Are Binary Attributes Supported by FIM Reporting? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can attributes marked as binary in the FIM Service (ie SID) be exported to the SCDW for Reporting?  Although multi-value non-reference attributes are called out as non-supported in this doc http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj133861(v=ws.10).aspx I don't see any mention of binary values.

    When attempting to store in the datawarehouse as a string, I get the following error during the "Initial Sync" process in FIM after the Reporting schema is extended: Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Common.InvalidSimpleObjectValueException:
    Simple object value was not the proper type.

    When attempting to store in the datawarehouse as a binary, I get the following error during the "Initial Sync" process in FIM after the Reporting schema is extended: System.InvalidOperationException:
    The given value is not a binary value.

    I image extending the FIM Service schema and storing a copy of the attribute as a different type would be the work-around here if binary types are not supported.

    Thanks!
