Just to accomplish what John said, you can create a schedules task for the following PowerShell script: $UserProfileService= Get-SPServiceApplication 42gg4bda-1hd0-4df6-bfgg-54gd4df33ff $UserProfileService.StartImport($true) P.S. Full Import can be intensive though so be very careful with the schedule.

To avoid this confusion, let's elaborate the main difference between User Profile Service and User Profile Synchronization service. User Profile Service: This service is used to import the users from AD it's one-way sync direction from AD to SharePoint, So if you update any user information from SharePoint it will not be synced to AD.

Late answer but, The User Profile is not responsible in this case. SharePoint recognizes AD security groups and attaching permissions to these groups will cause the permissions to be granted to the User. Unfortunately, due to SharePoint caching the user's memberships on login, changes made to a security group are identified only after the cache has expired,...

When switching from one AD-environment to another, you sometimes end up with users who don't get imported correct. You see them when they don't have first name and last name when they are logged in to SharePoint. They have \ visible instead.

Ok, I know this sounds completely crazy, but here it is: in order for the UPSS to be provisioned and start working, I had to configure the farm service account to have English regional settings.

It's definitely doable. On European SharePoint Conference 2015 in Stockholm, Patrick Curran showed us in a demo how this worked. From an architectural viewpoint this is how it works with the new Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) which is the same as Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) for 2013. The presentation is available here: Expanding User Profiles with ...
