Creating a One Identity Manager connection

One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine supports One Identity Manager out of the box, so you can create a connection to Identity Manager just after you install One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine.

To create a new connection

  1. In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Connections tab.
  2. Click Add connection, and then use the following options:
    1. Connection name. Type a descriptive name for the connection.
    2. Use the specified connector. Select One Identity Manager Connector.
  3. Click Next.
  4. On the Specify connection settings page, use the following options:
    • Application Server URL. Specify the address of the One Identity Manager application server to which you want to connect.
    • Authentication module. Identifies the One Identity Manager authentication module that is to be used to verify the connection’s user ID and password.
    • User name. Specify the user ID for this connection.
    • Password. Specify the password of the user ID for this connection.
    • Test Connection. Click to verify the specified connection settings.
  5. Click Next.

    The One Identity Manager modules, target systems, and containers are displayed.

  6. Select the required One Identity Manager modules.

    NOTE: The One Identity Manager target systems and One Identity Manager containers are applicable only for the Target System Base module (UNS..B tables).
  7. Click Finish to create a connection to One Identity Manager.

Modifying a One Identity Manager connection

To modify connection settings

  1. In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Connections tab.
  2. Click Connection settings below the existing One Identity Manager connection you want to modify.
  3. Expand Specify connection settings and use the following options to modify the settings as necessary:
    • Application Server URL. View or change the address of the One Identity Manager application server for this connection.
    • Authentication module. Identifies the One Identity Manager authentication module that is used to verify the connection’s user ID and password.
    • User name. View or change the user ID for this connection.
    • Password. Specify the password of the user ID for this connection.
    • Test Connection. Click to verify the specified connection settings.
  4. Click Next.

    The One Identity Manager modules, target systems, and containers are displayed.

  5. Select the required One Identity Manager modules.

    NOTE: The One Identity Manager target systems and One Identity Manager containers are applicable only for the Target System Base module (UNS..B tables).
  6. Click Finish to create a connection to One Identity Manager.

One Identity Manager Connector configuration file

One Identity Manager connector saves its configuration settings in the file ConnectorConfig.xml located in the folder <One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine installation folder>\D1IMConnector. You can edit the XML elements in the file to configure the various parameters of the One Identity Manager Connector. The table below describes the XML elements you can edit.

 

Table 12: XML elements

XML element

Description

<ExcludeDeletedObjects>

Specifies how One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine will treat objects marked as deleted in Identity Manager. This element can take one of the following values:

  • TRUE. Specifies to ignore deleted objects during data synchronization operations.
  • FALSE. Specifies to process deleted objects during data synchronization operations.

Example:

<ExcludeDeletedObjects>
TRUE
</ExcludeDeletedObjects>

<PasswordAttributes>

Specifies the default Identity Manager attribute to be used for storing passwords for objects of a particular type. Specifying an attribute for storing passwords in the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine GUI overrides the value set in this XML element.

Example:

<PasswordAttributes>
   <PasswordAttributeDefinitions>
      <PasswordAttributeDefinition objectType="Person"       attribute="CentralPassword" />
   </PasswordAttributeDefinitions>
</PasswordAttributes>

<ReadFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Read operations performed in Identity Manager.

<CreateFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Create operations performed in Identity Manager.

<ModifyFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Modify operations performed in Identity Manager.

<DeleteFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Delete operations performed in Identity Manager.

<ObjRefFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Modify Object Reference operations performed in Identity Manager.

<SyncStatusFullSync>

Specifies a value of the FullSync variable for Sync Status operations performed in Identity Manager.

For more information about the FullSync variable and the values it can take, see the Quest One Identity Manager documentation.

 

Using remote connectors

Connections to external data systems > Using remote connectors

You can install and use Quick Connect connector packages not only on the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine computer (locally), but also on remote computers that do not host the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine. Connectors installed on remote computers are called remote connectors. A remote connector provides the same functionality as a locally installed connector.

One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine communicates with a remote connector via a single port. For this reason, using a remote connector makes it easier for you to configure a connection to an external data system in a situation where it is separated from the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine computer by a firewall.

Consider a scenario where you want to synchronize data between two Active Directory domains that are separated by a firewall. In this scenario, you can install the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine in one domain, and then deploy the Active Directory Connector on a domain controller in the other domain. Then, ensure the firewall allows traffic on the port used for communications between the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine and the remotely installed Active Directory Connector.
