Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 Feature of the Day: Microsoft Dynamics Security Synchronization Utility

Why this feature is cool!

The updates to the Microsoft Dynamics Security Synchronization Utility will allow administrators to manage the process of synchronizing roles across the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 components. The utility is exposed via an MMC console which communicates with a synchronization web service. The console provides the ability to synchronize in any direction by specifying a source and destination, along with some rules about what should happen along the way. The actual work of adding users from roles is the responsibility of the providers that are plugged in, providing extensibility for any application or security infrastructure that can be programmatically accessed via some API.

The utility contains the following providers out-of-the-box:

* Microsoft Dynamics GP

* Business Portal for Microsoft Dynamics GP

* Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP
