Synchronize inSync users with your Active Directory

inSync On-premise 5.4 Administrator Guide

Overview

When you synchronize inSync users with your Active Directory (AD), inSync queries your AD for user details and deactivates any inSync user who has been removed from your AD.

There are two ways in which you can synchronize inSync users with your AD:

  • Automatic Sync: In this process, inSync automatically queries your AD at regular intervals. You can configure the frequency at which inSync must query your AD. 
  • Manual Sync: In this process, you will have to manually start the synchronization process.
Note: You can only synchronize users whom you imported using your AD. You cannot synchronize users whom you added individually or through a CSV file.

Auto-sync users with the Active Directory

To enable automatic synchronization of inSync user details with your active directory when creating an AD mapping, see Create an AD Mapping,

To update an existing AD mapping and enable the auto-sync feature: 

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage > AD Mappings.
  2. Select the AD mapping for which you want to enable the auto-sync feature.
  3. In the inSync Configuration area, click Edit.
  4. Select the Auto update existing users check box.
  5. Click Ok.

Manually sync users with your Active Directory

To manually start the synchronization process

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage > AD Mappings.
  2. Select the AD mapping for which you want to manually update the user details.
  3. Click Update Existing Users.
