Azure AD Connect sync: Scheduler

Controlling Azure sync via PowerShell, this is useful 🙂

This feature was introduced with build 1.1.105.0 (released February 2016).

To see your current configuration settings, go to PowerShell and run

Get-ADSyncScheduler

It could be that you have an urgent change which must be synchronized immediately which is why you need to manually run a cycle. If you need to manually run a cycle, then from PowerShell run

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta

To initiate a full sync cycle, run

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial

from a PowerShell prompt. This will start a full sync cycle.
