This operation is used to begin a full user profile import of the specified user profile content source.

 <wsdl:operation name="StartFullImport">
         <wsdl:input message="StartFullImportSoapIn"/>
         <wsdl:output message="StartFullImportSoapOut"/>

The protocol client sends a StartFullImportSoapIn request message and the protocol server responds with a StartFullImportSoapOut response message, as follows:

  • The protocol server begins the full user profile import for the user profile content source specified by the contentSourceName element of the request message.

  • If the user profile import is in a state where it cannot be started or is already started, the protocol server MUST ignore the start request.

  • On error, the protocol server MUST throw a SOAP fault message.
