I was wondering if it would be possible in IDM to have a “dynamic” selection of the target resource we can use in a mapping.
In my case, we have 7 SAP instances, with identical configuration. So we have 7 connectors, and 7 mappings declared. But a user account can be provisioned on one system, based on a validSource script.
It would be quite cool to be able to have only one mapping, and select the target based on validSource.
I don’t know the impact on the performance. If the “validSource” script is used in the first phase, I guess there is no real issue with performance in my case ; only 7 mappings to copy / paste.

Just trying to understand the above – are you by any chance asking:
* if there’s a way to replace 7 mappings with a single where the target resource (in SAP) along with SAP connector are dynamically selected on the fly based on
validSourcefilter? I want to emphasize on the connector here as you have 7 in your scenario and you would like to somehow via your mapping select one based on a give criteria? is that what you are asking?

yes this is the goal. In other products (such as IBM SIM) there is a “service selection policy” which can be used to do this. It is very helpful when you have a lot of similar connectors.

AFAIK a given sync mapping has a single one way mapping with a connector. Once it’s married – it remains married to that connector.
Are all your connectors connected to the same datasource/database? And do they define different Identity Objects a.k.a
Object Typese.g. Connector 1 defines Employee, Connector 2 defines Devices, and so on? Or they define a single Identity Object e.g. Employee but apply different filters?November 4, 2020 at 6:24 pm #28348
Hello, sorry for the delay.
In fact all connectors are connected to different datasource, but with the same mapping of attributes.
There are 7 SAP “contexts”, on different hosts.
So it would be difficult to use the link qualifier for this purpose.
With the new feature of separate mapping files, it becomes quite easy to do a copy/paste now, so this is not a huge requirement.
Thank you for your interest on my topic !November 9, 2020 at 4:24 pm #28351
Nice and no worries!
