Built-in Folder Synchronization
This article covers information relevant only to the version 9.0 beta release. Want to be the first to try our new features? Join the ControlUp Beta Program!
Folder synchronization for AVD, CVAD, Horizon, and Citrix Cloud are now built-in to the Real-Time Console. This means that you can synchronize your folders and machines without needing to import the PowerShell sync script and set it to run with a scheduled trigger.
The built-in synchronization feature doesn’t include advanced site mapping, DNS mapping, or folder mapping features that are included in the sync script. These enhancements will be added in the next ControlUp version.
User actions to be allowed in the ControlUp Security Policy:
Enable Built-in Synchronization
You must use only one method of folder synchronization. If you enable built-in synchronization, don’t also use the sync script scheduled trigger simultaneously.
To enable synchronization:
Right-click on a connection in your organization tree and select Connection Settings.
Click Edit Sync Options.
Select the Enable built-in synchronization checkbox and configure your synchronization settings as needed.
Optionally, select one or more of the following:
Select the Include existing computers checkbox to allow computer movements between any folders. If unchecked, only machines under the synced Cloud Connection/EUC Environment folders can be moved; those outside remain untouched.
Set the Run synchronization every (X) hour(s) toggle to a different duration as needed. The minimum allowed duration is 1 hour (default).
Set the Remove machine when absent more than (X) hour(s) toggle to a different duration as needed. If a machine isn't located in the source folder path after the absent duration, it will be automatically removed from the folder tree.
Your organizational tree shows the synchronized structure of folders and machines from the cloud connections and EUC environments.
