To synchronize identity data between connected data systems, you can use synchronization workflows and synchronization steps. A synchronization workflow is a set of data synchronization operations called synchronization steps. A workflow can include one or more steps. Each synchronization step defines a synchronization operation to be run between the source and target connected data systems. To manage workflows and their steps, you can use the Workflows tab in the Quick Connect Administration Console.
You can configure a synchronization step to perform one of the following operations:
When configuring a synchronization step you can specify the following:
To synchronize identity data between two data systems, you need to create a synchronization workflow, populate the workflow with synchronization steps, and then run the workflow manually or schedule the workflow run. The following figure illustrates how One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine synchronizes identity data in connected data systems:
Running a workflow causes One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine to read data in the source and target data systems according to the settings in the workflow steps and prepare a list of changes to be made in the target system. Then, you can commit these changes to the target data system.
Running a workflow manually allows you to review a list of changes before committing them to the target data system. A scheduled workflow run always commits changes to the target data system automatically.
You can configure as many synchronization workflows as needed, each performing its own set of synchronization steps.

To create a synchronization workflow
The new workflow appears on the Workflows tab.
After you have created a workflow, you need to populate it with one or more synchronization steps. For more information, see Managing workflow steps.
