    uSync Complete - sync users across environments

    Hi Kevin

    Happy New Year!

    Umb 8.18.4

    uSync Complete - 8.11.11-build.20221216.5

    When comparing users between environments, it seems the user Key attribute is used eg. Key="00000011-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"

    We have a number of environments where users have been set up in each environment already which means that the above incremental Key is already allocated to different users. Is it possible to compare users using Username instead of Key?

    Yeah ideally i don't think we should attempt to find users by key. if we don't find by key the fallback is to find by alias.

    Nightly build that doesn't do the lookup by key :

    Non updated hack workaround would be to make the key something that is no going to be found e.g any random guid value or you could replace bit if FFFF

    e.g "00000011-FFFF-0000-0000-000000000000

    then the key lookup will fail and the lookup by email address will kick in instead.

    We are going to finish testing the pending changes for uSync.Complete and release a new version next week - just want to make sure we capture everything

    Thanks for the reply Kevin

    So for the non-updated workaround, how do I edit the key so the sync falls back to the look-up by email address?

    As far as the update goes then the latest release will look up by email address only (or userName)?
