By tagging your Wiki article correctly, you can significantly improve the discoverability of it. In Wiki: Common Tags, you can find an overview of commonly used tags that are not product specific. It is up to your personal preferences to pick the right tags for your article.

In addition to common tags, you should also add FIM (Forefront Identity Manager) specific tags to your article. For example, at a minimum, all FIM articles should include the tag "FIM" as starting point of your FIM related tag list. The next tag level is used to define whether your article contains a technical description or a FIM related script.


If your Wiki article is about:

  • A FIM related script, your tag list should start with: FIM, FIM How To Script.
  • Development instruction for writing FIM Wiki articles, your tag list should start with FIM, FIM Article Development.
  • A technical topic that is FIM related, your tag list should start with: FIM, FIM Technical Article.
