The content below is for Apache Syncope <= 1.2 - for later versions the Reference Guide is available.


A propagation action class is a Java class that implements some specific actions to be performed before and after propagation.


A propagation action class is a Java implementation of the PropagationActions interface provided below.

public interface PropagationActions {

    void before(PropagationTask task, ConnectorObject beforeObj);

    void after(PropagationTask task, TaskExec execution, ConnectorObject afterObj);

If a Propagation Actions Class has been specified for a certain external resource, PropagationActions's implemented methods will be executed during propagation:

  • before(...) will be executed before any propagation towards the given external resource takes place;
  • after(...) will be executed after a successful propagation towards the given external resource.


A propagation actions class can be deployed:

  • at project definition time
    • by adding own implementation into the overlay project, before to build Syncope.
  • at run-time
    • by adding into the container classpath own implementation (container needs to be re-started).
