Figure 7-6 The Dataflow Editor
The Dataflow editor enables you to do the following:
Use filters to display how data flows between all systems and Identity Vaults.
View how passwords flow from each server.
Generate reports of the data.
When object additions, deletions, changes, and selections synchronization occur, the Dataflow editor synchronizes with the Modeler and the Outline view.
To access the Dataflow editor, click the Dataflow tab.
To adjust the area for the Identity Vaults, move the slider bar. This setting persists and is restored the next time you run the editor.
By default, the Dataflow editor shows all dataflows. The View drop-down list (in the upper left corner of the Dataflow editor, not in the Dataflow view), enables you to view notification, synchronization, reset, or Password Sync information. These filtered views do not allow you as much editing capability as the main view, but just what is necessary in that filter. For example, you can’t add attributes, vaults, or applications, because by default they wouldn’t appear in the filter.
Figure 7-7 Options to Filter Views in the Dataflow View
If you are in the All Filters view, you can further filter with thelist. Because the Dataflow editor provides non-filter attributes, you can choose to view regular filter-based attributes, non-filter attributes, or both.
Figure 7-8 Options in the All Filters View
The Password Sync view enables you to see and edit how all passwords flow in the project. Designer displays the information on a per-server basis and shows how passwords flow among all of the applications.
Figure 7-9 The Password Flow
To edit the password flow:
Selectin the View filter.
Double-click the flow arrow.
You can also right-click, then select.
Edit the password synchronization options.
For more information about password synchronization, see “Password Synchronization across Connected Systems” in the Novell Identity Manager Administration Guide.
You can select the Identity Vaults and applications that you want to view in the editor.
In the Dataflow editor, click theicon.
The Identity Vaults and applications that you select here are included in the HTML reports. For more information, see Section 7.5, Generating HTML Reports.
You can scroll and resize the dialog box. Also, you can interact with the Dataflow editor in the background, in any mode. This is convenient if you want to scroll a different section into view while this dialog box is up.
To change the scope of the editor to show a single Identity Vault, right-click the vault, then select.
Figure 7-10 Pinning an Identity Vault
With a medium or large-sized project, the dataflow table can contain hundreds of rows and thousands of items. If you have multiple vaults and want to narrow the scope to more easily edit a vault without excessive scrolling, you might want to pin a vault. When an Identity Vault is pinned, a pin icon displays in the upper right corner.
Figure 7-11 A Pinned Identity Vault
To unpin the vault, right-click the Identity Vault, then select.
When the editor first loads, all vaults are expanded at the top level by default.
To collapse or expand the list of classes and attributes in an Identity Vault, do one of the following:
Click the - or + icon below the Identity Vault icon.

Select the Identity Vault, then press the Right-arrow key to expand the information, or press the Left-arrow key to collapse the information.
To expand or collapse the list of classes and attributes for all Identity Vaults, click theor from the pull-down menu.on the toolbar.

To view all attributes in a class, select the class, then press the Right-arrow key. To collapse the list of attributes, press the Left-arrow key.
To view all classes and attributes in an Identity Vault, right-click the Identity Vault icon, then selectTo list just classes in an Identity Vault, right-click the Identity Vault, then select .

To switch from an Identity Vault icon to an eDirectory™ tree icon, right-click the Identity Vault, then select
Figure 7-15 Changing to an eDirectory Tree
You can easily view both ends of an eDir-to-eDir connection so that you can configure the dataflows on both sides. Designer automatically detects the two eDirectory applications and aligns them in the same table column. A red line connects them.

You can navigate by using the Up-arrow, Down-arrow, Left-arrow, and Right- arrow keys as well as PageUp, PageDown, Home, and End. In addition, you can navigate from one Identity Vault to another by clicking the up-arrow or down-arrow on the toolbar.
