More than 2000 users or groups are expected to sync

Check this box if you expect to sync 2000+ users or groups. If you don't check this box, Directory Connector will limit a sync at 2000 users or groups.

If a user has no email address, combine a username prefix with a suffix value to form an email

 Users without real or formed email addresses will be skipped by Directory Connector.

Formed Email = username + Email Suffix

Group filters


Syncing nested groups is not supported by OneLogin.

To include or exclude groups from a sync based on OneLogin roles:

include:Role A,Role B
exclude:Role A,Role B

Test a sync


Before testing or executing a sync, check that Directory Connector is connected to the right cloud server (e.g. US or EU) or self-hosted server. Learn how to do so with the desktop app or CLI.

To test whether Directory Connector will successfully connect to your directory and return the desired users and groups, navigate to the Dashboard tab and select the Test Now button. If successful, users and groups will be printed to the Directory Connector window according to specified sync options and filters:

Start automatic sync

Once sync options and filters are configured as desired, you can begin syncing. Complete the following steps to start automatic sync with Directory Connector:

  1. Open the Directory Connector desktop app.

  2. Navigate to the Dashboard tab.

  3. In the Sync section, select the Start Sync button.

    You may alternatively select the Sync Now button to execute a one-time manual sync.

Directory Connector will begin polling your directory based on the configured sync options and filters.

If you exit or close the application, automatic sync will stop. To keep Directory Connector running in the background, minimize the application or hide it to the system tray.


If you on the Teams Starter plan, you are limited to 10 members. Directory Connector will display an error and stop syncing if you try to sync more than 10 members.
