Synchronization Situations and Actions

The synchronization process assesses source and target objects, and the links between them, and then determines the synchronization situation that applies to each object. The process then performs a specific action, usually on the target object, depending on the assessed situation.

The action that is taken for each situation is defined in the policies section of your synchronization mapping.

The following excerpt of a sample mapping shows the defined actions in that sample:

{
    "policies": [
        {
            "situation": "CONFIRMED",
            "action": "UPDATE"
        },
        {
            "situation": "FOUND",
            "action": "LINK"
        },
        {
            "situation": "ABSENT",
            "action": "CREATE"
        },
        {
            "situation": "AMBIGUOUS",
            "action": "IGNORE"
        },
        {
            "situation": "MISSING",
            "action": "IGNORE"
        },
        {
            "situation": "SOURCE_MISSING",
            "action": "DELETE"
        },
        {
            "situation": "UNQUALIFIED",
            "action": "IGNORE"
        },
        {
            "situation": "UNASSIGNED",
            "action": "IGNORE"
        }
    ]
}

You can also define these actions in the UI. Select Configure > Mappings, click on the required Mapping, then select the Behaviors tab to specify different actions per situation.

If you do not define an action for a particular situation, Identity Cloud takes the default action for that situation.
