Because reconciliation is designed for ongoing comparison, it has the following characteristics:
Diagnoses account situations more specifically and supports a wider range of responses than the discovery process
Can be scheduled (discovery cannot)
Offers an incremental mode (discovery is always full mode)
Can detect native changes (discovery cannot)
You can also configure reconciliation to launch an arbitrary workflow at each of the following points in processing a resource:
Before reconciling any account
For each account
After reconciling all accounts
Access Identity Manager reconciliation features from the Resources area. The Resources list shows when each resource was last reconciled and its current reconciliation status.
Reconciliation is carried out by Identity Manager’s reconciler component. For information about reconciler configuration settings, see .
