Synchronization Report RSLDAPSYNC_USER: Examples

You define how the objects (users) to be synchronized are dealt with on the Directory Synchronization of Users screen. Prerequisites for an error free execution of the report are correct mapping (especially of the required attributes) and correct synchronization indicators in transaction LDAPMAP.

Directory Synchronization of Users: Examples

Example 1:

You are using an FI component system that is to be synchronized with an LDAP-compatible directory server. The directory server is the leading system. This means that all objects in the directory must be replicated in your component system. Objects that do not exist in the component system are to be created there. Only objects that exist in the component system are to be ignored. For changes to objects that exist in both storage areas, the attributes are adjusted according to the settings of the synchronization indicators (Delta comparison)

Choose the Compare Time Stamp option in the Objects that Exist Both in the Directory and in the Database frame.

Choose the Create in Database option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Directory frame.

Choose the Ignore Objects option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Database frame.

Example 2:

As example 1, except that instead of a delta comparison, all objects in both storage areas are to be synchronized according to the synchronization indicators (complete synchronization).

Choose the Ignore Time Stamp option in the Objects that Exist Both in the Directory and in the Database frame.

Choose the Create in Database option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Directory frame.

Choose the Ignore Objects option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Database frame.

Example 3:

As example 1, except that objects that only exist in the database are to be locked.

Choose the Compare Time Stamp option in the Objects that Exist Both in the Directory and in the Database frame.

Choose the Create in Database option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Directory frame.

Choose the Lock in Database option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Database frame.

Example 4:

You are using an HR system that is to be synchronized with an LDAP directory server. The HR system is the leading system. This means that all objects in the HR system database must be replicated in the LDAP-compatible directory service. Objects that do not exist in the LDAP-compatible directory service are to be created there. Only objects that exist in the LDAP-compatible directory service are to be ignored. For changes to objects that exist in both storage areas, the attributes are adjusted according to the settings of the synchronization indicators (Delta comparison)

Choose the Compare Time Stamp option in the Objects that Exist Both in the Directory and in the Database frame.

Choose the Ignore Objects option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Directory frame.

Choose the Create in Directory option in the Objects that Only Exist in the Database frame.
