FIM 2010: Management Agents from Partners

FIM 2010: Management Agents from Partners

Forefront Identity Manager includes a number of different management agents to connect to a variety of data sources. To enable you to connect to other data sources, FIM includes the Extensible Connectivity Management Agent (ECMA). To interact with a data source, the ECMA uses a connected data source extension. A connected data source extension is a Microsoft .NET Framework assembly that is implemented in the form of a dynamic link library (.dll) file.

You can create this extension by using any programming language and compiler that creates a .NET Framework assembly.

For more information, see Creating Connected Data Source Extensions.

There are a number of partners that have created Management Agents using the ECMA to connect to a number of different systems or just to enhance connectivity options that are available out of the box.

If you are a partner and have updates, please join the TechNet wiki community and make updates and we will review before the page is updated.

Centrify

"Centrify's core capability is to extend Active Directory's authentication, authorization and group policy capabilities to non-Microsoft platforms such as UNIX, Linux and Mac. In doing this "identity consolidation" into Active Directory, UNIX attributes such as UNIX UIDs, home directories, etc. are stored within Active Directory, including the ability to map multiple UNIX UIDs to a single AD account (this technology is called Centrify Zones). "

In order to simplify provisioning of UNIX user profiles within Active Directory, Centrify provides a Provisioning Agent that leverages Active Directory Groups to automate the management of Centrify Zone profiles. Adding a user to the Active Directory control group for a specific Zone will cause the Zone Provisioning Agent to add a UNIX profile for that user to the Zone, similarly if you remove the user from the group it will delete the UNIX profile, and in this way Forefront Identity Manager only needs to manage an Active Directory Group's membership in order to manage the provisioning of Centrify UNIX profiles.

Also, because Centrify makes the AD username/password the global username/password, FIM's self-service password reset capabilities reach beyond Windows and into hundreds of non-Microsoft systems. For a free version of Centrify's software for Linux/AD integration, check out http: //www.centrify.com/express/ . . "

Oxford Computer Group

Company website: http: //oxfordcomputergroup.com/

Information: info@oxfordcomputergroup.com

Oxford Computer Group (OCG) has developed numerous management agents for FIM 2010, which we can provide to partners and customers. Most were originally created as part of a specific implementation. OCG has developed and refined a number of these agents for wider adoption, documented here. Please contact us for more information.

 

Office365 MA

Oxford Computer Group (OCG) has created a purpose built Management Agent that is empowering organizations as they move to Office 365. The OCG MA provides organizations with greater flexibility and control, with the enhanced functionality that FIM provides for user management.

OCG’s Office365 MA provides:  

  •     automated Office365 provisioning
  •     flexibility and control over who has access to what
  •     automated licensing of users
  •     accelerated deployment of Office365

In addition our solution is proven to be able to link one or more data sources with multiple tenancies in the cloud. This delivers an advantage for organizations where a ‘one-size-fits-all’ email policy is not appropriate. Different groups can be set up within different Office 365 tenancies to allow each group to manage its own email policies.

 

Delta Generator MA

Oxford Computer Group's Delta Generator is a Replacement for the Microsoft SQL and Oracle MA. It has been developed to accelerate synchronisation in environments with large numbers of users and groups, or those that require a rapid synchronization schedule, the Delta Generator is a very useful addition to a FIM deployment. This component adds delta imports for systems that do not support deltas. To put it simply, one of its unique features is that it only imports those objects (accounts, groups, etc.) that have been updated since the last synchronization cycle.

A common use of the SQL Server MA is to generate group memberships from metaverse data. This is an extremely useful technique, but the MA’s performance is impeded when large numbers of groups or users are involved. By replacing the SQL Server MA with the Delta Generator, the import facility can be made orders of magnitude faster.

 

Exchange MA

Oxford Computer Group's Exchange MA makes it significantly easier to create, maintain, disconnect and delete Exchange Mailboxes (user, resource mailboxes and contacts). The MA is able to check and guarantee the uniqueness of mail addresses (mail and proxies). Furthermore it supports mailbox quota and protocol settings management (OWA, MAPI, IMAP etc.). The administration of distribution groups is additionally also possible.

The mailbox permissions can be kept up-to-date by FIM. It allows managing mailbox permissions like send-as, send-on-behalf, full-access, etc.

The solution allows forest-wide mailbox provisioning as well as forest-wide and cross-forest mailbox relocation.

It is a universal PowerShell Management Agent that allows the provisioning of various systems to be managed by PowerShell (e.g. Lync, SharePoint, Exchange, Office 365, NetApp…) Any PowerShell script can be used as part of provisioning, modification or deprovisioning logic by integrating it into the PowerShell Script called during Export by the Management Agent. Modules can be loaded locally on the fly to enable the use of extended Commandlets. The Import Script supports Delta Imports to speed up the Import process. Errors can be logged into EventViewer, to a file or directly into the Synchronization Engine. The agent also supports outbound password changes as part of the Password Change Notification Service (PCNS) system, by using Password Management Script.

 

PowerShell Transaction MA

The OCG PowerShell Transaction Management Agent enables the execution of any PowerShell command inclusive additional userdefined parameters and arguments for all systems supporting PowerShell interface. Based on object information commands will be executed local or using different endpoint systems. Additional PowerShell modules can be loaded during the runtime executing a single object or a bundle of objects. Authentication modes, user and credential infomation can be added if necessary for each operation. After sending the PowerShell command result collection and error streams will be catched by the Management Agent and provided for further execution.

The Management Agent serves the following features:

  • Read/write users into SAP UM
  • Supports read/update users into SAP CUA
  • Synchronize passwords for SAP users
  • Managing user roles and composite roles
  • Support of more than 100 SAP with only one MA
  • SNC Encryption

For more information, please visit: SAP Management ECMA2

 

SharePoint MA

Oxford Computer Group's SharePoint MA makes the creation, deletion and maintenance of up-to-date SharePoint profiles significantly easier. The solution allows an organization's SharePoint user profiles to be kept up-to-date by FIM. FIM populates the SharePoint user profiles with data from any of its connected data sources, such as Active Directory, HR systems, company white pages, email Global Address Lists etc. By utilizing FIM's provisioning and deprovisioning power, an organization's SharePoint user profiles can be created and deleted in line with its business rules. That means new Starters get access to all the required and approved systems from the minute they join the company. It also means their access privileges can be changed when required and removed when they leave. This significantly reduces the possibility of data theft.

 

Unix SSH MA

OCG SSH System Management Agent is based on standard .NET library. The agent supports creation, deletion and modify of unix-based systems account objects and user profiles. Combined with OCG Password Change Notification Service (PCSN) the solution provides the ability to synchronize account passwords between active directory and the connected unix systems. The MA functionality is easily and free extensible.

For more information, please visit: Unix SSH ECMA2

 

Simple LDAP MA

The OCG Simple LDAP MA (based on Extensible Connectivity MA 2.0) allows the  import of Active Directory Partitions or Global Catalog Structures into FIM. The Management Agent has automatic AD Schema discovery. It is therefore possible, in the FIM User Interface, to select which object types and attributes are imported from AD or GC.

 

Sync Monitoring Solution MA

The OCG Sync Monitor Solution MA (based on Extensible Connectivity MA 2.0) generates Metaverse data which make the monitoring and troubleshooting of Sync issues straightforward. For example, the MA generates a multi-value list for each object in the Metaverse, showing which Management Agents are connected to this Metaverse object. Similarly, errors in synchronization or export also result in Metaverse Objects which are related to the object which experienced the error – this increases the visibility of the error message, and makes troubleshooting more straightforward.

Other

OCG has many other Management Agents that are available as part of a service engagement, and is developing new ones all the time - for example Google MA, File Share MA, Unix, Oracle RBAC, various Telephone systems, Sharepoint, Office365, Exchange 2010 Resources, custom LDAP MA, GPO Link MA, AD DACL - please contact us!
