How to delete schema classes

NOTE: Custom schema classes, which are not in use, can be deleted.

To delete a schema class

  1. Remove the schema class from all mappingsClosed in which they are used.

    For more information, see How to edit a mapping.

  2. Edit the system connection properties.

    For more information, see How to edit system connection properties.

  3. Open the SchemaClosed classes view.
  4. Select the schema class in the schema overview and click in the toolbar.

    If the schema class is still in use, the location is displayed.

  5. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.
TIP: Compress the schema to remove unnecessary schema classes from the target schema or the One Identity Manager schema from the synchronization projectClosed. For more information, see How to remove unnecessary project data.

Customizing the synchronization configuration

Having used the project wizard to set up a synchronization projectClosed for initial synchronization of a target system, you can use the synchronization project to load target system objects into the One Identity Manager database. These objects can be edited with One Identity Manager tools. You must customize synchronization configuration in order to compare the database with the target system regularly and to synchronize changes. You can configure a synchronization project such that the necessary information about the direction of synchronizationClosed, objects to synchronize, and the property mapping rules to be applied, is made available when synchronization starts.

Edit the target system connection scope and the One Identity Manager database connection to specify which target system and database object are handled by synchronization. To prevent data inconsistencies, define the same scope in both systems. If no scope is defined, all objects will be synchronized.

  • You can use variables to create generally applicable synchronization configurations that contain the necessary information about the synchronization objects when synchronization starts. Variables can be implemented in base objects, schema classes, or processing methods, for example.

    Use variables to set up a synchronization project for synchronizing different target systems. For this, connection parameters for logging onto target systems are stored as variables.

  • Checking the consistency of the synchronization configuration

    Before activating a synchronization projectClosed, check the consistency of the synchronization configuration. The consistency check detects configuration errors which would lead to errors during synchronization. The synchronization project cannot be activated until the configuration error are corrected.

    The consistency check amongst others whether:

    • All mandatory properties are mapped through property mapping rules.
    • Dependencies can be automatically resolved in workflows.
    • Different schema classes of a schema type are differentiated from one another by filters.

    To check consistency the loaded synchronization project

    1. Select the General view on the start page.
    2. Click on Verify project.

    Activating the synchronization project

    Once you have collected all the data in the synchronization projectClosed you require for synchronizing from the One Identity Manager database to a target system, you must activate the project. This optimizes the size of the synchronization project. Data is removed which is not required, for example, unused schema types. Synchronization can be run after activating.

    Table 66: Meaning of icons on the start page
    Icon Meaning
    The synchronization project is activated.
    The synchronization project is deactivated.

    To activate the loaded synchronization project

    1. Select General on the start page.

    2. Click Activate project.

      NOTE: This runs a consistency check. If consistency errors occurs, a message appears. You can decide whether the project is activated or not.

      Check the errors before you use the synchronization project. In the General view, click Verify project.

    An activated synchronization project can only be edited to a limited extend. The schema in the synchronization project must be updated if schema modifications are required. The synchronization project is deactivated in this case and can be edited again.

    Furthermore, the synchronization project must be deactivated if synchronization should not be started by any means (not even manually).

    To deactivate the synchronization project

    1. Open the synchronization project in the Synchronization EditorClosed.

    2. Select the General view on the start page.

    3. Click Deactivate project.
