Synchronization procedure

  • Report Server will update the group’s name and description from the Active Directory Server.

  • Report Server will delete the groups if the group has been deleted from the Active Directory Server.

  • Report Server will delete the user from Report Server group, if the user has been deleted from Active Directory Server group. Report Server will add the user into Report Server, if a new user is added into the Active Directory group. If the new user is not present in the Report Server, then a new user account will be created in the Report Server and will be added into the group.

After synchronization completes, the number of groups modified, deleted, duplicated will be shown in the success message box as shown in the below figure.
