To share information with other sites in your system, you can synchronize cardholders, cardholder groups, credentials, and badge templates.

Before you begin

Prepare the synchronization.


  1. On the sharing host, create global partitions or change the status of local partitions to global.
  2. Create a user with the proper level of administrative privileges over the shared entities so it can be used to connect the GCS roles to the sharing host.

    You might have to create more than one user accounts if the sharing guests have different update requirements.

  3. On each sharing guest system, create a GSC role and synchronize the sharing guest with the sharing host.
  4. Assign local users to global partitions ().
  5. Apply local access rules to global cardholders () and cardholder groups ().
    NOTE: Custom card formats are not shared. If you have shared credentials that use custom card formats, the credentials will work on your local system, but you will not be able to view the card data fields unless the custom card format in use is also defined on your local system.
  6. Create a scheduled task to periodically synchronize your local system to the host.
