Initial Synchronization After Installing AccuSync with Existing ITSs

Follow this procedure for running the initial synchronization if you have installed AccuSync for the first time and are using it with existing AccuWork and ITS systems, one or both of which contain issue records.
  1. In AccuSync, set the watermark or specify one or more mapping definition filters to limit the sample of issue records that AccuSync will synchronize initially. See Setting Watermarks and Mapping Definition Filter if you need help with this step.
  2. If only one system has issue records, set the Synchronization Type to one-way for each synchronization pattern you plan to run; set as the master system the system that currently contains records. See Editing Synchronization Patterns if you need help with this step.
  3. Run the synchronization as described in Running an AccuSync Configuration and review the results.
  4. If the results are what you expect:
    • Stop the synchronization.
    • Remove any watermarks or filters you created in Step 1.
    • If you set the Synchronization Type to one-way in Step 2, set it back to two-way.
    • Back up the AccuSync configuration for safekeeping. See Backing Up and Restoring AccuSync Configurations for more information.
    • Start the synchronization again.
