A synchronization action class is a Java class that implements some specific actions to be performed before and after synchronization.
A synchronization action class is a Java implementation of the SyncJobActions interface.
If a Synchronization Actions Class has been specified for a certain Synchronization Task, SyncJobActions's implemented methods will be executed during synchronization:
- beforeAll(...) will be executed before to start synchronization;
- beforeCreate(...) will be executed before each local create of a new user retrieved during synchronization;
- beforeUpdate(...) will be executed before each local update of an existing user retrieved during synchronization;
- beforeDelete(...) will be executed before each local delete of a user removed from synchronized external resource;
- after(...) will be executed after each single user synchronization;
- afterAll(...) will be executed after synchronization process completion.
A synchronization 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 must be re-started to reload the classpath).
