  4. 4. What is the user profile service application ?  The User Profile service application stores information about users in a central location. Social computing features use this information to enable productive interactions so that users can collaborate efficiently. In order to provision My Sites, enable social computing features such as social tagging and newsfeeds, and create and distribute profiles across multiple sites and farms, you must enable the User Profile service application.

  7. 7. User Profile Import Process [1]
  8. 8. User Profile Import Process [2] 1. Which profile properties can you synchronize from directory services or business systems? 2. Which synchronized profile properties will map to default properties? 3. If the required profile property doesn’t map to a default one, will you create an additional property for it? 4. Which properties should be available to the Search service? 5. Which user profile properties should be visible on the user’s My Site website?
  9. 9. User Profile Import Process [3]-options User Profile Import • Import user information from AD DS to user profile properties • Can only import from AD DS • Quicker than user profile synchronization • Quicker to execute • No export SharePoint option • Filter to include specific user based on user account attributes User Profile Synchronization • Import user information from external data sources such as AD DS, BDC • Export user profile properties to AD, but every property can only be imported or exported, no two way synchronization is available • You can identify any profile information that you want to exclude from synchronization before the initial synchronization takes place. • Filter to include specific user based on user account attributes
  10. 10. Note that ….
  11. 11. Synchronization Schedule It supports • Recurring Schedule • Support only incremental synchronization [transferring only changes items] • Non- Recurring Schedule • Support either incremental or full synchronization
  12. 12. My Site • My Site is a personal site for individual users in an organization. Although an organization can customize My Sites, by default the top of every page displays tabs • You can specify the My Site location either when setting up the User Profile Service application, or after the User Profile Service application has been created • As a best practice, the location you select for My Site deployment should be a dedicated web application. Although My Sites can exist on a web application with other content, putting My Sites on a dedicated web application will enable you a greater degree of management and control over My Sites, with less impact on other web applications
  13. 13. My Site [2]  If you have multiple farms, each with a User Profile Service application, such as in a scenario with multiple offices, geographically dispersed, you must plan for My Site deployment to ensure that multiple My Sites, User Profiles one for each farm, are not created. You can prevent this behavior by configuring trusted host locations from the User Profile Service application of each farm, using audiences to specify users who have a My Site hosted by a different User Profile Service application. To Setup My Site
  14. 14. Audience  Audiences give site collection administrators, site owners, and content editors the ability to target content to specific collections of users When an audience is used to target content, such as navigation links or Web Parts, the targeted content only appears to users that are part of the corresponding audience.  After you create an audience and specify one or more rules for the audience, an audience must be compiled before the audience is available for use to target content.  Audiences are not a security feature. Although audience membership results in certain items, such as navigation links and Web Parts on a page being hidden from some users, the content in those links and Web Parts may still be accessible to users who are not part of the targeted audience if the user knows the URL or if a link is provided elsewhere
