Synchronization analysis

SynchronizationClosed results are summarized in the synchronization log. You can specify the extent of the synchronization log for each system connection individually. One Identity Manager provides several reports in which the synchronization results are organized under different criteria.

Toolbars in the log view

The navigation view in the Logs category has its own toolbar.

How to display synchronization logs

To display a synchronizationClosed log

  1. Open the synchronization projectClosed in the Synchronization EditorClosed.

  2. Select the Logs category.

  3. Click in the navigation view toolbar.

    Logs for all completed synchronization runs are displayed in the navigation view.

  4. Select a log by double-clicking it.

    An analysis of the synchronization is shown as a report. You can save the report.

To display a provisioning log

  1. Open the synchronization project in the Synchronization Editor.

  2. Select the Logs category.

  3. Click in the navigation view toolbar.

    Logs for all completed provisioning processes are displayed in the navigation view.

  4. Select a log by double-clicking it.

    An analysis of the provisioning is shown as a report. You can save the report.

The log is marked in color in the navigation view. This mark shows you the status of the synchronization/provisioning.

TIP: The logs are also displayed in the Manager under the <target system> | synchronization log category.

Target system synchronization

Objects, which do not exist in the target system, can be marked as outstanding in One Identity Manager by synchronizingClosed. This prevents objects being deleted because of an incorrect data situation or an incorrect synchronization configuration.

Outstanding objects:

  • Cannot be edited in One Identity Manager.

  • Are ignored by subsequent synchronizations.

  • Are ignored by inheritance calculations.

This means, all memberships and assignments remain intact until the outstanding objects have been processed.

Start target system synchronizationClosed to do this.

To post-process outstanding objects

  1. Start the Manager.
  2. Select the <target system type> | Target systemClosed synchronization: <target system type> | <table> category.


    To display object properties of an outstanding object

    1. Select the object on the target system synchronization form.
    2. Open the context menu and click Show object.
  1. Select the objects you want to rework. Multi-select is possible.

  2. Click on one of the following icons in the form toolbar to execute the respective method.

    Table 71: Methods for handling outstanding objects





    The object is immediately deleted from the One Identity Manager database. Deferred deletion is not taken into account. The Outstanding label is removed from the object.

    Indirect memberships cannot be deleted.


    The object is added to the target system. The Outstanding label is removed from the object.

    The method triggers the HandleOutstanding event. This runs a target system specific process that triggers the provisioning process for the object.


    • The table containing the object can be published.

    • The target system connector has write access to the target system.

    • A custom process is set up for provisioning the object.


    The Outstanding label is removed for the object.

  3. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

NOTE: By default, the selected objects are processed in parallel, which speeds up execution of the selected method. If an error occurs during processing, the action is stopped and all changes are discarded.

Bulk processing of objects must be disabled if errors are to be localized, which means the objects are processed sequentially. Failed objects are named in the error message. All changes that were made up until the error occurred are saved.

To disable bulk processing

  • In the form's toolbar, click to disable bulk processing.

For more detailed information about post-processing outstanding objects from connected target systems, see the target system connection guides.
