See section Limitations and Considerations for each of the various use cases and connector types.

You may have multiple leading systems for different attributes, for example, SAP HCM for HR attributes and a telephone directory for telephone numbers. For each attribute, it should be clear which system is the leading system for the data to use.

6. Determine customer-specific requirements for:

  • Workflows and other processes

  • Reporting

  • Custom development / extending the implementation
