8.7 Event Transformation - Scope Filtering - Include Subtrees

This rule excludes all events that occur except for the specific subtree. Implement the rule on the Event Transformation policy in the driver. You can implement the rule on either the Subscriber or the Publisher channel or on both channels.

There are two steps involved in using the predefined rules: creating a policy in the Event Transformation policy set and importing the predefined rule. If you already have an Event Transformation policy that you want to add this rule to, skip to Importing the Predefined Rule.

8.7.1 Creating a Policy

  1. From the Outline view or the Policy Flow view, select the Publisher or Subscriber channel.

  2. Select the Event Transformation policy set in the Policy Set view, then click Create or add a new policy to the Policy Set icon Create or Add a New Policy icon to create a new policy.

  3. Click Create a new policy, then click Next.

  4. Name the policy.

  5. Use the default location or browse and select another location to place the policy in the driver.

  6. Select Open Editor after creating policy, then click Next.

  7. Select DirXML Script for the type of policy, then click Finish.

  8. A file conflict window appears with the message “ Before editing this item you need to save. Do you wish to save the editor’s changes and continue?” Click Yes. The Policy Builder is launched and the new Event Transformation policy is saved.

  9. Continue with Section 8.7.2, Importing the Predefined Rule.

8.7.2 Importing the Predefined Rule

  1. Right-click in the Policy Builder, then select New > Predefined Rule > Insert Predefined Rule Before or Insert Predefined Rule After.

  2. Select Event Transformation - Scope Filtering - Include subtrees, then click OK.

  3. Edit the condition by double-clicking the Conditions tab.

  4. Delete [Enter a subtree to include] in the Value field.

  5. Click the browse button to browse the Identity Vault for the part of the tree you were you want events to synchronize, then click OK.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Save the rule by clicking File > Save.

8.7.3 How the Rule Works

This rule is used when you want to exclude part of the Identity Vault from synchronizing. It allows you synchronize some objects and not other objects, without using the Filter. When an event occurs anywhere but in that specific part of the Identity Vault, it is vetoed.
