The purpose of this wiki page is to provide the steps to check for pending exports.


A Pending Export is an object that has already been synchronized and is in a Pending Export state on the Source and/or Target Object.  If you review a Connector Space object you will see the Pending Export Tab at the Top.

Reviewing a Pending Export, you can see the following:

  1. Distinguished Name: The name of the object.  For a FIM Service MA, like the one above it is a GUID.
  2. Modification Type: Explains what is going to happen to the object in the Connected Data Source
    1. Add = a new object to be created in the Connected Data Source
  3. Object Type: The type of object that has been modified
    1. Person


  1. In the FIM Synchronization Service Manager Console
  2. From the Tools menu, select Statistics
  3. You will see a dialog appear called Statistics

    *NOTE: You do not have to select a Management Agent, but if you are concerned about just one, then it will be helpful to select a particular Management Agent.

  4. Scroll all the way to the right

  5. Review Export Adds, Export Updates, Export Deletes

    *NOTE: If you have Pending Exports and are experiencing things like performance issues, and/or hangs, it is recommended to clear your Pending Exports and then test to see if you have the same performance issue and/or hang.
  6. If you want to know what those Pending Export objects are, then review the next section to see the objects slated for export.
