Hi everyone, I've set up Gluu to connect with an Active Directory server using Cache Refresh feature. The AD user data is being synchronized successfully. I was wondering if this feature allows the reverse process, i.e. update user data in Gluu and push these changes to AD/LDAP backend server. Thank you. Kind regards, Jesús

Hi, Jesús. There is no such feature at the moment which would reflect changes you make to user entries via Gluu's web UI (I suppose that's what you mean) to your backend (remote) LDAP server. There is [custom scripts feature](https://gluu.org/docs/ce/3.1.6/authn-guide/customauthn/) which allow you to implement custom logic, triggered at certain events (like user authentication or Cache Refresh pull attempt). So, for example, if your backend directory provides a REST API which could be called from one of those scripts, or you can modify it via LDAP protocol, perhaps you could develop a script that serves your needs. May be my collegues will provide better suggestion, but to the best of my knowledge that's about it. Could you describe a use case where such feature would shine? You are also free to create a feature request [at Github](https://github.com/GluuFederation), if you wish.

Hi, Jesús. Closing this one due to inactivity. You'll still be able to post in it if you'll decide you need further assistance with this one.
