UserSync synchronizes user-related data between external systems and Privacera. The following are the general types of UserSync:

  • Synchronization by pulling user data from external systems into Privacera.

  • Synchronization by pushing user data from Privacera to external systems.

For pull-based user provisioning, UserSync works with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) , LDAP-SSL, and System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) protocols and with applications built on those prototocols, such as Active Directory (AD), Azure Active Directory (AAD), and Okta. UserSync pulls an initial set of defined identities from these systems and keeps the set of identities updated with refresh queries, approximately once an hour.
