AD Sync Tool release notes

July 2019

АD Sync Tool 1.1.2

The operating system of the AD Sync OVA is updated to CentOS 7.6.

AD Sync Tool v1.1.2 introduces improvements to the LDAP account synchronization mechanism as follows.

  • If the connection to the LDAP server is interrupted, the synchronization process stops. This fixes the issue with deleted user accounts in Syncplicity if the connection to the LDAP server is interrupted during synchronization.
  • The information for AD users retrieved during a scan operation is added to a cache. If the connection to the LDAP server is interrupted, the user scan process stops. This allows the proper handling of multiple userScan configurations in the userScans section of the adsync.xml, and fixes the issue with disabled user accounts in Syncplicity.
  • Users in status Pending Offboarding are no longer deleted from Syncplicity.

The AD Sync Tool is available free for download and the documentation is available upon request from Syncplicity support.
