I am wondering where information about users (user properties) is stored in SharePoint Foundation.
In SharePoint Server the User Profile Service Application (UPS) syncs in user properties and creates user profiles in SharePoint. In addition, when users access a site, they get added to the User Information List of this site. (This is also discussed in this question.)
But what about SP Foundation?
There, when I go to My Settings for a user (via upper right user dropdown) I get to the page
/_layouts/15/userdisp.aspx. There I can see the following properties:
- Mobile Number
- About Me
- Job Title
- SIP Address
My questions about this:
At which point are the property values initially pulled from AD into SharePoint? When accessing the site? Is there a job?
What if a property value changes in AD - will the change be updated in SharePoint? When accessing the site? Is there a job?
Is this user information stored/cached centrally? How do I access the centrally stored information (using PowerShell)?
