Additional Information for Experts

NOTE: The following functions should only be carried out by experienced Synchronization EditorClosed users and system administrators.

The properties and processes described here are only available in expert mode.

IMPORTANT: Changes to properties described here may affect system performance.

Check the effects on system performance of you environment before you change properties in expert mode.

To enable export mode

  1. Select the menu Database | Settings....
  2. Enable Enable expert mode.
  3. Click OK.

Error log

Error log

In expert mode, you can show the error log. In the error log, you can view all the errors that have occurred since the program started up. The error log is reinitialized when the Synchronization EditorClosed restarts.

To display items from error log

  • Enable expert mode.

    By default, the error log is displayed in the lower section of the SynchronizationClosed Editor.

For more detailed information about functions in the error log, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

Additional Properties of a Mapping

Enter the following additional property for a mapping when you are in expert mode.

Table 70: Properties of a Mapping
Property Meaning
Base mappingClosed

Property mapping rules can be inherited from a existing mapping. Select a mapping from the menu for this. Inherited property mapping rules can only be editing in the base mapping. Other property mapping rules can be added.

This is only visible in expert mode.

Extended Properties for Start Up Configuration

In expert mode, the tab Advanced is displayed in the start up configuration dialog.

Table 71: Extended Properties for Start Up Configuration
Property Description
Failure handling mode

Specifies how failed objects are handled during synchronization.

  • Repeat (default)

    SynchronizationClosed is repeated until the failed objects do not yield any changes.

    Advantage: This results in a full synchronization. Certain, highly complex hierarchical structures cannot only be synchronized in this mode.

    Disadvantage: Synchronization in this mode take considerably longer once failed object arise.

  • Ignore

    Synchronization ignores failed objects.

    Advantage: Synchronization does not take longer because of failed objects that cannot be corrected by repeating (data error).

    Disadvantage: Errors, which can occur through complex data dependencies, are no longer corrected, The synchronization results may therefore not be complete.

NOTE: Repetitions of failed objects means a reduced synchronization.

It makes sense to ignore failed objects if synchronization with this start up configuration is run frequently because the failed objects are processed again by the next synchronization. This also achieves full synchronization results and at the same time reduces the runtime of each synchronization.

Reload threshold

Specifies the maximum number of properties that can be loaded by synchronization to prevent partitioned reloading. You can increase this value to accelerate synchronization of target systems with small mappings. However, more memory is required.

The reload threshold can be specified separately for each synchronization step.

Partition size Specifies the number of objects and object pairs the can be processed at the same time. To prevent frequent reloading and to speed up synchronization, you can increase the size of the partition. However, more memory is required.
Bulk level

Controls internal bulk processing of data For example, this is used to calculate how much object data is buffered in main memory. Depending on the operations to be run, a multiple of the value maybe applied.

Higher values speed up processing but require more memory. Smaller value reduce memory usage. This value should only be reduced if synchronizing causes memory problems.

Debug mode Sets debug mode. Processing steps are handled sequentially in debug mode. This makes it much easier to find errors. Only set this option for finding errors!

TIP: If memory problems occur, you should examine the reload threshold, partition size and bulk level together and adjust them.

The reload threshold, partition size and the bulk level also depend on how the performance/memory factor is configured in the synchronization steps. The performance/memory factor specifies the percentage with which the reload threshold, partition size and bulk level are applied to an object type.
