  • Is there a way to project manually created AD accounts, in a specific OU, into the Metaverse?

    Thank you,

  • Of course.  Are you doing it Classical Rules or Codeless provisioning/synchronization?

  • I would prefer Classical Rules.

  • If you want to project all users from AD, who are not in FIM, then it is a couple click in AD MA.

    follow this.

    To configure join and projection rules

        • Double Click AD MA

        • Click Join and Projection Tab

        • Click New projection rule.

    1. In the Projection dialog box, in Type, do one of the following:
    • To declare the metaverse object type, click Declared. In Metaverse object type, confirm that the correct metaverse object type is highlighted.
  • To use a rules extension, click rules extension.
    1. To add the projection rule, click OK.
    2. To add additional projection rules, repeat steps 1 through 3, and then click OK

    If you want only certain users to be projected, let;s say only users in OU="USERS", then you need to write a piece of code like this.  (Visual Basic, Csharp is similar)

    Public Function ShouldProjectToMV(ByVal csentry As CSEntry, _
    ByRef MVObjectType As String) As Boolean Implements _
       Select Case csentry.dn.toString.Value.ToLower.Contains("users") (Not sure on the exact syntax of this line)
             MVObjectType = "person"
    End Function

    Please test the code.
