Duplicate Account Prevention
Enable duplicate account prevention? is a new Advanced Setting for destinations and exports. When enabled, you can select destination fields. If an exported user's fields match exactly with an existing user, the export will fail. This is meant to deter the creation of duplicate accounts and needless incrementation. Users of exports that fail in this fashion most likely have a counterpart in the destination already based on the selected fields, and can be linked together via Correlation. It is not advised to select any type of username as criteria for this setting since the exported user's username would be automatically incremented, and so wouldn't match any destination user's usernames.
Username Settings Have Been Moved
In each applicable destination type, Username Settings have been moved from Advanced Settings into separate slide overs in Default Mappings. You can open a slide over by clicking the blue list icon to the right of the username field. These slide overs contain configuration settings for each username type including:
- Alternate username formulas
- Auto-resolve non-unique username conflicts?
- Resolve username conflicts with (at minimum) how many digits?
- Start auto-resolve from which number?
- Increment all users' usernames?
New Condition: Property Value Changed
Property Changed is a new condition that will trigger when a specified destination field's value is updated. This includes scenarios in which the property is set for the first time since the property's value goes from null to non-null. This condition can be applied to Groups or Events & Actions.
Improved Date, Time and Grade Formatting
Conditions that use datetime values now accept a wider range of formats. This includes, but is not limited to, formats that use slashes or dashes for dates, and 24-hour or AM/PM formats for time.
Dates can be formatted in a number of ways, so long as the value for the month comes before the day.
Time values are not required.
Grade formatting has also been improved for the specific values "PK" (pre-school) and "KG" (kindergarten), which are now interpreted as -1 and 0, respectively, when used in the context of greater than or less than conditions.
New Active Directory Setting: Set Passwords Before Adding Users to Groups
In Active Directory, the order of account creation matters if you are using advanced password policies associated with specific groups. In Advanced Settings, you can now select "set passwords before adding users to groups" if your default domain policy is more lenient than that which is applied to the user's groups and you'd like to assign a lenient password to the accounts.
CSV Sources: No Header CSVs
While creating a CSV source, you have the option to specify whether or not the CSV file contains headers. If the file does not contain headers, OneSync will generate numbered headers for each field. These headers will then be inserted into the file. You can then edit and import from the source as you normally would. Once you create and save a source, you cannot change the setting specifying whether or not the file contains headers.
