Triggers provide a mechanism to tell AutoSync that a run profile must be scheduled for execution. Most commonly, triggers are used to tell AutoSync that a connected system has pending changes, and that it must perform a delta import.

AutoSync knows when a management agent requires a synchronization or has a pending export, as this information is available from the MIM sync service itself. However, the MIM sync engine doesn't know if a connected system has any pending changes in it. AutoSync triggers can be used to detect these changes and schedule a delta import in the sync service.

Triggers can also be used to tell AutoSync to execute any run profile outside of the standard import, sync, export, confirming import cycle. For example, triggers can be setup to perform maintenance operations such as a weekly full synchronization or daily full import.

AutoSync has out-of-box support for the following trigger types
