Definition of Directory Synchronization

A Directory Synchronization process compares users, user groups and user attributes as they are defined on two or more systems. It applies business logic to detected differences, and automatically updates the users, user groups and/or user attributes on at least one system to match those found on others.

Meta Directory software normally implements a Directory Synchronization process.
