Identity Matching in School Data Sync

When configuring SDS, you'll match each student and teacher identity from your SIS and CSV files source directory to the corresponding user object in Azure Active Directory. First, choose among the three available attributes from the source directory. Make sure the attribute has a related and equal value in Azure Active Directory. This selection will view the selected attribute as a simple string value, or alpha-numeric characters without spaces. The string value must match the exact value contained in one of the three target attributes. You can also append a domain suffix to the source value to complete the match. See example below:

SDS will only allow the creation of three sync profiles. If you are trying to sync a full data set for 500,000 or more users, including student enrollments, you should contact the SDS Onboarding Team for support.
