Alex’s Vlog Entry: Creating an Extensible Management Agent for SharePoint Info Path RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I believe that extensibility of ILM is one of its strongest features, when coupled with .NET framework as its foundation, it allows us meet the challenges of even the most complex heterogeneous environments.

    This vlog entry provides exposure to the process of building from scratch an extensible management agent.
    Specifically we will take a look at creating a management agent for SharePoint document library, which contains InfoPath forms.
    The idea behind this connector is to provide a framework for merging workflow capabilities built-in into InfoPath with the provisioning powers of ILM.
    More importantly, this vlog entry is aimed at providing developers and/or administrators with the knowledge around creation of additional connectors for ILM.
