This article explains why some Active Directory users are deleted from Security Center after upgrading to Security Center 220.127.116.11.
Systems that were upgraded to Security Center 18.104.22.168 using an installation package that was downloaded from GTAP before July 9, 2020.
After you upgrade to Security Center 22.214.171.124, existing users who were part of a user group that was managed by an Active Directory with the Create user on first logon option enabled are deleted from Security Center when the first Active Directory role synchronization is performed (either manually or using a scheduled task).
The user group and the group configurations remain intact, but user-specific settings are lost, such as privileges, partition access rights, alarm recipients, event-to-actions, private tasks, and so on.
