Forcing Azure AD Connect to Sync

The new Azure AD Connect Tool was released in April 2017 to replace the legacy DirSync utility for maintaining Identity Management with Office 365.

This new tool syncs much more frequently then the legacy DirSync tool - every 30 minutes by default to be exact.

However when creating a new on-premises user, there may be times where you want to instantly synchronize the user to Azure Active Directory.

This can be done with PowerShell on the new tool with the following cmdlet:

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta

I hope this post has been helpful.
