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.

Icon Meaning
The synchronization project is activated.
The synchronization project is deactivated.

To activate the loaded synchronization project

  1. Select the General view on the home 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. In the Synchronization EditorClosed, open the synchronization project.

  2. Select the General view on the home page.

  3. Click Deactivate project.

Defining start up sequences

In the Synchronization EditorClosed, you can define start up sequencesClosed across synchronization projectsClosed for full synchronization. Start up sequences order start up configurations for different target systems into a sequence. The synchronization projects are run automatically in the given order.

Example

Shortly after synchronizing personnel planning data from an SAP HCM system, always synchronize the SAP R/3, Active Directory, Privileged Account Management, and Google Workspace systems. Personnel planning data should be synchronized daily.

To do this, the start up configuration for the SAP HCM system and the start up configuration for all other target system are group together in a start up sequence. The start up configuration for SAP HCM is positioned at the top. A schedule is assigned that starts the start up sequence daily.

Specify whether each start up configuration is allowed to start after the previous synchronization has completed or at the same time as the previous start up configuration.
