FIM: How to test the exporting of data before it is exported

Purpose

The purpose of this document is to cover the different ways to test an Export profile prior to actually executing the full blown export to the connected data source.

Ways to test export

In support, we have had discussions with customers around testing an export before actually performing the export.  The goal is to be able to see the data before it is actually written to the connected data source.

We can review and/or test the export in a few different ways.

  1. Statistics: Statistics provides a way to see how many objects are going to be exported, and the action that is going to happen.  You can view Statistics through the following steps:
    1. In the Synchronization Service Manager Console, Select Tools > Statistics
    2. Select the Management Agent concerned about, and scroll all the way to the right
  2. Pending Export Search: You can search the connector space for Pending Exports.  This allows you to be able to view the object inside of the GUI.  You can drill down to be able to see the attributes that are being exported.
  3. Export to a drop file: This allows you to be able to export to a file, and then be able to review the information prior to export.  You can find more information here.
  4. Export using a Threshold: This allows you to be able to export only a few objects.  You can see an actual export take place, and review the information prior to exporting all objects.  You can find more information here.
  5. Export: At this point, you should be ready to export your data.
