Rebuilding the 1E Catalog

Resynchronize the 1E Catalog using admin access. You can rebuild your Catalog data by running a resynchronization event if you have admin privileges. By default, no one has admin access – you'll need to create an Azure Active Directory group to manage who runs resynchronization events and accesses the admin menu item in the Catalog UI.

Typical reasons for running a re-synchronization event are if you:

  • Think your Catalog data is corrupted or incomplete as a result of normally scheduled synchronization cycles

  • Have not updated your Catalog data over a long period - it's quicker to run a resynchronization event instead of executing a normal synchronization cycle

  • Migrate your Catalog to a newer version – to deduplicate any Catalog entries

  • Have upgraded to a newer version of Catalog.

Rebuilding your Catalog data

Only users with admin privileges can rebuild your Catalog data.

When you run the resynchronization event with site-defined Catalog entries:

  • user - site-defined entries are optionally kept or deleted

  • auto-curated - site-defined entries are kept.

We recommend keeping any user site-defined entries. If you choose not to keep your user site-defined entries, they will be deleted and you will have to recreate them again.

To rebuild your Catalog data:

  1. On the Catalog UI, click Admin.

  2. On the Admin screen under Resynchronize Catalog, click Resync.

    Ensure that the Keep site defined entries checkbox is ticked to preserve your existing site-defined Catalog entries. If not, you will have to recreate all your site-defined entries again.

  3. A progress bar displays synchronization progress.
