Step 3: Run the configured creating step

To run the creating step

  1. On the Sync Workflows tab, click Run now.
  2. In the Select sync workflow steps to run dialog box, select the check box next to the step you created, and then click Full Run to run the step.

    After the synchronization step run completes, the Synchronization Service Administration Console displays a report that provides information about the objects that participated in the creating step. At this stage, the application does not commit changes to the target Active Directory domain.

This scenario demonstrates how to update user accounts in an Active Directory domain when the information on employees is changed in the Human Resource (HR) database held in a Comma Separated Values (.csv) file.

NOTE: This scenario can be used only if the Employees OU already contains user accounts created with the creating scenario described earlier in this document. Only accounts for previously created employees will be updated.

This scenario has the following steps:
