Synchronizing users and roles

This procedure enables you to synchronize the list of authenticated users with the list of users in the Framework Services repository. After installation these lists are in sync. However, when users are added to or deleted from the authentication provider user list, the lists have to be re-synchronized.

Synchronization can be automatic or manual.

Note: After you import a device, manually synchronize user and roles.

Users are imported from the authentication provider as well as from any devices file imported for use with Reporting Services. When a user exists in both the authentication file and the device file, that user is considered authenticated.

Note: As a best practice, transfer any owned or shared content before deleting the corresponding user or role. Any content still belonging to a user you delete is automatically transferred to the Framework Services Administrator.
