At certain points you can define custom filter conditions. The filter conditions are formulated like a condition (WHERE clause) for a database query.
You can enter database queries directly or put them together with a wizard. Use and to switch to the appropriate view.
You can use variables in your condition definitions. Variable must be masked.
NOTE: If the condition contains a dollar sign, which is not labeling a variable, it must be masked with $.
Example: '300 $$' compared to the value '300 $'
|TIP: If you enter a condition directly, you can access predefined variables with the button.|
Each condition is displayed in a special control in the wizard. The controls contain connection points to logically join single conditions or delete single conditions. The connection points are set if you mouse over the edge of the respective control.
Figure 2: Wizard for Entering Filters
To create a filter with a wizard
This inserts a control for the first condition.
The properties for filtering are listed. You can also define other properties and use variables.
Use the comparison operators =, <>, <, >, <=, >= and like to define conditions.
You can enter a string for a comparison value or select a property from the list. You can also use variables.
||NOTE: To be able to switch to this input field at a later date, choose Input field from the list.|
The connection points appear.
This adds a new control for the next condition.
||Note:To remove a control, select the connection point, Delete.|
You can apply scripts at various points in the synchronization project; for example, when defining the schema properties or when you define data operations for system connection through the native database connector. You can enter scripts in C# or Visual Basic .NET depending on script's language, which was specified for the synchronization project.
You write scripts in a special editing dialog box. It has an advanced edit mode which provides additional actions.

One Identity Manager provides code snippets for you to use as templates.
To insert a code snippet
Click to quit extended editing mode.
Additional input aids are provided for creating script code.
The input fields support syntax highlighting depending on the syntax type.
Auto-completion can be used when creating script code. The amount of scripted code to enter is reduced by displaying the names of properties or functions that can be used. Automatic completion is called with the key combination CTRL + SPACE at the appropriate point in the editor. The contents of the list is determined by the key words in the code.
You can insert code snippets using the following options:
|NOTE: If you select the code snippet using a shortcut or the icon, a short description and the shortcut name is displayed in a tooltip.|
|TIP: You can use custom code snippets. To do this, create a directory CustomSnippets in the One Identity Manager installation directory to store the code snippets. Use Visual Studio documentation to develop your own code snippets.|
Different wizards are run to add new objects like synchronization projects, mappings or workflows with the Synchronization EditorOne Identity Manager tool for configuring target system synchronization.. The data you enter is temporarily saved. Changes to these objects are also saved only temporarily.
To save changes to the synchronization project permanently
- OR -
One Identity Manager compresses the schemas when the synchronization project is saved for the first time. This removes schema data from the synchronization projects, which is not required in the synchronization configuration. This can speed up loading the synchronization project.
To configure synchronization with a target system, One Identity Manager must load the data from the target system. One Identity Manager communicates directly with target system to do this.
The remote connection server and the workstation must be in the same Active Directory domain.
To permit remote access to a target system
The plugin requires the following parameters:
|Authentication method||ADSGroup||Method with which incoming queries can be authenticated.
Permitted values: ADGroup
|Permitted AD group||Distinguished name or object SID of the Active Directory group whose members are permitted to use a remote connection. This parameter is only required for the authentication methods "ADGroup".|
|Port||2880||Port for reaching the server.|
||NOTE: Authentication of a remote connection can only be done through an Active Directory group.|
For more information, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.
For more information, see the administration guides for connecting target systems.
|TIP: The remote connection server requires the same configuration (with respect to the installed software) as the synchronization server. Use the synchronization as remote connection server at the same time, by simply installing the RemoteConnectPlugin as well.|
To edit a Job server
Select a minimum of the following server functions:
Select at least the following roles:
For more information, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide and the administration guides for connecting target systems.
Remote access may be necessary, if:
One Identity Manager requires a connection to target system, for example, to update the target system schema, to define a scope or to test the object matching rules. A message appears if you cannot connect to the target system when editing the synchronization configuration. Then you can decide whether you want to connect through a remote connection server, temporarily. In this case, a remote connection dialog opens.
To set up a remote connection for a new synchronization project.
The remote connection stays connected as long as the project wizard is open.
To set up a remote connection for an existing synchronization project.
This opens the remote connection dialog.
This sets up the remote connection. It stays up as long as the synchronization project is open in the Synchronization Editor,
|Select remote connection server automatically||Select this option if you want the remote connection server to be selected automatically.|
|Job server||In the menu, select the Job server you want for One Identity Manager communicating with the target system.
All Job servers are displayed that are marked with One Identity Manager Service installed.
|Select remote connection server manually||Select this option if you do not want the remote connection server to be selected automatically because, for example, the server name cannot be resolved.|
|Server||Enter the full server name or the server's IP address.|
|Port||RemoteConnectPlugin uses the port 2880.|
