This page allows the administrator to decide the engine mechanism for the synchronization tasks, i.e. when the tasks are created and send to the external systems.


There are two fields:

  1. Task engine mode. This field has three options:
    1. Read only → Option by default in the installation of Soffid. No task is synchronized to external systems.
    2. Manual → Only selected synchronization tasks are performed.  You could synchronize manually a user, check Users page. Or also synchronize a whole target system, check Agents page.
    3. Automatic → Each change is automatically sent to target systems.
  1. Tasks limit per transaction. If a single transaction creates more than this number of tasks, tasks will be held until Soffid administrator releases them. The administrator could check them in the System monitoring#3.Systemmonitoring-Plannedtasks.


Use the task engine values for these scenarios:

  1. Read only → After the Soffid installation until you have at least one target system configured to test the synchronization.
  2. Manual → For testing environments, or at the beginning of a live release.
  3. Automatic → For live environments, or also for testing environment when the platform is mature.

Use a high task limit when you are comfortable with the configured processes of Soffid, for example 1000 or 10000 depending on of the number of accounts of these external systems.
