GALsync Introduction – Part 1 :: The GUI

10 Sep

GALsync is written in C# using .NET Framework. The GUI is Outlook 2007 like. In this blog I describe how the most important features are represented in our Graphical User Interface (GUI).


Policies
If you want to synchronize data from your own Active Directory forest (or your Exchange messaging organization) you will define policies. Export policies represent a set of objects from Global Address List you want to share with another forest. Import policies represent a received set of objects from the other Exchange organization.

Top Level Tasks
At top level GALsync offers general configurations valid for all policies, a detailed error log (which we use also for support cases), and programs help documentation.
In the buttom line you see who is running the GUI, which accounts runs the executable scheduled sync and if the required Windows service is online.
