Configurator/Activities

From UmsWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This settings determines if activities coming from the administrative system will be active in UMS.

If there are no settings configured, activites can not be used in UMS product.

UMS will synchronize users in an activity; by removing users that do not belong (anymore) and adding users that should be there.

Synchronization information usually comes from the administrative system and is stored in the UMS Database.
