  • General discussion

  • The MIMWAL is a Workflow Activity Library (WAL) for building complex workflows in the Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) 2016 and Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 R2 solution.

    The WAL is a powerful solution accelerator for MIM / FIM that provides foundational activities which can be combined to create complex workflows to implement business processes within a MIM / FIM solution simply by configuration instead of coding for days and months.

    MIMWAL Features

    • Building-block Workflow Activities
    • Conditional Execution Capability for Building-block Activities
    • Support for Iteration Over a Collection of Values in Building-block Activities
    • Deep Resolution Capability for FIM Lookup Grammar
    • Rich Library of Workflow Functions
    • UI Framework for Building Additional Custom Workflow Activities
    • Support for ETW Event Tracing
    • Optimization of Update Requests
      • Combining multiple updates into a single request per resource per activity
      • Issuing update request only when resource is actually modified.

  • Fantastic! I guess it will be possible to contribute with new features and bug fixes.

    Will there be any releases? Or will you have to build the code yourself?

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

  • Leo,

    Yes, it is most definitely an opportunity to contribute ideas, bug fixes,  documentation to the MIMWAL project.  We outline that process here:

    As far as a Release,  you can expect uncompiled code releases, and not compiled releases at this time.   We are hoping to provide a walk through of how to get the code, compile the code, and deploy it on your own to aid those who may not be as familiar with visual studio. 

    If you can provide some items you think would help in the MIMWAL TechNet group we look forward to seeing how we can utilize it.
