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”
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”
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”
Update 29 August 2019 See this post for multi-threading Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent Imports (with Workday as an example).
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.… [Keep reading] “Building a Microsoft Identity Manager PowerShell Management Agent for Workday HR”
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”
Update: Oct 30 '18 Also see this post that adds support for Microsoft's updates to the Microsoft Graph to include additional information about Azure AD B2B Guest users.
Earlier this year Microsoft released the Microsoft Identity Manager Azure AD B2B Management Agent. I wrote about using it to write to Azure AD in this post here. As detailed in that post my goal was to write to Azure AD using the MA. I provided an incomplete example of doing that for Guests.… [Keep reading] “Automating Azure AD B2B Guest Invitations using Microsoft Identity Manager”
This is the third and final post in my series around using your voice to query/search Microsoft Identity Manager or as I’m now calling it, the Voice Assistant for Microsoft Identity Manager.
The two previous posts in this series detail some of my steps and processes in developing and fleshing out this concept. The first post detailed the majority of the base functionality whilst the second post detailed the auditing and reporting aspects into Table Storage and Power BI.… [Keep reading] “A Voice Assistant for Microsoft Identity Manager”
Last month I wrote this post that detailed using your voice to search/query Microsoft Identity Manager. That post demonstrated a working solution (GitHub repository coming next month) but was still incomplete if it was to be used in production within an Enterprise. I hinted then that there were additional enhancements I was looking to make. One is an Auditing/Reporting aspect and that is what I cover in this post.
The one element of the solution that has visibility of each search scenario is the IoT Device.… [Keep reading] “Using your Voice to Search Microsoft Identity Manager – Part 2”
Yes, you’ve read the title correctly. Speaking to Microsoft Identity Manager. The concept behind this was born off the back of some other work I was doing with Microsoft Cognitive Services. I figured it shouldn’t be that difficult if I just break down the concept into individual elements of functionality and put together a proof of concept to validate the idea. That’s what I did and this is the first post of the solution as an overview.… [Keep reading] “Using your Voice to Search Microsoft Identity Manager – Part 1”
