Active Directory Sync Summary
The Active Directory Sync summary page allows you to view all changes related to your current EMP Cloud account and your Active Directory account. You can use this summary page to:
You may need to identify a user or functional account to be exempt from sync.
For example: You may wish to convert a user account to a functional account in EMP Cloud. Yet, when you perform the sync, AD will force it back to a user account. You can choose to exempt these accounts from the sync process and therefore preserve the EMP Cloud setting.
Not properly exempting users/accounts could result in billing/licensing numbers being higher than expected
ADDING A USER ACCOUNT FOR EXEMPTION
The object will be removed from the selected table and be moved to Exempt from sync table. It will no longer be subject to AD changes.
