Setting up synchronization workflows

The synchronizationClosed sequence is controlled by a workflow. Use workflows to combine the synchronization stepsClosed to be executed. The number of synchronization projectsClosed can be limited by using revision filters and quotas. You can set up different workflows within a synchronization project which map different purposes of the synchronization.

Define workflows:

  • Direction of synchronizationClosed
  • Number and order of synchronization steps
  • Objects to compare (revision filter)

Default workflows for target system synchronizationClosed are added if the synchronization project was created with a default project templateClosed. You can edit these workflows with the workflow editor and set up new workflows. If the synchronization project was created without a project template, no workflows are set up.

Toolbars in the workflow editor

Both workflow and navigation views have their own toolbars.
