The FIM Attribute Flow Precedence Viewer is a script to display and document your metaverse attribute population:

  • Display – because the script has a UI to render your configuration
  • Document – because you can copy a displayed configuration to the clipboard and save it to a file.

The script is based on the HTA (HTML Application) framework – a framework that enables you to develop scripts that look like Windows applications without the need of writing code in Visual Studio.

When running the script, you need to retrieve data from your FIM server, first. To retrieve data, click Get Data:

This script is a PowerShell script that is embedded into an HTA.

After you have downloaded the Zip file to your computer, you should unblock it.
To unblock the file, right-click it, select Properties, and then click Unblock.
