Base objects contain data about the target system to be synchronizedThe process of comparing data between One Identity Manager and a target system. Objects and their properties are compared by fixed rules. Synchronization results in the identical data situation in the target system and One Identity Manager database., its system connection, and the synchronization server. Base objects form the basis for provisioning changes in the target system and synchronizing single objects. A base object is, for example, a specific Active Directory domain from the One Identity Manager database. The connection parameters for logging into a target system are assigned through a variable set. In addition, the synchronization server is declared in the base object.
Base objects are required for provisioning processes and single object synchronization of all the target systems that are connected by default to the One Identity Manager. You cannot normally specify a specific base object for provisioning and single object synchronization with database connectors or the CSV connectorSystem connector which allow data to be imported from CSV files.. In this case, assignment of one base table and the synchronization server is sufficient. You can only set up one synchronization projectA collection of all data required for synchronizing and provisioning a target system. Connection data, schema classes and properties, mappingsList of object matching rules and property mapping rules which map the schema properties of two connected systems to one another., and synchronization workflows all belongs to this. in the One Identity Manager database per base object.
The base object is used to determine which provisioning workflow is suited to an object in the One Identity Manager database. In order to find the correct workflow for provisioning object modifications or for single object synchronization, you can only set up one synchronization project per base object.
If the synchronization project was creating using a default project templateTemplate used by the project wizard to create a preconfigured synchronization project., a base object is added. You can edit this base object and create more base objects. If the synchronization project was created without a project template, no base object is set up.
