    As part of our requirement, we have established Federation between IDCS & ForgeRock.
    We are using ForgeRock 6.5.3.
    Now we have a requirement to synchronize users & roles automatically across the IDMs(both ways)
    As part of configuration ForgeRock AM is integrated with ForgeRock DS(external LDAP).
    Please provide some pointers available in ForgeRock on how to achieve this.

    I’m not sure how to answer your question other than to ask how familiar are you with FR IDM and have you read through the documentation. What might seem like an simple question can be handled in many different ways and unless you know the product pretty well (and provide more context in how you plan on flowing the data through the system), there is nothing I will be able to tell you which will directly answer your question.

    All I can offer is for you to look more closely at IDM’s synchronization features – especially as it pertains to implicit sync (changes made from IDM to DS) and LiveSync (discovery of changes made in DS to IDM). But even then, there is quite a bit of other things to consider in the implementation of those features and unless you have a firm handle on the product, you can easily get yourself in trouble.
