Configure organization data connections

In the Management Portal at Data Model > Data Connections, use data connections to synchronize data from an external source with your environment. Use organization data connections to synchronize organizational context and existing Organizational Attributes.



Explanation and Tips

Properties tab

In the Data Source field, specify the Data Source that contains the external data that you want to synchronize. You can configure Data Sources in the Setup and Sync Tool.

Mappings tab

Specify which external data you want to synchronize and how.

  • In the Look up on field, specify the search method for organizational context in the external data.
  • In the Place in field, specify the organizational context in Ivanti Identity Director in which the synchronized data should be placed. Organizational Attributes related to this organizational context are also shown in the Property to set column.
    • You can only map to Organizational Attributes at this level, not to subitems.
    • You can only set the values of existing Organizational Attributes. To add new Organizational Attributes, you need to create them manually or synchronize them with Organizational Attribute data connections.
  • In the Path separator field, specify the separator that is used in the external data. This field is only relevant if the data connection looks up on Name or Path + Name.
  • Select Ignore duplicates, Automatically create path, Allow updates and Allow deletes for additional synchronization options. This is particularly useful if you have synchronized the data connection before.
    • The options Allow updates and Allow deletes also apply to the values of the Organizational Attributes.
