I am using Sharepoint 2013 Enterprise with an administration user. The option "User Profile Synchronization Service" is missing in Central Admin/Manage Service Applications

Do you know why? Thanks

  • Have you created the service application? – Robert Lindgren Feb 3 '14 at 12:40
  • Do you mean the User Profile Service Application ? Yes that is started – Gyonder Feb 3 '14 at 13:14

The User Profile Synchronization Service is not listed in Central Admin/Manage Service Applications.

Instead you find it under Central Admin / System Settings / Manage services on server.

Beware that you need to run Internet Explorer as administrator, or use the Central Administration launcher on the server, to be able to see this menu option

  • Before asking you can also search on google for where the actual location for service. – Ankur Jan 28 '16 at 18:18
  • +1 for stating the administrative part. you have to run as admin else some options may be missing as it's most unwanted thing for microsoft windows. – Ankur Jan 28 '16 at 18:20

If missing on "Services on Server" - run in powershell:

Add-PSSnapin microsoft.sharepoint.powershell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
