What is "Use as existence test" ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Besides bloating the FIM database with DREs, what is the "Use as existence test" checkbox really for and how is it meant to be used?

    Thanks you,

    Here is what it does basically:

    In FIM, an outbound attribute flow mapping always has a single attribute as the destination. In the context of the ESD architecture, this value of the destination attribute is also known as expected value. The actual attribute value that was imported from the connected data source for the destination attribute is also known as confirmed value. The objective of the existence test is to determine whether the confirmed value matches the expected value. If both values match, the existence test is positive.
