FIM Portal customization for groups creation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Actually in our project we are creating groups in AD using FIM portal. But now on our client requirement we want to customize the group creation with the amendments in Display Name of the group like above, where MG- should appear as prefix while giving display Name for distribution groups. And in the similar way for " SP-" for creating security groups.

  • You can handle this in a Workflow triggered when the group is created.

    If the name starts with "MG-", then do nothing. Else add "MG-" to the Display Name.

    It's not possible to add MG- or SG- as a prefix in the GUI (without customizing it in a non-supported manner).

    Did my post help? Please use "Vote As Helpful", "Mark as answer" or "Propose as answer". Thank you!

  • In FIM/MIM WAL, you  can create policies, set and workflows.

    1)create a set - create a set that has all the groups

    2)create a workflow - Action - update resource

    Target is  [Target/DisplayName]

    Value Expression is "MG-" +[Target/DisplayName]

    3) create a policy using the above set (transition in) and workflow.

    policy something like - _Change the name of the group

    So whenever you create a new group, the group falls in the above set and this workflow is called.

  • Hello,

    Actually the requirement here is to customize the RCDC for group creation in which display name textbox needs to have a prefix (MG-) for distribution group and (SP-) for security group (as shown in screen shot appearing in  this blog).

    Can you please help in customizing the RCDC accordingly.

  • There is one RCDC for all DLs and SGs, because there is only one RCDC per Resource allowed. But there might be a way, as described here.
