When a synchronization run is scheduled and the limit that was established is exceeded, the synchronization is not performed. If an email notification is included in the profile, a notification that synchronization has not occurred appears.
When the Synchronization Tool is run interactively, and the limit that was established is exceeded, a message similar to the following is displayed:
Synchronization Limit Exceeded. There are 23 deletions. This exceeds the limit for this configuration. Do you want to force the update? Click Yes or No, as required.
Threshold limits warn when the number of added or deleted entries exceeds a specified amount. Threshold limits help to protect from mistakes in a configuration profile. Using filters to exclude or modify data from the data repository helps further.
