  • I recommend that you start with Technet and MSDN

    You need a compiler to compile your extensions. You probably need an IDE also. I recommend that you use Visual Studio to develop and compile your code (let it be C# or VB).

  • Thanks. I have VS 2008 installed, just need to know which file i need to open and how to compile/save it.

  • Without seeing your project or knowing whether it is C# or VB I'd say open the solution file (.sln) or project file (.csproj). The actual file you need to edit is .cs or .vb.

  • I know how to open the project file and modify it...what i don't know is how to save/compile it after the changes.  because it takes more than just click "save"...right?

  • I you have successfully opened the project in Visual Studio, you can right click on the solution and select 'Rebuild Solution' or press F6.

    This will generate the assembly in the Debug or Release folder from the project's \bin directory.

    If there is no post job that copies the dll to the FIM Extensions folder you will need to copy the dll manually, after you have updated the extension you can run a preview in FIM Sync to see if your change has the desired effect.

    Need realtime FIM synchronization and advanced reporting? check out the new that supports FIM 2010, Omada Identity Manager, SQL, File, AD or Powershell real time synchronization!
