"clear current state and restart synchronization" checkbox dissapeared in Scim Provisioning App

I'm working on SCIM Provisioning Enterprise App for Active Directory.
In every SCIM provisioning App, Provisioning tab-> Update Credentials there was
"clear current state and restart synchronization" checkbox, which was very useful for R&D purposes.
It disappeared since the last week. Is it a bug?

    From the main "Provisioning" page, there is a "Restart provisioning" button. This performs the same action as the "Clear state and restart synchronization" checkbox. This was an intentional UI change to remove redundant controls for the same action. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused!

    I did find some sort of workaround.

    • Change a minor field in the mappings. (company name was a value I was sending as a constant value)
    • Save
    • Change it back
    • Save again
    • The GUI will ask you to resync all users again.

    And this seems to have the same effect. However: it does take more time.
    For a quick sync -> Provision on demand helps for testing.
