How to use FIM web service endpoint using JAVA. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am evaluating FIM 2012 R2 and trying to connect the FIM using Java through Web Service exposed by FIM(as per FIM documentation). I searched for WSDL of the FIM webService, however no luck on that. Please someone help me in these issue:

    FIM WebService WSDL location?

  • Hi,

    Update on above issue.

    I am able to get FIM related WSDLs and XSDs using SVCUtil.exe tool provided by Windows SDK.

    With the help of this WSDLs and XSDs(after minor modification) I am able to generate Java web service client using CFX 2.5.1. This generates on Service pointing to WSDL location "http://localhost:5725/ResourceManagementService/Alternate?wsdl" which was not present in downloaded WSDLs from SVCUtil.exe tool. So I provided location of downloaded WSDL file.

    However I am still unable to call FIM web service endpoint as it gives me error:

    The endpoint could not dispatch the request.

    When I call "" generated using downloaded WSDLs.

    How can I check wheather my FIM setup is correct or not in respect to Web services deployment?

    From where I can get Alternate WSDL?

    Last but not least, how to FIM web service using  Java?

  • I'm also looking into this and running into some issues and would love to know where the WSDL is at.

  • My advice to customers that want to interact with FIM from a non-.NET context is to write a thin wrapper in C#/VB using the CodePlex FIM Client that exposes a traditional WSDL so you can easily call it from Java.

    Thanks, Brian
