03. Synctool installation instructions

Introduction

Installation of the Synctool contains downloading a zip-file and unpacking the zip-file on the desired Synctool installation location.

The Synctool is used for account management in Zivver. The Synctool can create, update, disable or delete personal accounts and functional accounts in Zivver for a large number of accounts. The synchronisation is one way, from the source (e.g. Active Directory, Exchange) to Zivver.

Prerequisites

Visit the Synctool prerequisites if you are unfamiliar with the prerequisites for the Synctool.

Installation

If your organisation uses Single Sign On (SSO) to log users in to Zivver, make sure you have configured SSO before synchronising accounts with the Synctool.

Follow the steps below to install the Synctool on a server. The Synctool is in most cases installed on an already existing synchronization or application server, but can also be installed on its own dedicated server, local machine or domain controller as long as the machine adheres to the Synctool prerequisites.

  1. Request the latest download link via Zivver.
  2. Save the zip file.
  3. Extract the zip file.
  4. Copy or move all extracted files to the desired location on the chosen server.

Next steps

After moving the extracted files to the desired location you can open the Synctool by running the executable. The next step is to open existing or create new Synctool profiles.
