Stop caching users and user groups.

When creating or updating users and groups information in Azure AD, updating the Microsoft Authentication Users and User Groups cache in Devolutions Server can take over a day if the Azure AD tenant contains a high number of users and groups.

Upon creation of a new Devolutions Server instance with version 2023.1 or later, when enabling Microsoft Authentication, the option is disabled by default so that users and groups can be imported without waiting for the cache to update. The cache is enabled by default in version 2022.3 or lower, and can be disabled following an upgrade to version 2023.1 or higher.


To have Devolutions Server interact directly with Azure AD without relying on its Microsoft Authentication Users and User Groups cache, disable the Enable cache feature option in Administration – Server Settings – Authentication – Microsoft Authentication.
