6.1 Determining Which Objects Are Synchronized

Identity Manager uses the driver filter, located on both the Publisher and Subscriber channels, to control which objects are synchronized and to define the authoritative data source for these objects.

The following steps provide instructions for editing the filter in iManager. For information about editing the filter in Designer, see Controlling the Flow of Objects with the Filter in the Policies in Designer 4.0 guide.

  1. In iManager, open the LDAP driver Overview page:

    1. Click to display the Identity Manager Administration page.

    2. In the Administration list, click Identity Manager Overview.

    3. If the driver set is not listed on the Driver Sets tab, use the Search In field to search for and display the driver set.

    4. Click the driver set to open the Driver Set Overview page.

    5. Click the LDAP driver icon to display its Overview page.

  2. Click the Publisher or Subscriber filter icon and make the appropriate changes.

    For every object and attribute selected in the filter, the Schema Mapping policy must have a corresponding entry unless the class or attribute names are the same in both directories (see Section 6.2, Defining Schema Mapping). Before mapping an attribute, verify that a corresponding attribute actually exists in the target directory.
