Schedule request RRS feed

  • Question

  • My customer wants to have changes in FIM Portal to be scheduled at a specific date (and time). Is there a possiblity in FIM 2010 R2 Portal to schedule a request? Let's take user modification as example. The customer wants to have an input field on the user modification RCDC with something like "Modification Date" where he/she can enter a date. After submitting the request, the user modification must not be done until the date from "Modification Date" parameter is reached.

    Can I create a custom workflow activity and keep it on-hold until the date is reached (like during the approval phase in the built-in approval activity)?

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

  • You could probably achieve this through a custom resource type and a Set transition which calls a workflow. The workflow would set the field value on the target resource as the resource enters the Set.

    You may run into problems where multiple values are pushed to the target resource at the same time or random times in the future... You'd probably need to build an authorization workflow to check for other custom resources that will transition into the Set in the future before you create duplicates/multiples.
