  1. When enabling this solution, you must also add a API secret. It can be anything you want
  2. We recommend to name it after the instance id


Note: If you have issues importing data for Russian users, or adding data to personal information portlets like email or national id after an instance refresh has been performed on your system, please re add the secret here. If you do not, the secret from the source system will be set here and the sync will fail and throw an error.
