ECMA 2.0 Call Based Imports and Exports RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    I am working on develoving a call based ECMA for our FIM environment to communicate with our Emergency Alert Notification System. However I am having trouble finding sample code or documentation around the Call Based functionality of ECMA when using an API. I found this link but it deals with connecting to a SQL DB. Would anyone be willing to share some sample code around Call Based/API ECMAs?

  • What is the interface you are importing/exporting to?

  • It's a Json based API.

  • So are you dealing with the JSON file itself or does the API have .NET functionality?

  • Hi,

    Basically, what you have to do in your MA is to "translate" the create / modify / delete calls you receive from FIM into something understandable by your external system.

    Starting from the SQL example, you should just replace the SQL commands with a proper API call, e.g. an "INSERT INTO THINGY..." would become something like proxy.CreateThingy(...)

    What is exactly your problem?

  • I think I finally got the code figured out but I get an error when trying to create the run profiles.

    "Value of '50' is not valid for 'Value'. 'Value' should be between 'Minimum' and 'Maximum'. Parameter name: Value."

    I made a few tweaks to my code and now I can create run profiles however when I try to run them I get an error "no-start-ma".

  • Hi,

    Can you please help me understand the Json based API connector in FIM 2010.

  • Hi,

    How did you fixed this no-start ma error?

  • Hi,

    Please start a new thread for this.

    But a "no-start-ma" usually means that there is a fatal Exception in the Event Log.
