This chapter contains these topics:
The bootstrapping procedures in this chapter assume that the integration profile for a connected directory is available to synchronize between the connected directory and Oracle Internet Directory. The procedures are for only the initial synchronization or migration of data from one directory to the other.
When the connected directory is the source of truth, bootstrapping involves migration of data from the connected directory to Oracle Internet Directory. This can be achieved using any of the following methods:
If the directory from which the Oracle Internet Directory is being bootstrapped is also going to be part of the Oracle Directory Integration Platform environment--as is the case, for example, with Oracle HR--then follow the steps in this chapter for the initial bootstrap.

With this method, the connector pulls changes from the connected directory based on either a timestamp (orclOdipLastSuccessfulExecutionTime attribute) or `Last Applied Change Number' (orclOdipConDirLastAppliedChgNum) depending on how the connected directory identifies its changes. The data can be bootstrapped onto Oracle Internet Directory in the following sequence:
Similar to bootstrapping Oracle Internet Directory from a connected directory, bootstrapping the connected directory from Oracle Internet Directory can also be achieved by either of the methods described in these topics:
With this method, the changes from Oracle Internet Directory are pushed to the connected directory based on OID Last applied change number (orclLastAppliedChangeNumber attribute). The data can be bootstrapped onto the connected directory in the following sequence:
