Configure a resource mapping
Objects in external resources are specified in a mapping as
system/name/object-type, where name is the name used in the connector configuration, and object-type is the object defined in the connector configuration list of object types. Objects in the repository are specified in the mapping as
managed/object-type, where object-type is defined in the managed object configuration.
External resources, and IDM managed objects, can be the source or the target in a mapping. By convention, the mapping name is a string of the form
source_target, as shown in the following example:
Basic LDAP Mapping
In this example, the name of the source is the external resource (
ldap), and the target is IDM’s user repository; specifically,
properties defined in the mapping correspond to attribute names that are defined in the IDM configuration. For example, the source attribute
uid is defined in the
ldap connector configuration file, rather than on the external resource itself.
To set up a synchronization mapping using the IDM admin UI:
From the IDM console, click Native Consoles > Identity Management.
From the navigation bar in the IDM admin UI, click Configure > Mappings.
Click New Mapping.
On the New Mapping page, select a source and target resource from the configured resources at the bottom of the window, and click Create Mapping.
You can filter these resources to display only connector configurations or managed objects.
Select Add property on the Attributes grid to map a target property to its corresponding source property.
The Property list shows all configured properties on the target resource. If the target resource is specified in a connector configuration, the Property list shows all properties configured for this connector. If the target resource is a managed object, the Property list shows the list of properties (defined in the managed object configuration for that object).
Select Add Missing Required Properties to add all the properties that are configured as required on the target resource. You can then map these required properties individually.
Select Quick Mapping to show all source and target properties simultaneously. Drag a source property onto its corresponding target property, or vice versa. When you’re done, click Save.
To test your mapping configuration on a single source entry, click the Behaviors tab and scroll down to Single Record Reconciliation. Search for the entry to reconcile.
The UI displays a preview of the target entry after a reconciliation. You can then click Reconcile Selected Record to perform the reconciliation on that one source entry.
