The naming and graphical representation of a set of objects participating in a synchronization process is known as a topology. The synchronization flow(s) in a topology are grouped and depicted as pipelines. A topology can consist of one or more synchronization pipelines. Pipelines are auto-generated when the topology is created. You cannot manually create your own pipelines.
An example of a topology with a single auto-generated pipeline is shown below:
An example of a topology with multiple auto-generated pipelines is shown below:
The pipeline ID is required for a variety of scenarios. A few examples are shown below.
