last time in End (date).

Occurs

Interval in which the task is executed. Valid interval types are "Hourly", "Daily", "Weekly", "Monthly" and "Yearly".

Specify the exact weekday for the interval type "Weekly". Specify the day of the month (1st - 31st) for the interval type "Monthly". Specify the day of the year (1 - 366) for the interval type "Yearly".

NOTE: Schedules that have the sub-interval "31" and interval type "monthly" are run on the "31st of the month". The task is, therefore, only run in months with 31 days. The same is true of the interval type "yearly" and the sub-interval "366".

Start time

Fixed start time for the interval types "daily", "weekly", "monthly" and "yearly". Enter the time in local format for the chosen time zone.

The start time for the interval type "Hourly" is calculated from the rate of occurrence and the interval type.

Repeat every

Rate of occurrence for executing the schedule within the selected time interval. Select at least one weekday for the interval type "Weekly".

Setting up Base Objects

Setting up Base Objects

Base objects contain data about the target system to be synchronized, its system connection and the synchronization server. Base objectClosed form a basis for provisioning changes in the target system. A base object is, for example, a concrete Active Directory domain from the One Identity Manager database. The connection parameters for logging into a target system are assigned through a variable set. In addition, the synchronization server is declared in the base object.

Base objects are required for provisioning processes of all target systems that are connected by default to One Identity Manager. You cannot normally specify a base object for provisioning with database connectors and the CSV connectorClosed. In this case, assignment of one base table and the synchronization server is sufficient. Only one synchronization project can be set up in the One Identity Manager database per base object.

If the synchronization project was creating using a default project template, a base object is added. You can edit this base object and create more base objects. If the synchronization project was created without a project template, no base object is set up.

NOTE: You cannot add base objects until the synchronization project has been permanently saved in the database.
