Redirect the Alloy Discovery Synchronization Jobs to the Test Alloy Discovery 8 Database

The imported Alloy Discovery Synchronization jobs use your production Alloy Discovery database as the source of audit data. To test these jobs, you need to temporarily redirect them to your test Alloy Discovery 8 database.

You will point them back to the production Alloy Discovery 8 database later. For details, see Optional: Redirect Your Alloy Discovery Synchronization to the Production Alloy Discovery 8 Database.

To redirect a job:

  1. In the Alloy Navigator 8 Settings app, go to Services > Alloy Discovery Integration > Synchronization and double-click the job.
  2. Modify the Alloy Discovery Database settings so that the job now connects to your test Alloy Discovery 8 database.
  3. Click OK.

    INFO: For details, see Administration Guide: Configuring Alloy Discovery Synchronization.

Now you can force the job to run and check its results. For details, see Administration Guide: Checking Results of Active Directory Synchronization Jobs.

To test how the job runs automatically, enable it. For details, see Administration Guide: Disabling or Enabling Active Directory Synchronization Jobs.
