      The Microsoft Dynamics Security Synchronization Utility is a standalone executable application that enables the synchronization of users across applications. The application supports various Microsoft applications, including Windows SharePoint Services, Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Business Portal for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

      The utility is also a framework made up of a suite of APIs that can be used to generically and simply interact with the security subsystems of applications. The utility reads from and writes to a configuration file that stores the property values that are specific to each application provider. These properties vary by application. The utility’s user interface allows you to specify values for these properties and writes them to the configuration file.

      This document describes the ApplicationRoleProvider class and explains how to develop assemblies that will allow third-party applications to work with the synchronization utility, customize property validation, and deploy the assembly. Code samples are included for all the classes mentioned, and a comprehensive example of creating a provider also is included.
