You can make the following settings here:

  • Sync: If you have made changes in Microsoft Entra ID, you can synchronize them here immediately. In addition, all data from Microsoft Entra ID is automatically synchronized every 30 minutes. 
  • Reconnect: If you have (accidentally) disconnected from the Cortado Administration Portal in Microsoft Entra ID, e.g. under Enterprise applications, you can reconnect it here. To do so, click Reconnect. All existing settings, assignments, groups, etc. will not be lost in this case. 
  • Disconnect: Here you can disconnect the connection between the Cortado Administration Portal and Microsoft Entra ID again. Please note that all groups that you have already imported will be deleted again. In addition, all settings that you have already made will be lost. Policies, profiles, apps, and managed configurations will be unassigned. When you reconnect afterwards, all these settings will have to be reconfigured.
