Use the project wizard to set up a synchronization project for initial synchronization of a target system. You can use this synchronization project to load target system objects into the One Identity Manager database. These objects can be edited with One Identity Manager tools. You must customize synchronization configuration in order to compare the database with the target system regularly and to synchronize changes. You can configure a synchronization project such that the necessary information about the direction of synchronization, objects to synchronize and the property mapping rules to be applied, is made available when synchronization starts.
Edit the target system connection scope and the One Identity Manager database connection to specify which target system and database object are handled by synchronization. To prevent data inconsistencies, define the same scope in both systems. If no scope is defined, all objects will be synchronized.
Use variables to set up a synchronization project which can be used for several different target systems. For this, connection parameters for logging onto target systems are stored as variables.
Before activating a synchronization project, check the consistency of the synchronization configuration. The consistency check detects configuration errors which would lead to errors during synchronization. The synchronization project cannot be activated until the configuration error are corrected.
The consistency check amongst others whether:
To check consistency the loaded synchronization project
Once you have collected all the data in the synchronization project you require for synchronizing from the One Identity Manager database to a target system, you must activate the project. This optimizes the size of the synchronization project. Data is removed which is not required, for example, unused schema types. SynchronizationThe process of comparing data between One Identity Manager and a target system. Objects and their properties are compared by fixed rules. Synchronization results in the identical data situation in the target system and One Identity Manager database. can be run after activating.
|Tip: To prevent synchronization errors, run a consistency check before activating.|
|The synchronization project is activated.|
|The synchronization project is deactivated.|
To activate the loaded synchronization project
An activated synchronization project can only be edited to a limited extend. The schema in the synchronization project must be updated if schema modifications are required. The synchronization project is deactivated in this case and can be edited again.
Furthermore, the synchronization project must be deactivated if synchronization should not be started by any means (not even manually).
To deactivate the loaded synchronization project
SynchronizationThe process of comparing data between One Identity Manager and a target system. Objects and their properties are compared by fixed rules. Synchronization results in the identical data situation in the target system and One Identity Manager database. is started using scheduled process plans. It is possible to start synchronization manually in the Synchronization EditorOne Identity Manager tool for configuring target system synchronization.. You can simulate synchronization beforehand to estimate synchronization results and discover errors in the synchronization configuration. If synchronization was terminated unexpectedly, you must reset the start information to be able to restart synchronization.
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.
