Question about Scope of Initial Load

Hi experts,

I am trying to test basic provisioning to SAP ERP.

As a step for provisioning, I ran initial road.

Some loaded successfully and some failed and I have some questions.

My environment is as follows:

IDM 8.0

OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise

DBMS: Sql server 2012

Both IDM and ERP runs on same PC.

The hosts file is configured to use hostname 'vmehp7'.

(The installation was done without problem.

Basic synchronization was done. **thanks to Valentina)

I created Repository as follows:

and ran Initial load.

after several correction, it looks did something like:

and the detail screen is

and the Job Log is as attached. (DSE.log, DES_log.xml)

If I check Identity Store,

Company address, Person, Privileges are loaded from the repository even though the status is red.

(see PRIV:ROLE:R4_ERP:****)

(ACCOUNTING, BLACKMA ,, is added person)

Here comes my questions:

1. Can I control the passes in Initial Load?

I thought Initial load would read in technical roles from repository because it is must thing for IDM.

But this Initial Load do much more than I thought.

It read in Person even though the repository(ERP) is not a source system.

Read-in person and create in Identity Store is needed function by situation.

But not always recommendable.

So I think there must be a way to select passes for run.

2. what these errors mean?

If you see the error log, there are some errors starting from 'Pass: WrintABAPUsers'.

putNextEntry failed storingNORDSPEED

Exception from Add ToIDStore.addEntry failed storing entry 'NORDSPEED'. IDStore returned error message: " Value not legal for this attribute:Attribute: MX_TIMEZONE" when storing attribute 'MX_TIMEZONE=UTC+1'

Exception from Modify ToIDStore.modEntry failed updating entry 'NORDSPEED'. IDStore returned error message: "Entry does not exist" when fetching entry

any advice on this error and others will be highly appreciated.

    Hello Dongsu,

    1. Yes you can control basically everything in the initial by activating or deactivating certain passes in the initial load. You can for example decide to not write users to IDM but only the privileges --> deactive the pass "WriteUsers". You can apply filters to everything as well. You can even implement your own logic within those jobs by adding new passes.

    2. You can fix this error in several ways. When you open the ID store schema and take a look at the attributes --> MX_TIMEZONE you will see a tab called "Attribute Values". I am assuming you have a tick at the bottom radio button that the legal values are fetched from the attrvalueHelp table.

    - First option: deselect this option and define your own legal values (first radio button)

    - Second option: Add the additional values which are needed directly to the table in IDM

    I would probably go with option 1.

    NOTE: Depending on the SP level you have installed, this might not work. The attrvaluehelp could not be deactivated in the first version of IDM 8.0. There was a hotfix for this delivered by SAP which should automatically be included in SP1 though.
