The hub has the ability to synchronize/push some configuration/data on the nodes. This allows an administrator to, for example, create a category on the hub and sync it to all the nodes. If the category is renamed or deleted at a later time hub it would be synchronized to the nodes again.
What can be synced?
- A predefined set of configuration. This needs to be set up by a developer.
- It can be used to force an addon/theme to be enabled or disabled on all the nodes.
- AuthenticationProviders (SAML, OAuth2, …)
