Entra ID to Workday email writeback

Maria 0 Reputation points

Hi all,

I have a question regarding Tutorial: Configure Workday writeback in Microsoft Entra ID - Microsoft Entra ID | Microsoft Learn

Consider the following scenario:

  1. User on workday has their email field empty
  2. Provisioning is set up and run and user's email field gets populated in workday
  3. User's email gets manually removed or changed in Workday

My question is how long after the changes in Workday have been made will the provisioning service try to update the email again if at all?

thank you

    Hello Maria,

    Thanks for your question

    By default, the provisioning service runs every 40 minutes. Any changes in Workday, such as the modification of an email field, will be detected and updated in the next cycle, typically within 40 minutes after the change
