Deleting a step

To delete a workflow step

  1. In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Workflows tab.
  2. Click the name of the workflow in which you want to delete a step.
  3. Click Delete below the step you want to delete.
  4. When prompted, confirm that you want to delete the step.

Changing the order of steps in a workflow

Synchronizing identity data > Managing workflow steps > Changing the order of steps in a workflow

When you run a workflow, its steps are executed in the order they are displayed in the Quick Connect Administration Console. If necessary, you can change the order of steps in a workflow.

To change the order of steps in a workflow

  1. In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Workflows tab.
  2. Click the name of the workflow in which you want to change the order of steps.
  3. Use the Move up and Move down links to arrange the steps as necessary.

Generating object names by using rules

Synchronizing identity data > Managing workflow steps > Generating object names by using rules

When configuring a synchronization step, you can use the Rules to generate unique object name list to specify rules for creating or modifying object names in the target connected system. The Rules to generate unique object name list looks similar to the following:

 

To configure rules for generating object names

  1. Click the down arrow on the leftmost button provided below the Rules to generate unique object name list.
  2. Select a list item:
    • Attribute. Allows you to select the target object attribute whose value you want to use as the object name.
    • Rule. Allows you to configure a rule to generate target object names. For details, see Using value generation rules.
    • PowerShell Script. Allows you to type a PowerShell script to generate target object names.

When the Rules to generate unique object name list includes two or more entries, Quick Connect uses the uppermost rule in the list to generate the target object name. If the generated object name is not unique, Quick Connect uses the next rule in the list, and so on.

To copy and paste an existing rule

  1. In the Rules to generate unique object name list, right-click a rule, and then select Copy from the shortcut menu.
  2. In the rules list, right-click an entry, and then select Paste from the shortcut menu.

Modifying attribute values by using rules

Synchronizing identity data > Managing workflow steps > Modifying attribute values by using rules

In a workflow step you can configure a set of rules to automatically modify attribute values during the step run. By using these rules, you can select or generate an initial value, transform this value if necessary, and then assign the resulting value to the object attribute you want.

To create a rule to modify attribute values

  1. In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Workflows tab.
  2. Click the name of the appropriate workflow, then click the name of the workflow step.
  3. Depending on the workflow step type, complete the corresponding actions:
    • Provisioning step. Click the Provisioning Rules tab, and then expand the Initial Attribute Population Rules element.
    • Updating step. Click the Updating Rules tab, and then expand the Rules to Modify Object Attributes element.
    • Deprovisioning step. Click the Deprovisioning Rules tab, and then expand the Rules to Modify Object Attributes element.
  4. In the element you have expanded, click the down arrow on the leftmost button to select a rule type:
    • Forward Sync Rule. Allows you to create a rule that synchronizes attribute values from the source to the target data system. This type of rule is available in provisioning, updating, and deprovisioning steps. For more information, see Configuring a forward sync rule.
    • Reverse Sync Rule. Allows you to create a rule that synchronizes attribute values from the target to the source data system. This type of rule is available in provisioning, updating, and deprovisioning steps. For more information, see Configuring a reverse sync rule.
    • Merge Sync Rule. Allows you to create a rule that merges the values of specified attributes between the source and the target data systems. As a result, the attribute values in the source and the target become identical. This type of rule is only available in updating steps. For more information, see Configuring a merge sync rule.
