FIM Management Agent Development
Microsoft FIM 2010 features a powerful Extensibile Connectivity Management Agent (ECMA) framework which allows the development of custom connectors for the FIM Synchronization Service.
This capability enables you to communicate with systems not covered by the out-of-the-box connectors, and to go beyond the functionality offered by the built-in generic SQL and Web Service connectors. This includes in-house and third party HR systems, sales systems, cloud-based applications, or any other system where identities and access need to be managed.
Using the new ECMA 2.0 Framework, which was released in 2012 with FIM 2010 R2, Identity Specialists can craft highly functional, highly efficient Management Agents to integrate with your organisation’s applications.
Custom FIM Management Agents from Identity Specialists:
- Are built on an existing Management Agent template that facilitates rapid connector development.
- Allow for a high level of configuration customisation to ensure portability between environments.
- Provide delta operations (where possible) to reduce end-to-end processing time.
- Create the ability to import and export data to any system which allows external communication, whether it’s off the shelf or in-house.
