Refresh

Reloads the User object data from the data in Active Directory.

Syntax

void Refresh()

Discussion

This method refreshes the user information in the cached object to ensure it is synchronized with the latest information in Active Directory.

Exceptions

Refresh throws a COMException if an LDAP error occurs. LDAP errors can occur if the connection to the LDAP server fails, the connection times out, invalid credentials are presented, or there are other problems communicating with Active Directory.

Example

The following code sample illustrates using Refresh in a script:

...
'Specify the zone you want to work with
set objZone = cims.GetZoneByPath("LDAP://CN=corporate,CN=zones,CN=centrify,CN=program data,DC=sierra,DC=com")
'Get the user object
set objUser = cims.GetUserByPath("LDAP://CN=pat.hu,CN=Users,DC=ajax,DC=org")
'Get the UNIX profile for the user
profile = objUser.UnixProfiles
'Enable the user’s UNIX profile
profile.UnixEnabled = True
'Reload the user object
objUser.Refresh
...
