You may want to manually synchronize a user with an identity policy set to ensure that a user account has the right privileges, or complies with a compliance policy.
You can manually synchronize a user by using the Synchronize User task in the CA Identity Manager User Console.
Note: For the Synchronize User task to work properly, the User Synchronization option must be set to Off, and the Account Synchronization option must be set to On Task Completion or On Every Event. For better performance, choose the On Task Completion option. These options are set in the Profile tab for the Synchronize User task.
The Synchronize User task includes the following tabs:
Note: The Currently Matched Policies tab displays only the identity policies that apply to the user at the time you access the Synchronize User task. When the user is synchronized with those policies, changes may occur that trigger other identity policies. To prevent CA Identity Manager from applying the new policies until you have reviewed them, set the recursion level for identity policy sets to 1 in the CA Identity Manager Management Console. After submitting the Synchronize User task, access it again to review the policies.
