    TESTING USER DIRECTORY

    Icon
    Before running synchronization, we recommend to perform the dry run, which retrieves the user data from the remote system and performs the system integrity and constraints check.

    When the run is successful, you can see the list of users and verification status:

    There are several possible verification statuses:

    • Username is empty or too short - user won't be processed
    • User exists - user directory mismatch
    • User exists - will be updated
    • New user - will be added

    Running Synchronization

    You can start the synchronization by clicking the "Synchronize" button.
