Learn how to run ad-hoc jobs from Edusync Microsoft


There may be things that you want to achieve with Edusync Microsoft on a user by user basis. Action buttons have been provided for you to do so and below is a guide on how to use them.


You will first need to select the user that you would like to carry out the action with on the left-hand side with the tick box.


The available actions are as below:

  • Create Microsoft user

  • Ignore

  • Unmatch Microsoft user

  • Download password

  • Delete Microsoft user


Create Microsoft user

This will provision a new user based upon MIS data just as running a. sync would with all unmatched users only with the selected users. It will also then match the Microsoft user to Edusync's MIS procured data.


This will provision a new user based on MIS data, just like running a sync would for all unmatched users, but only for the selected users. It will also then match the Microsoft user to Edusync's MIS-procured data.



This will allow you to put a user in the 'Ignored' section of the directory and ensure that they will not have any sync actions carried out when running a full MIS sync.


Un-match Microsoft user

This will take the user out of 'Matched users' and place it in 'Unmatched users' thus ending Edusync's association with the Microsoft user. You can then re-match the user or recreate a Microsoft user. You may want to do this if you make a mistake in matching your users.


Download password

This will provide a CSV of all selected users Microsoft Workspace passwords but only if it is the password Edusync provisioned the account with, all other passwords will appear omitted from the CSV that is generated.


Delete Microsoft user

This will un-match the user in the Edusync Microsoft directory and also delete the user in Microsoft Workspace. After deleting the Microsoft user you will only be able to reinstate it within 20 days from Microsoft Vault.
