Discovery and Analytics Overview

Discovery is the 2nd step in the integration process. Create an instance, select a connector and a schema will be produced based on the connector's configuration. Includes a list of all object types as well as attributes stored in each.

Discovery Schema Instances

A discovery schema can then be used to aid in creating Job Mappings or to simply find out what's in the repository. Running a discovery instance will create a new version of the schema. Whatever version you select will be used when creating mappings. Here you can view the most recently created schema instances as well as created new ones.
How to Create Schema Instances

Data Collection

A scheduling system that allows the user to schedule job runs. It can be turned on and off in the Data Collection index page. Data collection schedules can be run for a job group or individual job. For the purposes of data collection jobs it is suggested you use the Reporting Connector and do not have Include Binaries checked in the Details tab. Simflofy can create the necessary auditing data without the actual file content.

Pii Scan

The Pii Scan feature allows the user to select a configured repository connector and job, then scan the repository for Personally Identifiable Information (Pii).

This can include phone numbers, social security numbers, proper names, and addresses.

A temporary job is created using the repository configuration of the selected job.

Appropriate tasks and mappings are added to the job, then the job is run.

Upon completion, the temporary job and records are deleted, leaving only Pii Data.
