Specifying Test Options

Before you run a consistency check you should set the test options you require.

To specify test options

  1. Select in the Consistency Editor toolbar.
  2. Enable the tests you want to run and customize them if required.
  3. Click OK.

Icon Meaning
Tests are grouped by themes.
Tests are grouped by types (database, tables , objects).
Tests are displayed as a list.
Tests are grouped by module association.
Tests are displayed with severity level "Error".
Tests are displayed with severity level "Warning".
Tests are displayed with severity level "Information".

Test options are separated into test at database level, table level and object level. There are already predefined tests available. Use user defined tests to run your own tests. You can use the scripts from the script library for these tests. All the scripts from the library that use the following calling syntax are available:

Database test:

Public Sub Methodname (ByRef con As IConnection)

Table test:

Public Sub Methodenname (ByRef dbTable As ITableDef)

Object test:

Public Sub Methodname (ByRef dbObject As ISingleDBObject)

Recording Test Results

During the consistency check, the number of tested objects and the test status is updated in the editor’s list view. Once the test has completed, any error messages are outputted to the Consistency Editor error log.

Repairing Errors

NOTE: This Consistency Editor repair function is only available if the current user is authorized to use the function "Option to start automatic consistency check repair function (Common_ConsistencyCheck_Repair)".

The button Repair appears in the Consistency Editor error log if it is possible to repair the error automatically.

To repair incorrect data

  • Select the error in the Consistency Editor log.

    TIP: Use SHIFT + CLICK or CTRL + CLICK to select multiple entries for repair.

  • Start the error correction with Repair.

    The error is corrected directly in the connected to the database. Subsequent data changes are made with the One Identity Manager Service.

NOTE: When you repair templates, dependent objects may also be changed when the template is rerun. In certain circumstances, this might in result in a large number of objects being changed, saved and even processes being generated.

Working with Change Labels

Define change labels under which changes are grouped together in order to swap data between development and test databases as well as the productive database.

You can create and edit change labels in different One Identity Manager tools. The method is similar in all tools. Change labels are allocated using different methods depending on the One Identity Manager tool. Changes are normally allocated before or on saving the changes in the database.

Change labels are available in the program "Database Transporter" as export criteria for creating custom configuration packages.

Change labels can contain:

  • Changes to single object properties at a specific point in time

    When you create a custom configuration package, single object properties are added to the transport package. The properties contain the values given at the time they were added.

    IMPORTANT: This is the default process when applying changes in the Designer. If you apply this method, be consistent in booking all changes to the change label when the object is saved. It is not possible to add changes of individual properties to the change label at a later date.

  • Snapshots of an object at a specific point in time, optionally with dependent objects

    When you create a custom configuration package, the object is added to the transport package with all its properties. The properties contain the values given at the time they were added.

  • Reference to an object, optionally with dependent objects

    When you create a custom configuration package, the object is added to the transport package with all its properties. The properties are determined at the time of export.

    IMPORTANT: Object references cannot be grouped together with changes to single properties and snapshots of objects in the same change label. Book object references to their own change labels.
