Sync AD user with Community user



Anyone have a good idea what I should do if I want to sync some values from AD with my community-users. 

For instance. I might want to sync the telephonenumber for all ADUsers with the corresponding community users and add it to a telephoneattribute on the user at a given time. For instance every night at 2am. Or just make sure that the user firstname and lastname is added/updated on the communityuser.

I don't want to go do a lookup in the AD everytime I need to get the telephonenumber. 

What's the best practice here?

Made a scheduled job that did the trick. But I still wonder if this is a good enough solution when users start to pile up.

A scheduled job is definitly a good idé to sync all users information. What I usually do to complement this is a sync when a user logs in. So every time a user logs in the different attributes get synced, and on top of that I also run a scheduled job :)

My thoughts exactly.

In case the user logs in 22 hours after the job has run and he just changed his phonenumber, that could be a bit confusing.

Thanks =)
