I have an OpenLdap directory which syncs the users whenever I make any change in user/class filters.
Lately, I've been testing a bit more with the OpenLDAP directory and whenever I make a change in the userFilter, the directory starts to sync automatically.
This is something that I want.
But I want to know how to stop the directory from syncronising once it has begun?
The total time to sync is about 50-60 minutes for my JIRA server, so lets say I wanted to stop the current sync because I want to make some changes that I forgot?
How do I do that?
Because waiting for directory to syncronize completely takes just too much of time.
In order to stop the sync you would need to take the directory offline. Here is how that would have to work:
The issue you'll run into is that as long as the third party directory is enabled in CROWD it will attempt to sync.
As you can see that is less than ideal. I can see the benefit of that feature though. I would recommend you go to JAC and create a ticket so our developers can consider adding in the future. Hopefully this helps!
This is incredibly frustrating as the sync begins automatically before you've finished configuring things like group filter. On a large LDAP or AD system (the one I'm working with contains 250,000 users and 118,366 groups) this means you have to wait hours for the first full sync to complete, where it queries every user and group in the directory... and then once that's finished... several more hours while it syncs again to remove the redundant directories from Crowd.
It's an atrocious design - the sync should not begin until the Crowd Admin pushes a button!
