    We'd like to move the MIM service account mailbox to Exchange Online for notifications & approvals - and we understand that its just a matter of re-running the MIM 2016 SP1 Portal/Service installation and selecting the EOL settings in the dialog box.

    However, after running this, do we also need to re-run all the post SP1 hotfixes (that are currently applied to MIM)?

    thank you.

    Is it possible you could add "Reason:" field to every form in Outlook add-in in future add-in versions ? At the moment this "Reason:" field is only available when Declining requests but we have a demand for that field also when people using Join/Add Members request forms so the owners of the groups would know why requestors want to join the groups.

  • 12/03/18--04:46: MIM PAM check user role
  • we are using Microsoft Identity Manager, as there is no option in the GUI to check what PAM role does a user how, is there a powershell cmd to check what PAM roles does a user have?

    Hello, I have been able to successfully upgrade my MIM system to 4.4.17949.0 without issue.  The system is running fine under 4.4.17949.0.  I recently attempted to apply hotfix and I am receiving the following fatal error during the upgrade of MIM Portal and Service.  If anyone has seen this before and knows a solution I would appreciate any insights.

    Hi all,

    I performed all the steps which included in documentation of microsoft for self service password reset. I read all question and answar on technet but i did't find the right solution. 

    For user account name, domain and resource sid is coming in the portal and i am able to login in the fim portal with a non admin user and user have the account in A.D. 

    I check all required MPRs are enabled and user is coming in the password reset user set.

    My fim portal and A.D. are installed on different server.

    but when i click in the fim portal for register for password reset it shown an exception--

    Password registration portal URL is not configured. please contact your helpdesk or system administrator.

    Can anyone help  me to resolve this issue. I will be very thankful for the same.

    Hi greetings to all,

    I need to know the complete steps for validating any attribute in MIM portal. For example 'Company' 
          must be
                 'Abc' (default value) or
                 'Bcd' or
                 'CIA' or
                 'apple' or
                 'microsoft' or
                 'Glassdoor' or  


    Also, another query is that how to validate the attribute is required (must be filled). If the attribute upon user creation say last name is empty or not filled then it should show some error message.

    I could troubleshoot the issue so that i cna confirm that the password notification service on the domain controller of our production active directory environment is working.

    The FIM stuff is used to synchronize the password of the AD user with the password of a NetIQ eDirectory user.

    The change is transmitted with the LDAP protocol.

    The stuff worked for years but now since weeks - after several reboots of the server for different reasons we noticed that it doesn't work anymore.

    The first thing to do is to see if the passowd change notification of the domain controller has been received from the FIM server but i have no clue which event it should be.

    I will try to go through all events in the timeframe of some minutes after PCNS event is recorded on the DC.

    Any further hints are welcome.

    I have four MA's.

    ADMA, SPMA, HRMA, MIMMA all have "Configure Deprovisioning" set to "Make them disconnectors" Object Deletion Rule is set too "Delete metaverse object when connector from any of the following management agents is disconnected" All four are selected.

    Desired effect. When and object is deleted from any one of these (MIMMA, SPMA, ADMA or HRMA) external sources the Metavers object will be disconnected followed by any remain CS objects that were linked to it.

    What I'm seeing.  I delete a user object from MIM console.  Perform a full import using the MIMMA. It show 1 delete and the object is removed from MIMMA connector space, but when I trigger a fullsync, Expecting the disconnect to remove the MV object, instead the MV Object is re-ADDED to the MIMMA CS and upon the next export recreated in the MIMMA console. What am I doing wrong?

    We have an Exchange Hybrid environment, and MIM is issuing the 'enable-remotemailbox' cmdlet against the on-prem Exchange server. AADConnect then creates the online mailbox, when it runs every 30 minutes.

    We would like for MIM to send the user a 'Welcome Message'...however, we can only do that once AADConnect has run and created the mailbox (otherwise the mail will NDR).

    What are some of the ways that MIM can use to confirm that the remote mailbox has been created by AADConnect?

    - Does AADConnect write something back to on-prem AD that we can check? Maybe check for the existence of the "msDS-ExternalDirectoryObjectID" attribute in on-prem AD? Or if "msDS-ExternalDirectoryObjectID" starts with "User_"?

    - Or does MIM have to issue a Exchange Online Powershell query to find out if the mailbox has been created...if yes, what should we look for?

    Thank you,

    On the user creation page of FIM portal, I wanted to have country field must be filled and should not be empty. So I checked the Required field from schema management>binding>country.

    But as soon as I submit to apply the change it gives me error access is denied. So what is causing this error

    Hi everyone.

    We have an ECMA2.0 management agent used to import employee/student data that is provided to us by a middle ware system that populates several SQL tables.  I should mention that this MA has been working for several years without issue and the issue we're seeing only started recently.

    A delta import of the MA completes with discovery errors.  In the error list below there are three errors titled "entry 108", "entry 209", and "entry 125".  Each error type is 'invalid-attribute-value'.  So this suggests that someone upstream has given us some fields that don't conform to our data types/lengths.  If I click an error I get no useful information, just the error and entry number.  Distinguished name is "<unavailable>", and the 'Error details' button is greyed out.

    My assumption was that "entry 108" refers to the 108th add/update/delete/whatever it tried to process.  I enabled logging for that MA, then counted through the records it gave me and checked the data for 108, 109 and 125 but the data looked fine, in fact those accounts are already in the metaverse and the values in the log for those records already exist in the metaverse.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can troubleshoot this further?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm currently running across a problem when a user is attempting to reset their password via either the client or the portal. They are able to authenticate against the phone gate we have in place, but when resetting their password they are presented with the following error page:

    An error has occurred. Please try again, and if the problem persists, contact your help desk or system administrator. (Error 3000)
    Go to Self-Service Password Reset home page

    On the server running the MIM Service, the event log error is showing:

    System.Management: System.Management.ManagementException: Invalid namespace 
       at System.Management.ManagementException.ThrowWithExtendedInfo(ManagementStatus errorCode)
       at System.Management.ManagementScope.InitializeGuts(Object o)
       at System.Management.ManagementScope.Initialize()
       at System.Management.ManagementObjectSearcher.Initialize()
       at System.Management.ManagementObjectSearcher.Get()
       at Microsoft.ResourceManagement.PasswordReset.ResetPassword.ResetPasswordHelper(String domainName, String userName, String newPasswordText)

    I've worked through the configuration outlined in the document i've pasted a link to at the bottom (as i apparently can't post links yet). So as far as i am aware shouldn't be any issues with permissions. The event log error seems to indicate an issue communicating to the WMI on the server running the Sync Service, but i'm struggling to see why.

    Has anyone else come across this before?

    Hi All,

       We have a requirement where we want MIM portal to be used by external user's residing in a separate AD different from the AD(employees or internal users) with which MIM is configured. Can this be possible if we can get the user's to MIM portal with a Separate MA configured with the external user AD. I am not sure if the authentication will ever happen without any trust to that domain or is there any way we can authenticate with that domain like ADFS or any windows authentication menchanism. Any hints regarding this will be appreciated.

    Hey all, 

    So, not entirely sure what happened - using the basic documented MIM AD and FIM Agents in Sync tool, followed up by the Inbound / Outbound Group Sync rules in portal. All of a sudden a few random users were removed from Groups and I am not sure why, or even where to look for a logical explanation. 

    MIM Is getting all AD users INbound 

    MIM Is getting a selected OU for Groups (other groups exist outside of this OU) 

    MIM Outbound rule is pointing to a specific OU to create Groups from the portal. 

    The groups get created in the Metaverse but don't show up in AD, but running it will remove some users from Groups that are not in this "specific OU" just in the "In Bound Groups OU" - 

    Any ideas?

    In the connector flow the field userPrincipalName is checked under Select Attributes

    Under Configure Attribute Flow the field is defined as follows:

    When I process new imports I get the following error:

    Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.AttributeNotDefinedAsSourceException: Attribute "userPrincipalname" is not declared as a dependency.

       at Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.Impl.EntryState.GetAttribute(String attributeName, IMacroCollectionBase collection)

       at GTI.IDAM.IDHubSync.MIMConnector.MFAADIafAnygtMemberfirmID(CSEntry csentry, MVEntry mventry) in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Synchronization Service\SourceCode\GTI.IDAM.IDHubSync.Dev\GTI.IDAM.IDHubSync\GTI.IDAM.IDHubSync.Import.cs:line 149

    The code referenced on line 149  is:

     if (csentry["userPrincipalName"].IsPresent)

    So why am I getting the error that it is not declared ??

    Hi Everyone,

    i wish to use FIM SET and Group as Enterprise RBAC. I have gone through the article at the link below. I wish to take this further by extending the application Role with attributes that will be required for entitlement (literally serving as permission) in the target application.

    My question is how do I query the members of the Resultant Group to sync to the Target application such that iterating through the Group membership (users) actually surface the defined Permission attributes on the Group Object. I don't want to define the Custom attributes on the user object. Is this doable and Any XPATH query sample that can help ?

    Help appreciated in advance

    I've searched as much as I can but unable to find a clear definition. According to

    "For any resource type that has an Object Type Mapping with a metaverse resource type, any object projected to the metaverse will provision to the FIM MA connector space.  Synchronization Rule Provisioning (tools->options) has no affect on this behavior"

    If this is the case, what is the purpose of Sync Rule Provisioning?

    I am configuring an ESAE environment using MIM 2016.  We will be using PowerShell scripts and the PAM commandlets to migrate admin accounts from the corporate domain to the red forest, migrate groups to create the shadow principles in the red forest, and manage roles.  I do not want to use SharePoint.  All ESAE installation instructions include the installation of SharePoint with MIM.  Is SharePoint REQUIRED or can the MIM be installed without SharePoint?

    I was wondering if anyone is happy to share their step by step MIM installation. I don't mind any of the version at this time as i just need to get one working. i have tried multiple documents online including and i still cant get it to work. It all looks like there is always something missing in everydocumentation i have used.

    i've had tried rebuilding my dev environment 12 times but i still cant get it to work. I'm not sure if its is permission issues or the steps i am following is wrong but the major hurdle has always beenMIM portal which end prematurely. There are someSharepoint steps not mentioned in Microsoft's documentation but exist is some blogs for previous installations.I'm not sure if that has changed or the documentation is not complete.

    i'll really appreciate your help if anyone can sharetheir owndocumentation on how to install MIM.
