GroupID 8, 9 and 10 - Synchronize


If you prefer to execute a job through the command line rather than GroupID Management Console, Synchronize provides a command-line utility. The utility resides in the GroupID installation directory by the name, Imanami.GroupID.Synchronize.exe. You can use this utility in the Windows command prompt to execute the GroupID Synchronize job.

Locate the Job Configuration File:

The command to run a Synchronize job requires the name and path of the particular job’s configuration file. To get this information, do the following:

  • If you installed GroupID only for your use, enter the following command (for GroupID 8) in the Windows Run dialog box:

    %APPDATA%\Imanami\GroupID 8.0\Synchronize\Jobs


  • If you installed GroupID for everyone who uses this computer, enter the following command (GroupID 8) in the Windows Run dialog box:

    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application data\Imanami\GroupID 8.0\Synchronize\Jobs

Run a Synchronize Job:

  1. Using the command prompt, enter the following command to run a job:

    C:\>Imanami.GroupID.Synchronize “Path of the configuration file\Configuration file name.dtmconfig”


    For example:

    C:\>Imanami.GroupID.Synchronize "C:\ProgramData\Imanami\GroupID 8.0\Synchronize\Jobs\corp users.dtmconfig"
  2. Press Enter.

View Synchronize Command-line Help:

  1. In the command prompt, enter the following command:
    C:\>Path to GroupID installation directory\Imanami.GroupID.Synchronize /Help

    For example:

    C:\>Program Files\Imanami\GroupID 8.0\Imanami.GroupID.Synchronize /Help
  2. Press Enter.
