By default, links are maintained between source and target objects in mappings. This behavior is governed by the
enableLinking property in the mapping. If
enableLinking is set to
false, links are not maintained. You might want to disable linking in the case of a bulk import.
To maintain links between source and target objects in mappings, Identity Cloud stores an object set in the repository. The object set identifier follows this scheme:
Here, mapping represents the name of the mapping for which links are managed.
Link entries have the following structure:
The identifier of the link object.
The value of link object's revision.
The type of the link. Usually the name of the mapping which created the link.
The identifier of the first of the two linked objects.
The identifier of the second of the two linked objects.
