Master Data for a Job Server

NOTE: All editing options are also available in Designer under Base Data | Installation | Job server.

NOTE: More properties may be available depending on which modules are installed.
Table 22: Job Server Properties

Property

Meaning

Server Job server name.
Full server name Full server name in accordance with DNS syntax.

Example:

<Name of servers>.<Fully qualified domain name>

Target system Computer account target system.
Language Language of the server.
Server is cluster Specifies whether the server maps a cluster.
Server belongs to cluster Cluster to which the server belongs.

NOTE: The properties Server is cluster and Server belongs to cluster are mutually exclusive.
IP address (IPv6) Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) server address.
IP address (IPv4) Internet protocol version 4 (IPv4) server address.
Copy process (source server) Permitted copying methods that can be used when this server is the source of a copy action. At present, only copy methods that support the Robocopy and rsync programs are supported.

If no method is given, the One Identity Manager Service determines the operating system of the server during runtime. Replication is then performed with the Robocopy program between servers with a Windows operating system or with the rsync program between servers with a Linux operating system. If the operating systems of the source and destination servers differ, it is important that the right copy method is applied for successful replication. A copy method is chosen that supports both servers.

Copy process (target server) Permitted copying methods that can be used when this server is the destination of a copy action.
Coding Character set coding that is used to write files to the server.
Parent Job server Name of the parent Job server.
Executing server Name of the executing server. The name of the server that exists physically and where the processes are handled.

This input is evaluated when One Identity Manager Service is automatically updated. If the server is handling several queues the process steps are not supplied until all the queues that are being processed on the same server have completed their automatic update.

Queue Name of the queue to handle the process steps. Each One Identity Manager Service within the network must have a unique queue identifier. The process steps are requested by the job queue using exactly this queue name. The queue identifier is entered in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file.
Server operating system Operating system of the server. This input is required to resolve the path name for replicating software profiles. The values Win32, Windows, Linux and Unix are permitted. If no value is specified, Win32 is used.
Service account data One Identity Manager Service user account information. In order to replicate between non-trusted systems (non-trusted domains, Linux server) the One Identity Manager Service user information has to be declared for the servers in the database. This means that the service account, the service account domain and the service account password have to be entered for the server.
One Identity Manager Service installed Specifies whether a One Identity Manager Service is installed on this server. This option is enabled by the procedure QBM_PJobQueueLoad the moment the queue is called for the first time.

The option is not automatically removed. If necessary, you can reset this option manually for servers whose queue is no longer enabled.

Stop One Identity Manager Service Specifies whether the One Identity Manager Service has stopped. If this option is set for the Job server, the One Identity Manager Service does not process any more tasks.

You can make the service start and stop with the appropriate administrative permissions in the program "Job Queue Info". For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Process Monitoring and Troubleshooting Guide.

No automatic software update Specifies whether to exclude the server from automatic software updating.

NOTE: Servers must be manually updated if this option is set.
Software update running Specifies whether a software update is currently being executed.
Server function Server functionality in One Identity Manager. One Identity Manager processes are handled depending on the server function.

Specifying Server Functions

NOTE: All editing options are also available in Designer under Base Data | Installation | Job server.

The server function defines the functionality of a server in One Identity Manager. One Identity Manager processes are handled depending on the server function.

NOTE: More server functions may be available depending on which modules are installed.
Table 23: Permitted server functions

Server function

Remark

Update Server

This server executes automatic software updating of all other servers. The server requires a direct connection to the database server that One Identity Manager database is installed on. The server can execute SQL tasks.

The server with the installed One Identity Manager database, is labeled with this functionality during initial installation of the schema.

SQL processing server

The server can execute SQL tasks. Several SQL processing servers can be set up to spread the load of SQL processes. The system distributes the generated SQL processes throughout all the Job servers with this server function.

CSV script server

The server can process CSV files using the ScriptComponent process component.

One Identity Manager Service installed

Server on which a One Identity Manager Service is installed.

SMTP host

Server from which One Identity Manager Service sends email notifications. Prerequisite for sending mails using One Identity Manager Service is SMTP host configuration.

Default report server

Server on which reports are generated.

Universal Cloud Interface connector The server can connect to the Universal Cloud Interface Module.

Cloud Target Systems

A cloud target system corresponds to a cloud application in the Universal Cloud Interface.

NOTE: Use One Identity Manager set ups the cloud target system in the Synchronization Editor database.

To edit a cloud system's master data

  1. Select the category Cloud Target Systems | Basic configuration data | Cloud target systems.
  2. Select the target system in the result list. Select Change master data.
  3. Edit the target system type master data.
  4. Save the changes.

Tip: You can also edit cloud target system properties in Cloud Target Systems | <target system>.

General Master Data for a Cloud Target System

Enter the following master data for a cloud target system.

Table 24: Cloud target system master data

Property

Description

Cloud target system

Name of the target system.

Canonical name

Name of the target system conforming with DNS syntax.

target system name.parent target system name.master system name

Example: DHW2k01.Testlab.com

Distinguished name

Cloud target system's distinguished name. This distinguished name is used to form distinguished names for child objects. If the target system does not supply any distinguished names, you can enter the target system identifier here, for example.

Syntax example: DC = <target system>

Display name

Name that is displayed in the One Identity Manager tools for the target system.

Account definition (initial)

Initial account definition for creating user accounts. This account definition is used if automatic assignment of employees to user accounts is used for this cloud target system and user accounts should be created which are already managed (Linked configured state). The account definition's default manage level is applied.

User accounts are only linked to the employee (Linked) if no account definition is given. This is the case on initial synchronization, for example.

Target system managers

Application role in which target system managers are specified. The target system managers only modify the cloud target system objects assigned to them. Therefore, each cloud target system can have a different target system manager assigned to it.

Select the One Identity Manager application role whose members are responsible for administration of this cloud target system. Use the button to add a new application role.

Synchronized by

Type of synchronization through which the data is synchronized between the target system and One Identity Manager. You can no longer change the synchronization type once objects for this target system are present in One Identity Manager.

One Identity Manager is used when you create a cloud target system with the Synchronization Editor.

Table 25: Permitted values
Value Synchronization by Provisioned by
One Identity Manager Universal Cloud Interface connector Universal Cloud Interface connector
No synchronization none none

NOTE: If you select No synchronization, you can define custom processes to exchange data between One Identity Manager and the target system.

Description

Spare text box for additional explanation.

Manual provisioning

Specifies whether changes to cloud objects in the One Identity Manager database are automatically provisioned in the cloud application. If this option is not set, processes for automatic provisioning of object modifications are configured.

Set this option, if object modifications are not allowed to be published automatically in the cloud application. Use the Web Portal to transfer the changes to the cloud application. For more detailed information about provisioning object modifications, see the One Identity Manager Administration Guide for Connecting to Cloud Applications.

IMPORTANT: If you set this option, ensure that data, using regular and frequent synchronization,

  • between the Universal Cloud Interface Module and the cloud application and
  • between the modules Universal Cloud Interface and Cloud Systems Management

is kept consistent!

User account deletion not permitted Specifies whether user accounts in the cloud target system can be deleted. If this option is set, user account can only be disabled.
