We basically have something similar, which boils down to a few set comparisons, then creating and executing the right actions for each set.

For code, see https://github.com/hpcugent/vsc-administration/blob/master/bin/sync_slurm_acct.py and https://github.com/hpcugent/vsc-administration/blob/master/lib/vsc/administration/slurm/sync.py

Kind regards,
