XPATH "Filter" attribute via EXPORT Flows RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have provisioned a Criteria based group from the FIM provisioning process.

    Is it possible to populate a Criteria based group with Filter attribute /Person[orunit=345234]. All I am trying to do is set the criteria via the provisoing process of Groups.

    How do I set the criteria ?

    Can I do the following ?

    mventry["filter"].value = "/Person[Orgunit=234123]";

    Its has not worked but can you guide me how to do something like this ?

  • I think I got the answer for the above

    I form an XML formatted string.

    <Filter xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org..................>/Person[org=......</Filter>

    How do I set the Owner and displayOwner attributes ?

    via using Extension rules ?

  • It sounds like you are looking to sync AD group data into the FIM Portal.  Is that correct?  We typically see the referenced AD attribute "managedBy" import attribute flow to a MV attribute, then from that MV attribute an export attribute flow (in the FIM MA), out to Owner and Displayed Owner. Emphasis on the attribute being a referenced date type.

    You may find the TechNet article How Do I Synchronize Groups from AD DS to FIM helpful. Towards the end of the article there is mention of a few different approaches to handling owner and display owner. A strait attribute flow would be the easiest to implement if you have that data already populated out in your AD.  Hope that helps.
