Increase "Update Group" sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see in the audit logs that the group members update once every week.  How can I set it up so that the members or "Update Group" sync happens more often?  I would like for it to sync once every hour.

  • Hi Jscharfenberg,

    I assume your question is related to the built-in Scheduler service in Azure AD connect sync. if yes, then the steps below outline how to change the sync cycle to run every hour. Please let me know if this is not what you are looking for and we can investigate further.

    CustomizedSyncCycleInterval is the setting you will need to change to achieve the desired sync interval and you can change the value of the setting via Set-ADSyncScheduler.

    Here is the cmd syntax + example to set it to run every hour.

    Syntax: Set-ADSyncScheduler -CustomizedSyncCycleInterval d.HH:mm:ss
    d - days, HH - hours, mm - minutes, ss - seconds

    Example: Set-ADSyncScheduler -CustomizedSyncCycleInterval 01:00:00
    Changes the scheduler to run every hour.

    To see your current configuration settings, go to PowerShell and run Get-ADSyncScheduler.
