Synchronization Procedure

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

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

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