Say, i have 100 users in user profile.

Requirement : Get all user profile changes from a given date-time value to Now(date time) in a collection .Iterate collection to do the necessary changes. Problem : If i am updating some user profile say , A. Then i am not able to get the changes when i am calling UserProfileChangeCollection with the specified time of the token. Question : Do i need to restart any service or timer job to make the changes appear in the UserProfileChangeCollection immediately. [I am able to see the changes some 24 hr later. ]

Any idea.

I may be missing what you're trying to do, but I believe once a change has been pushed to UPS, the "User Profile Change Job" timer job has to run. With the default configuration this runs hourly.


You might want to check out this thread which covers how to setup the farm for tracing User Profile changes: Tracing user profile changes without iterating all the through?

  • I referred it earlier. I followed the steps to enable logging.Still not able to get the later changes. Sep 27, 2011 at 12:57
