Run synchronizations

Synchronizer admin permissions are required.

After your link is created and configured, run an integrity check to verify that records will be synchronized correctly.

If the integrity check passes, run a simulation to verify how much data will change.

Then run manual tasks, or start automatic synchronizations.

If you make certain changes to a link's configuration after having already synchronized, such as updated rules or field mapping, you'll need to run a full synchronization to ensure that all records are aligned with those changes. ALM Octane will notify you when a full synchronization is required.

Caution: Once records have been synchronized, they cannot be removed from the synchronization. When first setting up a link's configuration, use a favorite defined with one record only. Widen the favorite slowly, ensuring that the synchronizations run as you expect.
