Hierarchy sync using Sync editor or data importer - 7.1.1

Hi Experts,

Is it possible to create a hierarchy structure when synchronising data from a CSV? We need to create AccProductGroups in a hierarchy, and it can go many levels deep. 

I tried using sync editor but it only creates the first root node (hierarchy sync flag is set on the mapping)

Our CSV schema is something like this

 

Ident_AccProduct Parent FullPath
Parent  
Child1 Parent
Child2 Parent
Grandchild Parent\Child1
GrandGrandChild Parent\Child1\GrandChild

We need to create

  • Parent
    • Child1
      • Grandchild
        • GrandGrandChilld
    • Child2

 

 

Thanks

  • I have to correct the answer from Tim here.

    It is, of course, possible to import hierarchies using the CSV connector without having to execute the import several times.

    The synchronization engine of One Identity Manager supports a feature called automatic dependency resolution that auto-generates import step in your synchronization workflow to re-execute hierarchy mappings if they couldn't be satisfied during the first synchronization run (obviously the case when you import a hierarchy from a CSV file and the CSV file is not sorted).

    There is also a video on YouTube that demonstrates the use of this feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2JJbfOLZSU&index=10&list=PL242czeZwlAlLnykigzKSjywrA8ZkaxLA

    To use this your synchronization workflow needs to have the dependency resolution set to Automatic and the maintenance mode on the startup configuration for the synchronization workflow must not be set to No maintenance. In case of your multi-level hierarchy, it might be necessary to set the maintenance mode to Full maintenance and adjust the number of retries accordingly.
