Synchronized properties

The Master Account Management policy defines a list of properties to copy from the master account to the shadow account. These properties are referred to as synchronized properties. When you use Active Roles to set or change a synchronized property of a master account, the policy causes Active Roles to set or change the value of that property on both the master account and shadow account.

In addition, Skype for Business Server User Management provides a scheduled task that copies synchronized properties from every managed master account to the corresponding shadow account. The task runs on a scheduled basis to ensure that each of the synchronized properties of the shadow account has the same value as the corresponding property of the master account. If a synchronized property of the shadow account has changed for whatever reason, Active Roles changes that property back to the value found on the master account. For further details, see Scheduled synchronization later in this document.

The following table provides the default list of synchronized properties. You can configure the policy to synchronize additional properties or remove individual properties from synchronization.

Substituted properties

The Master Account Management policy defines a list of properties that appear on the master account but reflect the properties of the shadow account. These properties are referred to as substituted properties. When you use Active Roles to view properties of a master account, the policy causes Active Roles to retrieve the values of the master account’s substituted properties from the shadow account. When you use Active Roles to set or change a substituted property of a master account, the policy causes Active Roles to set or change the value of that property on the shadow account.

The policy does not allow you to narrow down the list of substituted properties. However, you can specify your custom list of substituted properties in addition to the default list. If you do so, the resulting list of substituted properties includes all properties from both the default list and your custom list.

Back-synchronized properties

The Master Account Management policy defines a list of properties to copy from the shadow account to the master account. By default, the list is empty. If you add a property to that list, the policy ensures that any changes to that property on the shadow account are replicated to the master account.

Master Account Management policy actions

The Master Account Management policy causes Active Roles to perform the following actions depending on the change request submitted to the Active Roles Administration Service.

Table 23: Policy Actions

Request

Actions

Enable an existing Active Directory user for Skype for Business Server

Active Roles retrieves the properties of the existing user (in the external forest), and then performs the following actions:

  • Create a shadow account in the Skype for Business Server forest, and populate its properties with the properties of the user from the external forest
  • Enable the shadow account for Skype for Business Server
  • Set the msRTCSIP-OriginatorSID attribute of the shadow account to the value of the objectSID attribute of the user from the external forest
  • Create a reference to the shadow account on the master account

If the user from the external forest already has a shadow account (for example, created by Exchange Resource Forest Management), then the policy re-uses the existing shadow account instead of creating a new one.

When creating the shadow account, Active Roles executes all policies that are applied to the container that holds the shadow account.

Modify Skype for Business Server user properties of a master account

If the change request includes any changes to substituted properties, Active Roles first makes the requested changes to the substituted properties of the shadow account. Next, Active Roles makes the requested changes to the properties of the master account, and then updates the synchronized properties of the shadow account with the new property values found on the master account.

Deprovision a master account

Active Roles deprovisions the master account, and then temporarily disables the shadow account for Skype for Business Server.

Undeprovision a deprovisioned master account

Active Roles undeprovisions the master account and then re-enables the shadow account for Skype for Business Server.

For undeprovisioning master accounts to have an effect on shadow accounts, the container that holds deprovisioned master accounts must be in the scope of the Built-in Policy - Skype for Business - Master Account Management Policy Object (or a copy of that Policy Object).

Delete a master account

Active Roles deletes the master account, and then removes the shadow account from Skype for Business Server.

The Master Account Management policy requires that shadow accounts be in the scope of the User Management policy provided by Skype for Business Server User Management. This enables Active Roles to perform the Skype for Business Server related actions on the shadow account.
