Introduced in the WorkflowGen version 5.5.2, a new web.config parameter allows to reduce dramatically the directory synchronization duration in some cases.
A new option is added to synchronize group members that are associated in a participant only. Actually, in a lot of cases, only few directory groups are associated to WorkflowGen participants. So we do not need to synchronize the members of the unused groups.
Turn ON this new feature if you are experiencing a very long group members synchronization time with your Active Directory.
Must be activated with the new web.config’s parameter
If you add a group to a Workflow Participant, you may have to launch a directory synchronization to refresh the group members without waiting the next scheduled synchronization.
