Getting or setting the Telephony option value in Skype for Business Server

To get or set the Telephony option value for a Skype for Business Server user object, you need to use the following attributes provided by Synchronization Service:

  • AudioVideoDisabled
  • EnterpriseVoiceEnabled
  • RemoteCallControlTelephonyEnabled

For more information about these and other attributes that Synchronization Service provides for a Skype for Business Server user object, see User object attributes.

The next table describes the combinations of the attribute values that correspond to a particular value in the Telephony option.

Working with Oracle

This section explains how to create or modify a connection to Oracle Database and Oracle Database User Accounts so that Synchronization Service could work with database and user accounts data in the system.

Working with Oracle Database

This section describes how to create or modify a connection to Oracle Database so that Synchronization Service for Oracle Database could work with data in that data system. This section also describes what data you can read and/or write in Oracle Database by using Synchronization Service.

To create a connection to Oracle Database, you need to use Synchronization Service in conjunction with a special connector called Oracle Database Connector. This connector is included in the Synchronization Service.

The Oracle Database Connector supports the following features:


Table 24:  Supported features



Bidirectional synchronization

Allows you to read and write data in the connected data system.


Delta processing mode

Allows you to more quickly synchronize identity data by processing only the data that has changed in the source and target systems since their last synchronization.


Password synchronization

Allows you to synchronize user passwords from an Active Directory domain to the connected data system.


Password synchronization is only supported for user accounts that are authenticated entirely by Oracle Database. The Oracle Database Connector does not support password synchronization for Oracle Database user accounts that use external or global authentication in Oracle terms.

In this section:

Creating an Oracle Database connection

To create a new connection

  1. Make sure that the Synchronization Service computer has the following software installed:

    • Oracle Client. Ensure Oracle Client is configured to connect to the Oracle service that can be used to access Oracle Database that hosts the data you want to work with.

    • Oracle Net Services

    • Oracle Data Provider for .NET

    For supported versions of this software, see the System Requirements section in the Active Roles Release Notes.

  2. In the Synchronization Service Administrator console, open the Connections tab.

  3. Click Add connection, and then use the following options:

    • Connection name. Type a descriptive name for the connection.

    • Use the specified connector. Select Oracle Database Connector.

  4. Click Next.
  5. On the Specify connection settings page, use the following options:

    • Oracle service name. Specify the name of the Oracle service you want to use to access Oracle Database. You can click Refresh to get a list of available Oracle services.

    • Access Oracle service with. Type the user name and password of the account with which you want to access the Oracle service.

    • Test Connection. Click this button to verify the specified connection settings.

  6. Click Next.
  7. On the Specify how to select and modify data page, use the following options:

    • Use data from this table. Allows you to select a database table that includes the data you want to participate in the synchronization operations. You can click Preview to preview the database table you have selected.

    • Use an SQL query to specify data. Allows you to compose an SQL query that provides a more flexible way for specifying the data for synchronization. For example, you can use this option to specify multiple database tables.

  8. Click Next.
  9. On the Specify attributes to identify objects page, use the following options:

    • Available attributes. Lists the attributes that are available in the external data system. Use this list to select the attributes whose values you want to use to generate a unique identifier for each object in the external data system. You can filter attributes by typing in the text box at the top of this list. To select multiple attributes, hold down CTRL and click to select attributes in the list.

    • UniqueID attributes. Lists the attributes whose values are currently used to generate a unique identifier for each object in the external data system.

    • Add->. Moves the selected attributes from the Available attributes list to the UniqueID attributes list.

    • <-Remove. Moves the selected attributes from the UniqueID attributes list to the Available attributes list.

    • Constructed UniqueID. Displays a combination of the attributes whose values will make up a unique identifier for each object in the external data system.

  10. Click Finish to create a connection to Oracle Database.
