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?
