AADSync Delta Sync Process RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    When we execute the Delta sync, i could see below steps are executing in AADSync connectors.

    [1] AD Connector - Delta Import
    [2] AAD Connector - Delta Import
    [3] AD Connector - Delta Synchronization
    [4] AAD Connector - Export
    [5] AAD Connector - Delta Import
    [6] AAD Connector - Delta Synchronization
    [7] AD Connector - Export

    Could you please help me to understand what will happen on each steps. Or is there any blog which already has these information?

  • O boy.  Are you in trouble or what? Suggestion, read some literature on MIIS or ILM or FIM

    [1] AD Connector - Delta Import: Copy all changes from last run (delta) from AD into Connector Space (please don't ask what is the connector space) (Example a new user was created, it will be imported into Connector Space)
    [2] AAD Connector - Delta Import: Same as above from Azure
    [3] AD Connector - Delta Synchronization: Consolidate the changes between Connector Space and Metaverse
    [4] AAD Connector - Export: Copy any changes Metaverse has and Azure does not to Azure. Write to Azure
    [5] AAD Connector - Delta Import: Also called "Confirmation Export". Makes sure what we wrote on previous step is was successful. 
    [6] AAD Connector - Delta Synchronization: Confirm with Metaverse

    [7] AD Connector - Export: Same as above

    In other words, you are synchronizing you AD with Azure.

    This diagram, explains the relationship between Source, ConnectorSpace (CS) and Metaverse (MV)
