About UnitySync

UnitySync is the culmination of many years working with email directory environments. UnitySync is a Web-based directory synchronization application that connects 2 or more directories, and syncs data between them. After a synchronization run, end users see email addresses, contact information, etc. from other directories within their own directory address books.

UnitySync is not itself a directory. It only stores configuration data, log files, an intermediate LDIF file, and a small SQL database file to track deltas. In essence, UnitySync stores only what it needs to run a synchronization.

How UnitySync Works

UnitySync runs on a web server, allowing users to administrate their syncs using a web browser. Each configured connection will read from one (Source) directory and write to another (Destination) directory. Create the same connection in reverse to get a complete 2-way synchronization run. In its very first execution, each UnitySync connection does a full directory read, synchronizing whatever combination of objects you?ve asked it to synchronize. On subsequent synchronization runs, UnitySync reads the entire Source directory but only writes changes (deltas) to the Destination directory.

Configuration of each connection requires the input of directory information including IP, User ID and Password for both the Source and Destination directories. You will also specify which Source objects to pull (the default is all) and where to create the new contacts on the Destination.

The default configuration will create mail enabled contacts in your Destination directory using options and attribute mappings included in the default map template. You may further customize your UnitySync connection to take advantage of features that allow you to manipulate or organize your synced data to meet your unique requirements. These optional features are easily configurable within each connection. commonly implemented customizations include Display Name formatting, structure creation, Join with Existing Objects, Swap Proxy, and Custom attribute mapping.

You may download a fully functional copy of UnitySync from our Download page. You will receive a temporary key to get started. You may contact Technical Support Team to extend your evaluation or with any questions you have as you evaluate and test UnitySync in your own environment.
