Project Online - Active Directory Sync runs automatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Once configured the AD sync in Project Online, I want to know if it will occur automatically when the AD group is upgraded, or if it is necessary to enter the PWA and perform manually.

    My synchronization occurs with a security group of Office 365.

    Is there a way to schedule this process?

    Thanks.

  • Hello,

    The AD sync process runs on an internal timer job that you do not have access to in Project Online - I think by default this runs once a day. Once the AD groups have been set up and added to the Project Online security groups you can force the sync using the "Active Directory Group Sync Options" on the PWA Settings > Manage Groups page, click the save and sync now button.

  • Paul,

    Thank you very much. 
    Do you know if there is some function in PowerShell or WebAPI to perform the same operation as "Save & Sync" button?

    Best regards,

  • Hello,

    There is a PSI method you run the AD sync: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg225862(v=office.15).aspx

    If this was on-prem you could easily call this using PowerShell but that would be a little more difficult for Project Online. You can access the PSI is Project Online but you have to work out how to authenticate against Project Online PSI. You can do this in code quite easily so it is possible but I have not tried in PowerShell.
