Object matching rule details

Enter the following details for an object mappingClosed rule.


Table 44: Object matching ruleClosed details
Detail Description
Rule Types

Select the rule type for a new rule.

Value compare rule Compares the schema property value of the One Identity Manager schema with the value of a target system schema.
Logical Expression Rule

Evaluates the logical connective of several rules.

Use this rule type to identify if you can only identify system objects using several schema properties.

Rule name Name for the rule. The rule name must be unique within a mapping.
Display name Rule display name.
Case sensitive

Specifies whether upper and lowercase are taken into account when system objects are being identified.

Description Text field for additional explanation.

Detail Description
Schema propertyClosed Select the schema properties which uniquely identify the system objects.
Table 46: Additional details of a logical expression rule
Detail Description

Links the existing rules to each other using logical operators. Permitted operators are AND, OR, and NOT as well as brackets.

Syntax: <rule name> {AND | OR | NOT | ()} <rule name> ...

Click to select an existing rule.

Testing object matching rules

You can test which results the object matching rules return in the rule editor. This displays all object pairs found by one of the rules. In addition, objects are shown that are only found in one of the connected systemsClosed.

The test uses the variable set that is selected in the Synchronization EditorClosed's toolbar.

To test object matching rules

  1. Select the Mappings category.
  2. Select a mapping in the navigation view.
  3. Click in the rule view toolbar for object matching rules.

Setting up synchronization workflows

The synchronizationClosed sequence is controlled by a workflow. Use workflows to combine the synchronization stepsClosed to be run. The number of synchronization projectsClosed can be limited by using revision filters and quotasClosed. You can set up different workflows within a synchronization project which map different purposes of the synchronization.

Define workflows:

  • Direction of synchronization
  • Number and order of synchronization steps
  • Objects to compare (revision filter)

Default workflows for target system synchronizationClosed are added if the synchronization project was created with a default project templateClosed. You can edit these workflows with the workflow editor and set up new workflows. If the synchronization project was created without a project template, no workflows are set up.

Toolbars in the workflow editor

Both workflow and navigation views have their own toolbars.
