Variable properties

NOTE: Variable labeled as system variables cannot be modified.

Enter the following properties for a variable in the default variable set.

Table 59: Variable properties
Property Description

Using scripts in variables

You can write scripts for finding variable values. You can use scripts, for example, for reading a system user's password from an external password management system.

NOTE: The External password management option must be set for a system user in order to use their password from an external password management system. For detailed information about editing system users, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

To create a script variable.

  1. Create the variable in the default variable set.
  2. Select the variable and click in the toolbar.
  3. In the Value input field, click Edit.
  4. Enter the script and click OK.
  5. Save the changes.

In this way, you can convert existing variables into script variables.

To convert script variables into simple variables.

  1. Select the script variable in the default variable set.
  2. Click in the toolbar.
  3. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

Setting up start up configurations

A start up configuration contains all the required properties and options for a tangible synchronizationClosed. This specifies which synchronization configuration components (workflows, mappingsClosed, variable sets) should be used for synchronization. Synchronization is started with a schedule. Different start up configurations can be set up for different synchronization targets.

If the synchronization projectClosed was creating using a default project templateClosed, a start up configuration is added. You can edit this start up configuration and create new start up configurations. If the synchronization project was created without a project template, start up configuration is set up.

How to create start up configurations

To create a start up configuration

  1. In the Synchronization EditorClosed, select the Configuration | Start up configurations category.
  2. Click in the document view toolbar.
  3. Edit the start up configuration's master data.
  4. Click OK.
