Configuring the synchronization log

All the information, tips, warnings, and errors that occur during synchronizationClosed are recorded in the synchronization log. You can configure the type of information to record separately for each system connection.

To configure the content of the synchronization log

  1. Edit the system connection properties.

  2. To configure the synchronization log for target system connection, select the Configuration | Target systemClosed category in Synchronization EditorClosed.

    - OR -

    To configure the synchronization log for the database connection, select the Configuration | Synchronization Editor connection category in One Identity Manager.

  3. Select the General view and click Configure.

  4. Select the Synchronization log view and set Create synchronization log.

  5. Enable the data to be logged.

    NOTE: Some content generates a particularly large volume of log data!

    The synchronization log should only contain data required for error analysis and other analyzes.

  6. Click OK.

Synchronization logs are stored for a fixed length of time.

To modify the retention period for synchronization logs

  • In the Designer, enable the DPR | Journal | LifeTime configuration parameter and enter the maximum retention period.

Editing the scope

In the general scope, you can specify system objects to be handled by synchronizationClosed. This allows you to limit the number of objects to synchronize. If no general scope is defined, all objects in the connected system are synchronized.

In the reference scopeClosed, you define which system objects are loaded for the reference resolution. If no reference scope is defined, the general scope is also used for the reference resolution.

TIP: If a general scope is defined, but you want all system objects of a target system type to be available, create an empty reference scope. To do this, simply enter the display name of the reference scope. This means that no scope is calculated in the reference resolution.

If the synchronization projectClosed was creating using a default project templateClosed, a scope is defined. You may edit this scope. A scope is not define if the synchronization project was created without a project template.

NOTE: To avoid data inconsistencies, define the same scope in both of the connected systems.
