Import-FIMConfig

Import-FIMConfig

Imports changes into the target FIM Service by using Web service calls.

Syntax

Import-FIMConfig [-uri] <string> [-credential <Credential>] [-importObject <ImportObject[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Import-FIMConfig cmdlet takes in a list of ImportObject instances. Each ImportObject represents one atomic Web service call to make. Each Web service call can contain multiple attribute-level changes. As the cmdlet creates resources, the cmdlet resolves references automatically in subsequent update and create operations.

All ImportObject instances sent to Import-FIMConfig are run. You can construct ImportObject instances from custom Windows PowerShell™ scripts or Microsoft .NET code and provide them to Import-FIMConfig for processing.

For more information about ImportObject instances and about the Microsoft® Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 Windows PowerShell cmdlet set, see Forefront Identity Manager Configuration with Windows PowerShell.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

Command prompt:
 
          $UndoneImports = $imports | Import-FIMConfig -uri http://localhost:5725/ResourceManagementService 
          $undoneImports | ConvertFrom-FIMResource –file undone.xml 
        

This is a simple example of importing.

Note that this example stores the return value to inspect that all changes were made successfully.

This is an example of an ImportObject that creates a ManagementPolicyRule resource with the references to Set resources that have not been created yet.

Note that you would include the ImportObjects inside a file and load them by using ConvertTo-FIMResource. This is an example on how to script batch operations in FIM.
