Once you have configured automatic metadata synchronization (scheduling) on local instance(s), the scheduler will run at that specific time and synchronize (download and import) the metadata from the central instance. No manual intervention is required from the users at the local instance(s).

After the scheduler has completed the metadata synchronization, the local instance will have the metadata exactly as created on the central system.
