  • Hi,

    There is plenty of Microsoft Documentation that defines all of this.  Here is a good starting point:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-identity-manager/microsoft-identity-manager-2016

    In summary;

    A set is a container (like a group or OU) that is typically used to trigger an MPR when an object transitions into or out of the set

    A Management Policy Rule (MPR) is used to define what can be done (permission granting) in a Request by specific groups of requestors against a particular type of object, e.g. MIM Operators can create user accounts or an MPR can be used to trigger a workflow when an object transitions into a Set

    A workflow is a pre-defined set of activities that can be configured, e.g. to call a sync rule when a user is created and transitions into a set which triggers the associated MPR.  They can also be configured to send emails, etc etc.  Have a look here to see examples of what the MIM Workflow Activity Library (MIMWAL) holds:

    Hope that helps
