    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to set an email notification to Admin when account is deprovisioned from SQL or disabled in AD either through Rule Extension or Sync Rule. Any solution will be helpful.

    we are getting the following error for all our extensions when trying to run the Sync Operations. All extensions have similar errors with event ID 6159 generated in the application event log. They all started occurring after I deleted a attribute flow rule in one of the agents. This is happening in Production and are facing lot of other issues because of this.

    The management agent "Peoplesoft" failed on run profile "Full Import Full Synch" because of a problem with the initialize method on the extension object. The extension dll is "PeoplesoftExtension.dll" and the stack trace is:

    Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.UnexpectedDataException: String or binary data would be truncated.

    The statement has been terminated.

    Please advise on how to fix this as I have no clue where to start and am new to FIM.

    Only Full Import(Staging ONLY) is successful.

  • 06/25/14--23:44: setting SPN for FIM Portal
  • Experts,

    We set spn for http request.

    like setspn http/servername domain\account.

    Do we also need to set SPN for HTTPS request? Kindly suggest.

    Is there a way to prevent the FIM Synchronization service to stop auto-starting when it's queried by WMI?  I'm working on an MA scheduling application.  When I test stopping the service while remotely invoking the WMI MA execute method via my app, the sync service stops and immediately starts again.  I can run an MA on the server manually and stop the service without problems.  It seems that WMI calls directed at FIM causes the sync service to start if it's not. I can disable the service before stopping it, but that's not really what I'm after.

    Is this supported?

    Does anybody have this working today?

    Does the functional level of the forest effect anything with FIM?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hello everyone!

    I have the following strange behavior with Søren Granfeldt PowerShell MA on Export:

    I am using CSEntryChange objects on Export, so i want to determine only changed values in multivalue attributes.

    Here is the example of export:

    To display changed values in debug file i am using following powershell code:

        $atrChng = $_.ChangedAttributeNames
        foreach ($can in $atrChng)
            "Name: $can" | Out-File $DebugFile -Append
            foreach ($ValueChange in $_.AttributeChanges[$can].ValueChanges)
                 $val = $ValueChange.Value
                 $valmodt = $ValueChange.ModificationType
                 "Value: $val $valmodt " | Out-File $DebugFile -Append

    In my debug file i have the following result:

    Name: members
    Value: u6000041 Add 
    Value: u6000042 Add 
    Value: u6000048 Add 

    This means that all attributes, even those that not have been changed are display as added attributes.

    I have an idea that this behavior is because of Object Replacement type export of this MA. If i am right, does this mean, that there are no ways for me to get only changed values instead of sort out all of them? In my case i should exactly know changed values to execute the target system API functions AddUserToGroup() or DeleteUserFromGroup() for each.

    The other option is that i am doing something wrong :)

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Trying to use Sorens Granfeldts, Create Object WF activity to create dynamic groups.

    In a standard function evaluator activity I generate the Filter as [//WorkflowData/Filter]
    The "string" I set it to is:
    <Filter xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" Dialect="" xmlns="">/Person[ObjectID = /*[ObjectID = '8dfcb5e8-ff01-400c-8ca7-2a0002d2d2d4']/ComputedMember]</Filter>

    In the CreateObject activity I then just have [//WorkflowData/Filter],Filter among the initial values.

    The creation works if I remove this attribute so the rest of the attributes seems to be working.

    The creation fails however end I get the error below in the Forefront Identity Manager event log.

    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Have anyone used this WF activity to create dynamic groups and can tell how to set the Filter?

    we do have a FIM 2010 R2 (4.1.3496.0) over here and are trying to get our users and Groups to the mv.

    The first step was successfull, we got all our users, then we proceeded with the next step (Group sync)

    now we get an error at the init your Environment step while running fimma full sync.

    Error: sync-rule-scoping-filter-invalid-xml

    Synch Rule Error: Could not infer the type from the attribute referened in <csAttribute>. Please verify that it is defined in the schema and has a supported type.

    By using preview i have the following on "Join and Projection"

    i tried to get back to the previous state, but was not sucessful ...

    p.s. i tried to update the Schema, no changes...

    Any hint would be helpful!

    Best regards

    Hi Everyone,

    I am facing issue with FIM SSPR OTP Email based with one of My FIM Deployments. First of All I explain environment:

    We have two different type of Users: For One Type of users We need QA Gate based Password Reset and For Other set of Users We need OTP email based Password Reset.

    NOTE: FIM Portal, Service & SSPR are in HA.

    What Approach I have followed:

    1) For QA Type User, I kept one Default "Anonymous User Can reset their Password" and in target resources selected "Specific Set for those Users" and In requester I kept "Anonymous User".

    2) For OTP Mail Type Users, I created a new MPR and Password Auth Workflow(Read Only OTP Activity) and Action workflow (Active Directory Password Reset Activity). And In MPR, in target resources selected "Set for this Type Of Users". and In requester I kept "Anonymous User".

    This approach was working in My personal Test lab which was not in HA. But now In HA, QA Based Password Reset is working fine and OTP based Password reset is throwing error. I am getting OTP mail but after entering reset Password, My process is unable to process successfully. On FIM Portal, in search request: This requeste is getting PostProcessingError. And Request is stating that "The Workflow instance ****** encountered an internal error during processing" and In applied policies it is showing MPR which I created.

    Please help.

  • 06/30/14--10:04: User Management with IDM
  • I am implementing an IDM solution from another vendor. The consultant is telling me that all user group management must now be accomplished with the IDM solution. And if group membership is changed with another method (ADUC or PowerShell), it will be overwritten by IDM upon the next change within IDM. the app wants to lead now that it is in place.

    I find real issue with this. I am loath to give up powershell and ADUC. Is this true? Do all IDM solutions require you to use them for all ongoing user management? Note: I am talking about group management mostly, not every possible aspect of user management.

    Is this how FIM works?

    I need to extend schema of group object in metaverse and FIMService DB also.
    I added into Metaverse and i am able to update the attribute coming from a SQL source. However I am not able to send export to FIM Service MA.

    I created the attribute with same name in metavere and FIM Service. New attribute is binded to group object in FIM Service. Defined the mapping
    in FIM Service MA also.

    Can anyone suggest. Is this some MPR permission issue?

     The FIM 2010 R2 client has been deployed by sccm to 100 users, about 10% of our users claim that post client install, once they've logged into Windows, IE automatically pops up and opens the SSP Registration page. Upon registering the users never have the IE prompt again. The FIM client was installed with the default options only for SSPR, not the Outlook plugin.

    Can someone point me in the right direction of turning these automatic regsitration pop ups off?

    Its easy to find a powershell script to disable an AD account that has been inactive for a given period of time.

    However, just trying to figure out how this would work with a typical FIM deployment, where HR is authoritative for user data which is provisioned to AD via FIM. If we were to implement a daily "look for inactive users and disabled them and move them to disabled OU" AD powershell script, we effectively would make AD authoritative for these values - DN & userAccountControl?

    At the moment DN is determined by "location" values in HR, and userAccountControl by employeeStatus values in HR.

    With equal precedence being deprecated, just wondering if anyone has had a similar scenario, and how you have dealt with it?

    thank you,
