Need to use ECMA 2.2 with the FIM (Lite) that was installed with SharePoint 2010. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a "contacts" list that is being updated from a 2nd SharePoint Farm -- I have an ADLDS instance that contains the users that I have "mined" from inbound SAML assertion claims (this creates gives me the ability to build fine-grained SAML based permissions using those names. I also used the SAML sts from codeplex that fixes the people picker problem that validates claims against values in the ADLDS instance.. 

    Now I'd like to be able to sync this contact list using the FIM/User Profile Sync so that all the people in the environment could be located via People Search..

    I think this would be pretty straight forward using the Extensible Connectivity 2.0/2.2 Management Agent.  But it appears that this capability is only available in FIM 2010 R2.   

    Thought? Suggestions? -

    My fallback is an event handler on the contacts list that would perform adds/updates and deletes against the  ADLDS instance.. This scenario concerns me in that there's not a convenient way to batch the transactions so the performance would be terrible.
