Microsoft SQL Server sources in synchronization tasks

When you configure a synchronization task to use a Microsoft SQL Server source, you can read data from a single object or multiple related objects. To read data from multiple sources, you must define relationships based on key columns or create a user-defined join condition.
To optimize performance, you can configure a filter in the Data Filters tab where you can select an object, field, operator, and enter a filter value based on which the synchronization task runs. You cannot include UTF-8 characters in a data filter on a Microsoft SQL Server source.
You can also configure an advanced filter to define a more complex filter condition, which can include multiple conditions using the AND or OR logical operators.
The following table describes the Microsoft SQL Server source properties:
Name of the active source connection.
Source Type
Type of the source object available. You can choose from the following source types:
  • - Single
  • - Multiple
  • - Saved query
Source Object
Name of the source object.
Display source fields in alphabetical order
Displays source fields in alphabetical order. By default, fields appear in the order returned by the source system.
