1.6 Applicability Statement

This protocol is designed for flowing user and group data across the user profile store and external directory services (DS). It is applicable when the protocol client is acting as a broker between directory services and the user profile store.

This protocol was designed with the intention of supporting a scale point of approximately:

  • 2 million users

  • an average of 100 member groups per user profile, up to a total of 1 million member groups

  • 10 million group memberships

This protocol does not specify how the data should be stored in the external directory services, how the protocol client should connect to the external directory services, or what synchronization logic should be used by the protocol client when flowing data between the user profile store and the external directory services.
