When you finish setting up a channel, you can choose to activate it immediately or activate the channel as needed.
A service provider connection must be active for any provisioning channels to be enabled. You can deactivate a channel at any time. When a channel is inactive, provisioning is suspended but single sign-on (SSO) and single logout (SLO) transactions can still occur if an associated connection is active.
- Go to .
On the Activation & Summary tab, select
Active or Inactive to toggle the
status. Click Save.
When a channel is activated, initial provisioning occurs as soon as the synchronization-frequency time period expires. See Configuring outbound provisioning settings. The default is 60 seconds. Because initial provisioning can consume considerable processing time, depending on the amount of data that needs to be transmitted, administrators should plan accordingly.
To modify channel settings, click the associated heading in
the Summary column.
