Managing users

As employees come and go from your organization, the corporate directory changes, and there are some steps that you, as the administrator, must take to make sure that those changes are reflected in the product by keeping the HCL Connections membership tables up-to-date with the changes that occur in your corporate directory.

If the Profiles application is installed, when you inactivate a user or make changes to user data, such as change a person's last name or email address in the Profiles database, that change is automatically pushed out to the membership and login tables of the other HCL Connections applications.

If Profiles is not installed in your deployment, you must apply the changes to the membership tables for each application separately. The only way to update user data in the membership tables for the other applications is through a set of administrative synchronization commands.
