Out-of-the-box, Microsoft Entra 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 Microsoft Entra Connect Masterclass! So our technical geeks have developed a new Microsoft Entra 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!

Note: This tool was developed before Microsoft rebranded Azure AD Connect as Microsoft Entra Connect.  All the functionality is compatible with Microsoft Entra Connect, but the tool’s interface retains its original name, Azure AD Connect Rule Tool, and the associated documentation refers to Azure AD Connect.

Oxford Computer Training’s Microsoft Entra Connect 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 wanting
  • Helps you to avoid common mistakes

Installation is simple, and does not have to be on your Microsoft Entra Connect server – expressions are simply copied from Microsoft Entra Connect, edited, and then pasted back again.
