  • I have done this with a custom MA and workflow activity a number of times. There is nothing out of the box that will automate this for you unless the photos are stored in a database or directory that FIM has an MA for already.

  • You may be able to use the MA that I've published for this - http://blog.goverco.com/2011/12/loading-picture-to-ad-via-fim.html

  • Thanks for helping Soren, but am a lay man when comes to do customization

    can you please walk me through step-by-step files required to import MA and other related steps

    And yes would like to mention that am using FIM2010 R2 version , can we use your code in it?

  • For initial load or even later loads if these are not being done by users on their own I used simple script to bulk upload the data. In addition I've used workflow with some custom activities to validate and modify size and dimensions on the photo

  • Since photos are in different source ,customer is not willing to have customized agents, Can this be achieved using SQL,

  • There is no installation guide for the MA and to write up a complete guide would be a huge task; you should be able to find some guides on using ExMA's on MSDN and maybe take from there. The MA comes with sourcecode and I've used this on numerous R2 installations as well.

    Hope you manage to get it up and running...
