MIM 2016: Updating Users Profiles RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'll probably get flamed for asking such a stupid question, but I'm honestly stuck on this. All I can say in my defense is that I didn't know anything about Identity Manager a week ago!

    OK so I've got everything installed, Sync, Portal and Service. Created MAs for MIM (FIM) and AD DS, and user information is flowing into MIM perfectly.

    Now I'm trying to set the portal so users can update their own information, but the only way I can get this to work is by adding an attribute flow into the AD DS MA, and there's not a single guide I can find which says you need to do this. So I think that must be wrong.

    I've created an Outbound Sync Rule, MPR and Workflow. In the Outbound Sync Rule I've added the attributes I want users to be able to update. But this doesn't work either. When I run a Full Import and Sync on the MA it still just shows Inbound Synchronization for the statistics.

    I've not enabled provisioning, as I'm not really ready to start creating users with the portal just yet. Nor have I enabled "Create resource in external system" for the Outbound Rule as I'm presuming I'm only updating.

    Any help very much appreciated :)

  • 40 minutes later and I've fixed it!

    The MPR wasn't being applied because the user was already in the set being used by the Workflow. Simple! Ticking the box to apply to existing users in the set and then disabling enabling the MPR brought everything into life.

    Slowly getting my head round this  :)

    Happy Days!
