    I have Forefront Identity Manager 2010,

    It's lifespan is about 5 years,

    When I go to the FIM Portal in the pending section I can see all of my pending request,

    I have there 4-5 old requests, 2-4 years old that I can't delete.

    Some of them are enroll and some are offline Unblock requests,

    My only guess that I didn't had the chance to check yet is that the user that made those requests is disabled in AD,

    Besides that I have no idea how to delete those request,

    Please help me to delete them.

    for FIM or MIM Portal installation, can we have FIM Service account without mailbox? I am trying to install MIM portal but it keeps failing and the log just says there is some issue with the installation package. I didnt setup exchange on my lab, so i wanted to check whether the FIM Service mailbox is a mandatory prerequisite for Portal installation. 

    Thanks for your help

    I have MIM up and running and was hopping to use the quickstart module tool to get SSPR going but I am having an issue. 

    Firstly, I cannot find any documentation relating to MIM2k16/QuickStart tool, but I did notice that it does exist in the installation directory, so I figured I'd give it a go.

    When I run Import-Module QuickStart, I get the StrongName error as mentioned in the FIM2010 Documentation for the tool. I have added the registry entries as the 2010 documentation recommends, and restarted, but I continue to get the StrongName error.

    I was wondering if anyone else has tried to run this tool on MIM 2016/Server 2012R2? Or, if anyone has gotten this error and resolved it?

    Here is the error that I get:


    Thanks for any assistance!

    I have a mail notification process that sends an email when a person moves out of set.

    However, the move out also applies when the user is deleted, thus emails are sent that contain no data e.g. [//Target/AccountName] is blank.

    Is there a built in way of validating that [//Target/AccountName] contains something, before getting to the Mail Notification Workflow activity? I considered that I could use an Authorization activity, but can't see how that would work.

    I see the other alternatives being - to create a custom workflow activity (with an If Else condition) or to use something like the PowerShell workflow Activity.

    Any advice gratefully received.

    We are maintaining SAP Roles read from an SAP Portal as Security groups in the FIM Portal (FIM 2010 R2). The members of the roles are maintained as members of these security groups and all the members are also users on the Portal.

    Now we have a requirement where we also need to read the date the role expires for a user (end date) from the SAP Portal and show it to the user in the "My Security Groups" page against every role that he may have.

    The major problem here is how do we maintain this many-to-many (many users have many different roles with different end dates) relationship in an attribute. Since each user will have multiple roles and for each of these roles his membership for it will have a different expiration date, then how do we capture this in FIM. The current set up does not provide any attribute which will help us to maintain this information for every role for a user.

    Any suggestions on what kind of custom attributes we can use or is there any other workaround to this problem?

    The next step is to also display that end date information for each role of every user in the My Security Groups page. I tried to test it by adding a dummy attribute in the configuration file but it is not showing up in that page. What could I be missing here?

    I have to retrieve all the users from FIM Service DB. I am able to retrieve single valued string attribute values for all the users from FIM Service DB through SQL query. But, I am unable to fetch the users with multivalued attribute values and integer values from that DB using SQL query.

    Could you please help me in building a SQL query for fetching multivalued and integer attribute values from FIM Service DB.

    Thanks & Regards

    ADMA inbound - added msDS-cloudExtensionAttribute17 attribute and also added it to person schema as string.

    But, it is missing from the FIMMA "Select Attributes" page even with Show All selected.  It shows up on under the FIMMA "Configure Attribute Flow", on person in the MV side.  It's not available for me to make a direct flow.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Stu

    hopefully this is an easy one... let's assume that I have a portal based workflow where I can get the value of an attribute for an object which happens to be a collection of values (or multivalued attribute).  I want to then create a new collection which will contain multiple values.  The new collection will may or may not contain some of the values of the original collection.  so, I want to check if the new collection contains one or more of the values of the old collection, and if it does not, then I want to add the value to the new collection.  is this even possible out of the box with native FIM capability?  how are others doing a simple foreach loop?

    While working with Azure Active Directory Connect (AADConnect). I noticed there is a tool called "CSExportAnalyzer.exe".

    From the documentation this tools seems to be a helper utility to the CSExport to help process the output XML into a friendlier CSV format. My question is can we use this utility for FIM\MIM on reporting any pending exports from the output of that application's respective CSExport.exe.

    In my lab, I tested it with some pending export data from MIM, and seems to process as expected. Curious what Microsoft's stance is on using this utility for FIM/MIM

    Hello all, 

    I have recently been asked to purpose a solution for a problem with FIM 2010 R2 and MS AD system accounts.

    The customer asked for import of all the systems accounts from AD that are outside of OUs set in AD management agent. After that the accounts will be present in FIM and its reports. However the customer wants to prevent any changes to those accounts from FIM and any automation processes.

    I can export the accounts from those specific OUs in AD and to prepare CSV or db management agent to import them into metaverse.

    The tricky part for me is how to prevent any changes to those specific accounts. 

    What is the best approach in your opinion?

    So far I have managed to think of two possible ways to achieve the task: 

    To add specific value to those system accounts using the management agent settings and after that to set filters on the rest of the management agents using this attribute and prevent synchronization to the rest of the systems? 

    To make them members of a new Set and to use that Set as exception in Outbound synchronization rules?

    I'm pretty new to FIM configuration and any suggestions are highly appreciated.

     Thanks in advance.

    I am at the "AD User Inbound Synchronization Rule" section in the setup of MIM 2016.

    I am working on the Inbound Attribute Flow

    The instructions call for you to create 8 rules as follows:

    Rule 1



    Rule 2




    Rule 3



    Rule 4



    Rule 5



    Rule 6



    Rule 7



    Rule 8



    My issue is, for rule 1, the f attribute does not exist.  EmployeeType does not show as a source and neither does givenName.

    Has anyone gotten MIM 2016 working.  There are several errors in the technet article and I have managed to figure most of them out, but I am stuck at this point.  Looking in AD, the f attribute does not exist.  The other sources do exist, but I cannot get them to show up in the Inbound Attribute flow choices.

  • 10/24/15--12:20: Password extension and PCNS
  • Hi,

    I want to propagate password changes from AD to an external system .

    The external system exposes a webservice I must call to inform the system about the password change

    I'm not exporting any attributes to that system, only importing.

    The password change will be propagated from AD to FIM (via PCNS) and from FIM to the external system via the password extension dll and the webservice.

    I don't have any agents exporting attributes (except the AD agent). Do I need to add a FIM MA to the solution in order to use the password extension and call the web service, or can I call the web-service in the password extension code?

    Many thanks,
