Every time synchronization between Security Center and the external data sources occurs, the data is compare by the plugin in a specific order.

Synchronization occurs for one entity type at a time, in the following order:
  1. Cardholders
  2. Cardholder groups
  3. Cardholder group memberships
  4. Credentials
  5. Cardholder pictures
The synchronization process for each entity type consists of the following steps:
  1. The plugin fetches data from each data source.
  2. The plugin maps the fetched data to configured Security Center fields.
  3. The plugin looks for entities to be merged using global keys.
  4. The plugin creates entities in Security Center or updates existing entities.
  5. The plugin resolves relationships between entities.
