Enable directory-linked groups

Verify that a company directory synchronization is not in progress. You cannot save the changes you make to the company directory connection until the synchronization is complete.
  1. On the menu bar, click 
    Settings > External integration > Company directory
  2. Click the company directory name that you want to edit.
  3. On the 
    Sync settings
     tab, select the 
    Enable directory-linked groups
     check box.
  4. To force the synchronization of company directory groups, select the 
    Force synchronization
     check box.
    If selected, when a group is removed from your company directory, the links to that group are removed from directory-linked groups and onboarding directory groups. If all of the company directory groups associated with a directory-linked group are removed, the directory-linked group is converted to a local group. If they are not selected, and a company directory group is not found, the synchronization process is canceled.
  5. In the 
    Sync limit
     field, type the maximum number of changes you want to allow for each synchronization process.
    The default setting is five. If the number of changes to be synchronized exceeds the synchronization limit, you can prevent the synchronization process from running. Changes are calculated by adding the following: users to add to groups, users to remove from groups, users to be onboarded, users to be offboarded.
  6. In the 
    Maximum nesting level of directory groups
     field, type the number of nested levels to synchronize for company directory groups. 
  7. Click 
Create directory-linked groups. For more information, see the Administration content.
