OneSync is a user provisioning tool that can import, edit, manage, and export user accounts. You can import users from a source, manage the users and their properties with OneSync, and export the modified user accounts to a destination.
Sources are pre-existing directories or files that contain user data. You will import this user data from your sources to create user accounts in OneSync. Valid sources include CSV (comma-separated values) files, ClassLink RosterServer, and ODBC (Open Database Connection). Destinations are directories or services that OneSync can export modified user accounts and data to. Valid destinations include Microsoft Active Directory, Google GSuite, Microsoft Azure, and CSV files. You will create Mappings in sources and destinations to link user properties across sources, OneSync, and destinations.
When handling large amounts of users, OneSync offers various features to manage user accounts, including conditional and correlations. Conditionals allow you to select specific collections of users based on defined conditions. Correlations allow you to match and merge duplicate user accounts that would otherwise be considered separate due to differing information between platforms.
OneSync offers three types of syncs: imports from sources, exports to destinations, and dry runs. Dry runs are optional trial runs to test for errors. If a dry run’s activity returns successful, you can export that collection of users with confidence. Activity Logs offer further insight into these syncs, including error messages and action statuses.
Once you setup OneSync, you can automate syncs to manage your accounts for you. OneSync acts as middleware to reduce the time and effort needed to maintain account information in an orderly and secure manner.
