There is a race condition in Identity Broker that can be exhibited by the following:
- Begin a full import against a connected source.
- While full import is occurring, export a new item from the Identity Management platform.
- The full import finishes.
- The change detection takes place and completes.
For some connectors, any export of a new item before the full import finishes will mean that item is not reported in the full import list. This will result in the item being deleted.
For all connectors, if the export of a new item occurs during the change detection phase, it may result in the item being deleted as the item is in the entity repository but not in the list of reported items from the connected source.
For most level 1 compliant connected sources, this will self correct over time, but there may be a window in which the item is in limbo. For level 0 compliant connectors, this will invariably end up with the item being lost, even though it may exist in the connected source.
