Synchronization Manager

The following are known issues in conjunction with the Synchronization Manager:

  • The metaverse designer will not show all attributes as indexed even if they are.
  •  In particular, when configuration is made through PowerShell, these attributes will not show up as indexed.
  •  Exporting and importing server configuration between servers is not working as expected because not all configuration settings are exported.

Sync Rule Editor

The following lists considerations in conjunction with the Sync Rule Editor:

  • The Sync Rule editor should be considered a “Resource Kit Utility” and does not represent the final product.
  •  All attribute names and functions are case sensitive.
  •  If the case on the attribute or function name does not match it will show as if the attribute/function does not exist.
