Configuring the Lithnet REST API for the FIM/MIM Service post MIM Version 4.4.x.x

Last year I wrote this post on installing and configuring the Lithnet REST API for the FIM/MIM Service and integrating it with Azure API Management.

This week on a fresh installation of Microsoft Identity Manager with SP1 I was installing the Lithnet REST API for the FIM/MIM Service and was getting errors from the WCF Web Service finding the correct version of the Microsoft.ResourceManagement.dll.

After a little troubleshooting and no progress I recalled Kent Nordström posting the following tweet last month.… [Keep reading] “Configuring the Lithnet REST API for the FIM/MIM Service post MIM Version 4.4.x.x”

Error: Failed to connect to the specified database when creating a Microsoft Identity Manager Service MA

Last week I was installing Microsoft Identity Manager into a development environment. The install was using Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 with SP1 and was version 4.5.285.0. The install had gone well, SQL, Synchronisation Server, MIM Service and Portal etc. I had even created a couple of Management Agents. However when it came time to create the Microsoft Identity Manager Service MA, the Synchronisation Server returned the error “Failed to connect to the specified database”.

Jumping over to the Event Log I found the error below.… [Keep reading] “Error: Failed to connect to the specified database when creating a Microsoft Identity Manager Service MA”

Error 25009 HResult 0x80131700 when installing Microsoft Identity Manager

This week I was installing Microsoft Identity Manager in a new environment and wasn’t using my usual scripts that semi automate the process. During the installation of the Microsoft Identity Manager Synchronization Service I got the Error 25009 HResult 0x80131700 as shown below.

As mentioned above I normally do this semi-automated but this time I was updating a bunch of that so was starting with a fresh install on a Windows Server 2016 host.

Note: Windows Server 2019 isn’t an officially supported platform currently.… [Keep reading] “Error 25009 HResult 0x80131700 when installing Microsoft Identity Manager”

SailPoint IdentityNow Governance Groups Management Agent for Microsoft Identity Manager

Last week I posted a SailPoint IdentityNow Roles Management Agent for Microsoft Identity Manager. Today I’m posting a sister for it, an IdentityNow Governance Groups Management Agent.

I’ve posted about Governance Groups before. See Managing SailPoint IdentityNow Governance Groups via the API with PowerShell. That post details creating and managing Governance Groups via the API.

This Management Agent is essentially the enumeration of Governance Groups in IdentityNow via API wrapped up in a PowerShell Management Agent.… [Keep reading] “SailPoint IdentityNow Governance Groups Management Agent for Microsoft Identity Manager”

SailPoint IdentityNow Roles Management Agent for Microsoft Identity Manager

This is the first post in a series where I will provide a number of base-level Management Agents for Microsoft Identity Manager to integrate with SailPoint IdentityNow. Whilst the two products have areas of competing/equivalent functionality there are other aspects where integration of the two compliment each other. Whilst that is not the purpose of this post, through the series of upcoming posts it will be relatively easy to extrapolate how the two products can happy co-exist and orchestrate each other for certain functions.… [Keep reading] “SailPoint IdentityNow Roles Management Agent for Microsoft Identity Manager”

Using Invoke-WebRequest calls within a Granfeldt PowerShell MA for Microsoft Identity Manager

If you use PowerShell extensively you should be familiar with the Invoke-RestMethod cmdlet and the ability for PowerShell to call API’s and receive information. The great thing about Invoke-RestMethod is the inbuilt conversion of the results to PowerShell Objects. However there are times when you need the raw response (probably because you are trying to bend things in directions they aren’t supposed to be; story of many of my integrations).

From within Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent script(s) that use Invoke-WebRequest calls, these will in turn leverage the Internet Explorer COM API on the local machine.… [Keep reading] “Using Invoke-WebRequest calls within a Granfeldt PowerShell MA for Microsoft Identity Manager”

Adding Delta Sync Support to the Microsoft Identity Manager PowerShell Management Agent for Workday HR

Recently I posted a sample Microsoft Identity Manager Management Agent for Workday HR. Subsequently I also posted about some updates I made to the WorkdayAPI PowerShell Module to enable functionality to specify the time period to return changes for. This post details updating  my sample Workday Management Agent to support Delta Synchronisation.

WorkdayAPI PowerShell Module

First up you will need the updated WorkdayAPI PowerShell Module that provides the Get-WorkdayWorkerAdv cmdlet and can take a time period to return information for.… [Keep reading] “Adding Delta Sync Support to the Microsoft Identity Manager PowerShell Management Agent for Workday HR”

Updated: Azure AD B2B Guest Invitations Microsoft Identity Manager Management Agent

In August I posted this that detailed Automating Azure AD B2B Guest Invitations using Microsoft Identity Manager. More recently Microsoft updated the Microsoft Graph to include additional information about Azure AD B2B Guest users and I wrote this that creates HTML Reports based off these new attributes.

That information is also handy when managing the lifecyle of Azure AD B2B Users. As we do that using Microsoft Identity Manager I’ve updated my Azure AD B2B Guest Invitation Management Agent for these attributes so they can be used in the lifecycle logic.… [Keep reading] “Updated: Azure AD B2B Guest Invitations Microsoft Identity Manager Management Agent”

Building a Microsoft Identity Manager PowerShell Management Agent for Workday HR

Before I even get started with this post, let me state that the integration I describe here is not a standalone solution. Integrating with Workday for any organisation of significant size will require multiple integration points each providing coverage for the scenarios for your implementation. I list a few in this post, but Alexander Filipin has already done an awesome job here.

You may state, that there is of course the Azure Active Directory Provisioning Service for Workday.… [Keep reading] “Building a Microsoft Identity Manager PowerShell Management Agent for Workday HR”

Automate the Generation of a Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent Schema Definition File

Generating Schema.ps1 for the Granfeldt FIM/MIM PowerShell Management Agent

Getting started writing your first Forefront/Microsoft Identity Manager Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent can be a bit daunting. Before you can do pretty much anything you need to define the schema for the PSMA. Likewise if you have written many, the generation of the schema file often seems to take longer than it should and can be a little tedious when all you want to do is write the logic for the Import and Export scripts.… [Keep reading] “Automate the Generation of a Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent Schema Definition File”
