The UnitySync Manager User Interface (UI) gives you the power to manage all synchronization processes in one place. Manage individual connections, log files, global settings, and access help files all from the UnitySync UI.
Upon first installing UnitySync, or when you have not selected a connection you will see the Launch Page.
The first line of the UI, the TopRow, contains global functions affecting all of your individual connections. You will see the current Connection name (or a blank drop down list if no connection is selected), and buttons to create a New connection, configure your Global SMTP settings, view the status of processes inSync Monitor and Doc to find help when you need it. Please see the following section for more information on these TopRow global functions.
The Launch Page also includes version information, your Serial Number, and License Key entry and information. As of v4.0, you may request a new key here using the Request Key button, which uses mailto functionality to provide all relevant information needed in the body of an email to email@example.com](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
Once you receive your key, enter it in the License Key box and click the Save Key button.
In the upper left is the drop down selection list of existing connections. Here you may select an existing connection to edit/run. Once you select the connection, you will see multiple tabs and parameters to configure. Refer to Configure UnitySync sections for details on each section/tab of the UnitySync UI.
TopRow Global Settings
Configuration items on this row are global and may affect all connections. You will see the TopRow above tabs no matter which connection or tab is active.
Select any configured connections from this drop-down list and it will become the active connection. If you haven’t configured a connection yet, move on to the next section to find out how.
Click here to create a new connection. The New Connection window will load.
In the Connection Name box, type a name for your connection. Then, select the appropriate Source and Destination Map Templates for your directory types. The Sync Engine will automatically change depending on the Map Template type, but this can also be manually adjusted if you so desire.
Click Save to preserve your new connection.
Select this to define global server and reply addresses for error and/or summary email alerts.
In the SMTP Server Settings, indicate your SMTP server and Reply Address. Then provide the email address to receive summaries and error alerts. You can also choose the urgency of the message and whether or not to send logs with each type of email. Use the test buttons to insure you will receive any emails generated by UnitySync.
More information on Global SMTP is covered in the information on the Email Notify tab.
Selecting Sync Monitor will display a separate window with a process list of all running connections.
If any connection is running, you will see the detail under the heading shown in the window.
- Connection - connection name
- Program - the executable currently running (ldif-ldap, csv-ldif, etc.)
- Mode - what process is running (disc, sync, sim, or unsync)
- PID - process ID
- Time - time elapsed since process started
UnitySync processes information so efficiently, however, you may not see any processes running at all! If this is the case, the process likely finished before you had the opportunity to open the window.
This button provides you quick access to this Administrator’s Guide from the UI. Click it for quick answers to your questions. The Administrator’s Guide will open in a new browser tab.
