Pinned topic Security Directory Integrator Reporting

‏2014-08-27T09:00:56Z |

Hi,

Now, I am have plan to test SDI with customer. SDI will be used to synchronise user info from HR to Active Director.

Customer also want to have the reports that show the result of SDI synchronisation.

They want the following reports:

1. Number of users that are synchronised through SDI.

2. The synchronisation status (success/ fail)

3. Number of new/ updated and deleted users that are synchronized by SDI.

How can I achieve the customer report requirement by using SDI? Please recommend..

Best Regards,

Chainarong R.

    From your description , it seems you just need the statistics of synchronization (total synchronized, no of failed/successful etc), which you can easily collect while doing the actual synhchronization, may be in separate csv file. You can create such csv files everytime you run synchronization. Thus you will have history of synchronization.

    Many people think that we can use SDI to build 'identity management' solution, instead of using ISIM. Of course, you can; even you can do a brain surgery using SDI. But, the challenge is that SDI is just another programming software. It does not provide you with a complete 'infrastructure' of an 'identity management' solution. It means that you have to build every things, including any reports that the customer need. You can build a simple one, if the customer can satisfy with it, or you can build a more complicated one. You asked: "3. Number of new/ updated and deleted users..." The word 'deleted users' indicates that you need a more complicated report, because there are many variant from it, such as how do you know the user is deleted if you don't have a copy of the target data in your repository.

    Thank for the answer.

    Have you ever seen anyone done this before?

    Thank for your suggestion. However, we have been constrained by customer budget.

    So, we have figured out with SDI solution for user synchronisation but lack of reporting.
