The ability to automatically remove users not in a group during AD group import is available in FileCloud version 18.2
During AD import, if a user is not in a group, the account is not removed automatically from the FileCloud group. This logic is based on the scenario where an administrator manually adds other users, not in the group, and those users should not be removed.
However, for a scenario where an enterprise uses a large number of temporary workers, such as a construction company that uses a large number of contractors, if they import a large number of users based on groups, when a contractors are no longer employed and, and therefore not a member of that group, you can now select a checkbox on the AD Group Members Import dialog box called Remove members not found in AD group. This allows admins who need to remove accounts on import to do so automatically. If you have manually created accounts that you don't want deleted but aren't a member of a group, then you would not select this option and the accounts will be imported.
