Composer package for the Azure AD Delta Sync flow.



If you are looking to use this in a Symfony or Drupal project you should use either:

Direct installation

To install this package directly run

composer require itk-dev/azure-ad-delta-sync


To start the flow one needs to call the Controller run(HandlerInterface $handler) command.

Therefore, you must create your own handler that implements HandlerInterface.

Example Usage


use ItkDev\AzureAdDeltaSync\Handler\HandlerInterface;

class SomeHandler implements HandlerInterface
    public function collectUsersForDeletionList(): void
        // Some start logic

    public function removeUsersFromDeletionList(array $users): void
        // Some user logic

    public function commitDeletionList(): void
        // Some commit logic

Be aware that removeUsersFromDeletionList() may be called multiple times, as we are limited to 100 users per request.

To start the flow provide a HTTP Client that implements PSR-18 CLientInterface, and the required options seen in the example beneath.

Note that this example uses Guzzle HTTP Client. For a list of PSR-18 implementing libraries click here.

use GuzzleHttp\Client;
use ItkDev\AzureAdDeltaSync\Controller;

$options = [
  'tenant_id' => '', // Tenant id 
  'client_id' => 'some_client_id', // Client id assigned by authorizer
  'client_secret' => 'some_client_secret', // Client password assigned by authorizer
  'group_id' => 'some_group_id', // Group id provided by authorizer

$handler = new SomeHandler();

$client = new Client();
$controller = new Controller($client, $this->options);


General comments

Note that this package does not do the synchronization of users, instead it provides a list of all users that currently are assigned to the group in question.

Should the specified group contain no users an exception will be thrown. This is to avoid using systems to be under the impression that every single user should be deleted.

Development Setup

A docker-compose.yml file with a PHP 7.4 image is included in this project. To install the dependencies you can run

docker compose up -d
docker compose exec phpfpm composer install

Unit Testing

We use PHPUnit for unit testing. To run the tests:

docker compose exec phpfpm composer install
docker compose exec phpfpm ./vendor/bin/phpunit tests

The test suite uses Mocks for generation of test doubles.

Check Coding Standard

  • PHP files (PHP_CodeSniffer)

    docker compose exec phpfpm composer check-coding-standards
  • Markdown files (markdownlint standard rules)

    docker run -v ${PWD}:/app itkdev/yarn:latest install
    docker run -v ${PWD}:/app itkdev/yarn:latest check-coding-standards

GitHub Actions

All code checks mentioned above are automatically run by GitHub Actions when a pull request is created.

To run the actions locally, install act and run

act -P ubuntu-latest=shivammathur/node:focal pull_request

Use act -P ubuntu-latest=shivammathur/node:focal pull_request --list to see individual workflow jobs that can be run, e.g.

act -P ubuntu-latest=shivammathur/node:focal pull_request --job phpcsfixer
