After the agent configuration you could check in the monitoring page if the service is running in the Synchronization Server, please go to "Start Menu > Monitoring and reporting > System monitoring".
If you are checked "Authorized identity source", an automatic task to load identities from the managed system to Soffid is available, please go to "Start Menu > Processes and Tasks > Manage automatic tasks", and you will something like "Import authoritative data from <AGENT_NAME>".
If your are configured the "Attribute Mapping" tab with some of our objects: "user, account, role, group or grant", an automatic task to synchronize these objects from the managed system to Soffid is available, please go to "Start Menu > Processes and Tasks > Manage automatic tasks", and you will something like "Reconcile all accounts from <AGENT_NAME>".
About the synchronization of the objects, there are two possible options:
- If you are checked the generic attribute "Read Only" in the "Basics" tab, only the changes in the managed systems will be updated in Soffid. We recommend this options until the global configuration of Soffid will be tested.
- If you are not checked the generic attribute "Read Only" in the "Basics" tab, all the changes in Soffid or the managed system will be updated in the other. Note that this synchronization must be configured in the "Attribute mapping" tab correctly.
