Out-of-the-box, Azure AD Connect’s Synchronization Rules Editor has only a tiny window for editing, and doesn’t provide any syntax checking for sync rule expressions, so you can’t see what’s going on. We find that frustrating – and so have our students attending our Azure AD Connect Masterclass! So our technical geeks have developed a new Azure AD Connect Rule Tool. It’s a free download!
In this video, our CEO Hugh Simpson-Wells explains and demos what the Rule Tool is, how it works, and why you need it!
Oxford Computer Training’s AADC Rule Tool:
- Finds existing rules for review and editing
- Presents your expressions in a large editing window with different elements picked out in different colours, and any syntax errors highlighted
- Uses intelligent code completion to predict which functions and attributes you might be ewanting
- Helps you to avoid common mistakes
Installation is simple, and does not have to be on your Azure AD Connect server – expressions are simply copied from Azure AD Connect, edited, and then pasted back again.
