Clearing an attribute when MA Object gets disconnected RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to clear an attribute in the metaverse when objects in a certain MA get disconnected.  

    Basically, we have some users with managed information for assets, specifically mobile phones.  I am importing these managed assets into FIM as its own delimited text MA as the type asset.  This import also includes the user name that can be joined with the AD user name, the mobile number for the flow import and a flag indicating it is published or not.   When this asset MA object gets joined with an AD MA object because the flag for published is set, it will update the AD user properly with the correct mobile phone.   When the asset MA objects gets disconnected either manually or by filter where the flag says it is unpublished, it does not remove the mobile phone.   I think this is as designed as there are other MA's that also import and export the mobile attribute.   What I would like to do is override this functionality for this one asset MA so that when this asset MA object gets disconnected, it will clear the mobile phone attribute for the next export to all the other MA's.

    I have tried to setup a Rules extension to run if the objects in the asset MA get disconnected but it would seem that the deprovision rule is never run.  It also seems that you can't update the metaverse objects when the deprovision rule is run either.  I am not sure what the best way to do this is.  Anybody have any suggestions?

  • you need to set the precedence for the specific attributes to 1 for this MA. This MA needs to have the highest precedence level, own it.
