Identity Manager 8.1 - Release Notes

Applying patches to synchronization projects

CAUTION: Patches do not change customizations in synchronization projects. This mean that conflicts may occur if patches are applied to synchronization projects, which have been customized. This may cause loss of data.

Before you apply a patch

  1. Read the patch description to decide whether it provides the necessary improvements for the synchronization project.
  2. Check whether conflicts with customizations could occur.
  3. Create a backup of the database so that you can restore the original state if necessary.
  4. Deactivate the synchronization project.

NOTE: If you have set up synchronization projects for connecting cloud application in the Universal Cloud Interface, update the target system schema in these synchronization projects before you apply the patches. Use the Synchronization Editor.

To apply patches

  1. Open the synchronization project in the Synchronization Editor.

  2. Select Edit | Update synchronization project... from the menu.

  3. In Available patches, select the milestone you want to implement.

    In Details - Installation summary, all dependent patches are displayed in order of installation.

  4. Click Apply selected patches.

  5. Enter any user input as prompted.

  6. (Optional) In Available patches, select the patches for new functions that you want to apply. Multi-select is possible.

    In Details - Installation summary, all patches are displayed in order of installation.

  7. Click Apply selected patches.

  8. Enter any user input as prompted.

  9. Use the patch log to check whether customization need to be reworked.

  10. If required, rework customizations in the synchronization configuration.

  11. Run a consistency check.

  12. Simulate the synchronization.

  13. Activate the synchronization project.

  14. Save the changes.

NOTE: A patch does not take effect until the changes associated with it are saved in the database. If consistency check or simulation errors occur that cannot be corrected, you can dismiss the patch changes by reloading the synchronization project without saving the changes.

For more detailed information about updating synchronization projects, see the One Identity Manager Target System Synchronization Reference Guide.
