Management Agents in FIM 2010

Updated: April 5, 2010

Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager 2010

Management agents link specific connected data sources to Microsoft® Forefront® Identity Manager (FIM) 2010. A management agent is responsible for moving data from a connected data source to FIM. When data in FIM is modified, the management agent can also export the data out to the connected data source to keep the connected data source synchronized with the data in FIM. Generally, there is at least one management agent for each connected directory.

Management Agent Terminology

Call-based management agent
Any management agent that uses an API function call to a data source to import or export data.

File-based management agent
Any management agent that uses a text file to import data from and export data to a connected data source.
