Forcing synchronization with the identity source

The StorageGRID system periodically synchronizes federated groups and users from the identity source. You can force synchronization to start if you want to enable or restrict user permissions as quickly as possible.

Before you begin


  1. Select ACCESS MANAGEMENT > Identity federation.
    The Identity federation page appears. The Sync server button is at the top right of the page.
    Note: If the saved identity source is not enabled, the Sync server button will not be active.
  2. Select Sync server.
    A confirmation message is displayed indicating that synchronization started successfully.
