If you are using Azure AD Connect and want to force a synchronization using PowerShell, stick around and we are going over the process.
Perform a Delta Sync…
The synchronization process on the current release uses PowerShell, and here is the cmdlet required.
Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType delta
Performing a Full Synchronization…
If the requirement is to perform a full synchronization, the following cmdlet can be used. Keep in mind
Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType initial
When the cmdlet does not work from PowerShel…
The module that allows the cmdlets above is the ADSync.psd1 and it can be found here.
In case, the cmdlet is not available, the administrator can load the module by running the following cmdlet:
Import-Module “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure AD Sync\Bin\ADSync\ADSync.psd1”
