Links

Overview

LinksĀ represent the relationship between adapter entities and locker entities and are gatekeepers to the synchronization process. How a link is configured determines when entities are synchronized, how adapter entities and locker entities are joined and what entity data can be synchronized and in what direction. Links control when and how new entities are provisioned and deprovisioned in the target entity space and can also perform custom tasks before or after the provisioning occurs.

Configuration

Links require the following basic configuration:

NameDescription
NameThe display name of the link. Should be descriptive of its function.
AdapterThe adapter that should be associated with this link.
LockerThe locker that should be associated with this link.
Incoming ProvisionIf the link should provision (create) locker entities when new adapter entities are detected during an incoming synchronization.
Incoming DeprovisionIf the link should deprovision (delete) locker entities when the removal of existing adapter entities are detected during incoming synchronization.
Outgoing ProvisionIf the link should provision (create) adapter entities when new locker entities are detected during an outgoing synchronization.
Outgoing DeprovisionIf the link should deprovision (delete) adapter entities when the removal of existing locker entities are detected during outgoing synchronization.
