Force Azure AD Connect Sync Synchronization

By default Azure AD Connect will synchronize the directories every 30 minutes however there’s times where you need to manually force a sync.

To do this, fire up PowerShell on the server with Azure AD Connect installed and run:

Import-Module ADSync

Then run:

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta

Generally by the time you’ve logged back into the Office 365 portal, the sync will have finished however if you’re making multiple changes you might want to check the status of the sync:

Get-ADSyncConnectorRunStatus
