BES5 Refresh available users via API



I am using the BES 5 API to create BES enabled users.  However, the BES 5 API cannot find new exchange users until the next day.


I found that if I logon to the BES Administration Service, click on "Create a user", click on "Search", that a "Refresh available user list from company directory" button is provided at the bottom of the screen.  When I press the "Refresh available user list from company directory" button, it only takes around 60 seconds for the new exchange user to show up.


Is there a method I can call in the API to kick off the "Refresh available user list from company directory" command.  Alternativey, is there a command line tool I could use to achieve the same result?


We have a fully automated provisioning system for a hosted environment.  Performing manual tasks or waiting 24 hours before new exchange users shows up does not meet our requirements.

Re: BES5 Refresh available users via API

Hi yournames,


This feature is currently not available through the BAA however this has been requested already for consideration in a future version of BAA. This may be possible using the BRK/BUA utilities but you would need to check with the BES 5.0 forums for more information on this:





Goodbye everybody!

Re: BES5 Refresh available users via API



I find myself in this exact same position. Did you resolve it in the end?


Thanks, Colm
