Show Scheduled Operations

To show scheduled operations

  • In the Manager menu, click Database | Show deferred operations.

All scheduled operations are shown on the form along with the time at which they are scheduled to be run. If the scheduled run time for an operation has passed or an error occurred when the operation ran, the corresponding entry is marked in red.

Information Meaning
Table Display text of the table to which the record belongs. This is used to group the objects.
Object Object affected by the operation.
Operation Operation that is run for the object.
Time of execution Time at which the operation should be run.
Comment Additional comment on the operation. Click a comment to show the comment in full.
Created by User who created the operation.

To load and display the object for an entry

  • Select the entry from the overview and use

Working in Simulation Mode

CAUTION: Only use simulation mode in exceptional cases! During a simulation, the objects you are editing are locked for other users. Work on individual administration tools may be restricted. Under certain circumstances, the One Identity Manager Service stops running further processes during the simulation phase. Depending on the scope of the changes, the entire One Identity Manager environment can come to a standstill.

The Manager can be switched to simulation mode. In this mode you can first record and analyze the impact of extensive data changes before the changes are finalized.

The following information is recorded during the simulation:

  • Calculation tasks for the DBQueue Processor resulting from the change
  • Trigger changes that result from the change
  • Processes that are generated as a result of the change
  • Objects that are affected by the change
  • Recalculations of compliance rules that result from the change

    To do this, enable the plugins "Identity Audit Simulation" and "Identity Audit Simulation Report" in the program settings.

NOTE: Simulation mode is available only if the current user is authorized to use the program function "Can start database simulation using frontends." (Common_Simulation).

To run a simulation:

  1. Click Database | Start simulation in the Manager menu.
  2. Confirm the security prompt with OK.

    The program switches into simulation mode.

  3. Make your desired changes.
  4. To stop the simulation, click Database | Stop simulation in the Manager from the menu.

    The program switches to standard working mode and shows the simulation log.

NOTE: The icon in the program's status bar and a red status bar indicates that simulation mode is active.

At the end of the simulation, you can save your changes immediately or run them with a time delay. To do this, click Object | Save or Object | Set change time... from the menu.

NOTE: To avoid the system being locked for an extensive time frame, a timer exits simulation mode if a data change is not saved after 5 minutes.

Logging simulation data

When the simulation is stopped, the recorded changes are loaded and shown in the program's document view in the form of a log.

NOTE: When closing the log, after confirming the security prompt, you can either apply the changes immediately or discard the simulation data.

Table 62: Logging simulation data
View Description Displayed information
Overview This gives you an overview of which actions the applied changes will trigger. You can export the simulation data and display the report. Number of applied changes for each action.
DBQueue The DBQueue log shows the following information. You can show/hide the additional information using the context menu. Operation Calculation tasks to be run.
Sort order Sort order to process the calculation task.
Process ID Unique process ID.
Object Unique object ID.
Child object Unique ID of the child object.
Generated process Shows processes and process steps generated during simulation due to the changes. The individual properties of the processes and process steps are also displayed with their actual values. Process Name of the generated process.
Process steps Name of the generated process step.
Property Processes property or process step property.
Value Property value.

Trigger changes

Shows all changes made to objects that have been triggered during the simulation. Table Display text of the table to which the record belongs. This is used to group the objects.
Object Object affected by the change.
Column Column that was changed.
Old value Column value before the change.
New value Column value after the change.
Changed object Shows objects and their properties if they were affected by the changes made during simulation. Table Display text of the table to which the record belongs. This is used to group the objects.
Object Object affected by the change.
Column Column that was changed.
Old value Column value before the change.
New value Column value after the change.
Rule evaluation

During the simulation, the system recalculates all the rules that are affected by the changes. New rule violations and rule violations that no longer apply as a result of the recalculation are displayed.

NOTE: The rules can be simulated and analyzed only if the related plugins "Identity Audit Simulation" and "Identity Audit Simulation Report" are enabled in the program settings.

Employee Employee who has newly violated the rule or is no longer violating the rule for the first time.
Rule violation Type of change (rule no longer violated or new rule violation) and the affected rule.
Description Description of the rule violation.
