How to Create Base Objects

How to Create Base Objects

To add a base object using an existing database object

  1. Select the category Configuration | Base objects.
  2. Click in the document view toolbar.
  3. Edit the base objects's master data.
  4. Click OK.

If the base object does not yet exist in the One Identity Manager database, use the wizard to create a base object.

NOTE: The wizard is only available to target systems that are contained in One Identity Manager as default modules. The wizard cannot be used in synchronization projects with the CSV connectorClosed or the native database connector.

To add a base object using a wizard

  1. Select the category Configuration | Base objects.
  2. Click in the document view toolbar.
  3. On the welcome page, click Next..
  4. Specify how the One Identity Manager can access the target system on the System access page.
    • If you have access from the workstation from which you started the Synchronization EditorClosed, do not set anything.
    • If you do have not access from the workstation from which you started the SynchronizationClosed Editor, you can set up a remote connection.

      In this case, set the option Connect using remote connection server and select, under Job serverClosed, the server you want to use for the connection.

  5. Select the system connection for the new base object on the Create system connection page.

    Follow the system connection wizard instructions. For more detailed information about which connection parameter you required, see the administration guide for the respective system.

  6. Select the synchronization server to execute synchronization on the Synchronization serverClosed page.

    If the synchronization server is not declare as a job server in the One Identity Manager database yet, you can add a new job server.

    • Click to add a new job server.
    • Enter a name for the job server and the full server name conforming to DNS syntax.
    • Click OK.

      The synchronization server is declared as job server for the target system in the One Identity Manager database.

      NOTE: Ensure that this server is set up as the synchronization server after saving the synchronization project.
  7. Click Finish to complete the wizard.

The wizard creates a variable set with the given connection parameters. It adds the synchronization base object, for example, the actual Active Directory domain you want to synchronize, as object in the One Identity Manager database.

Table 63: Properties of Base Objects

Property

Description

SynchronizationClosed has no base object

Defines whether a specific base object is required for synchronization.

If this option is set, a specific object cannot be selected from the base table.

Base table

Select the table from which to select the base object, for example, ADSDomain.

Base objectClosed

Select the object from the base table formed by the base object for synchronization and provisioning processes.

Synchronization serverClosed
