Registry Keys and Configuration File Settings in FIM 2010

Updated: August 17, 2010

Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager 2010

Registry and Configuration Settings for FIM 2010

What this document covers

This document provides the registry settings and configuration file options for the Microsoft® Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 R2 Service, the FIM Portal, and Forefront Identity Manager Certificate Management (FIM CM).

For an overview of FIM 2010 documentation and guidance for using it, see the Documentation Roadmap.

If you have questions regarding the content of this document or if you have general feedback, post a message to the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 TechNet Forum (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=163230).

Audience

This document is intended for information technology (IT) planners and systems administrators.

Group Policy settings

Add-ins and extensions

The values in Table 1 are located in the registry key: SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Add-ins.

Table 1

Registry value name Value type Class Display name Notes

MonitoredAccountName

<string>

User

Configure FIM Service mailbox address

With this policy setting, you can specify the mailbox address of the FIM Service service account that processes incoming requests sent by the FIM Add-in for Outlook®.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the mailbox address specified during the setup is used.

ValidApprovalRequestSenders

<string>

User

Configure valid senders of approval requests

With this policy setting, you can specify the mailbox addresses of valid service accounts which can send approval requests that are being accepted by the FIM Add-in for Outlook. You need to configure this policy setting if you change the FIM Service service account, for example, by using the policy setting “Configure FIM Service mailbox address.” This policy setting should contain both the new and old mailbox addresses to ensure that all previously sent approval e-mail messages are still treated as valid. You can specify several mailbox addresses by separating them with semicolon.

If you do not configure this policy setting, only the mailbox address in “Configure FIM Service mailbox address” is used.

ShowGroupManagementUi

<dword>

User

Configure group management in the user interface (UI)

With this policy setting, you can specify whether the FIM Add-in for Outlook should show the group management options in the Outlook ribbon.

The options for this value are:

  • 0 – Disable Group management UI

  • 1 – Enable Group management UI

If you do not configure this policy setting, the group management options in the Outlook ribbon are displayed.

PortalUrl

<string>

User

Configure FIM Portal address

With this policy setting, you can specify the URL for the FIM Portal used in the FIM Add-in for Outlook when the user selects Group Management Website.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the URL specified during the setup is used.

AllGroupsAddressBookName

<string>

User

Configure the address book containing valid groups

With this policy setting, you can specify the address book used by the FIM Add-in for Outlook when the user selects groups to add members to.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the address book All Groups is used.

AllMembersAddressBookName

<string>

User

Configure the address book containing valid members

With this policy setting, you can specify the address book used by the FIM Add-in for Outlook when the user selects members to add to groups.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the address book Global Address Book is used.

DeleteApprovalRequest

<dword>

User

Configure Approval Request deletion

With this policy setting, you can specify whether the FIM Add-in for Outlook should delete the Approval message when the user has responded.

The options for this value are:

  • 0 – Do not delete

  • 1 – Delete

If you do not configure this policy setting, the user can configure this setting in the FIM Add-in for Outlook. The default is to delete the e-mail.

CacheInterval

<dword>

User

Configure cache duration for password reset registration

With this policy setting, you can configure how often the password reset registration status is checked for a user at logon.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the password reset registration status is checked every time the user logs on.

MaxOffset

<dword>

User

Configure max random offset for password reset registration

With this policy setting, you can configure the offset for the policy setting “Configure cache duration for password reset registration” to prevent all password reset registration checks for all users from occurring during the same day.

If you do not configure this policy setting but have configured “Configure cache duration for password reset registration,” then password reset registration checks for all users will occur at the next logon after the duration has been reached.

If you do not configure this policy setting and have not configured “Configure cache duration for password reset registration,” then password reset registration checks happen at every logon for all users.

Configuration file settings

This section describes the two configuration files used by the FIM Service and the FIM Portal.

  • C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\web.config

  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Service\Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe.config

The FIM Service and Portal share the same overall format of the configuration files. The main difference is that the client reads from the ResourceManagementClient section and the server reads from the ResourceManagementService section. Either section can appear in both the service and portal configuration files, but the way they are used is different.

The FIM Portal discards the ResourceManagementService section altogether and uses the ResourceManagementClient section for configuring the client to communicate with the service. The service uses the ResourceManagementService section as expected, but also uses the ResourceManagementClient section to configure how workflow activities, the mail listener, and other components within the service communicate with the Web service endpoints.

FIM Service and FIM Portal

If the base address is the string literal “localhost,” this also emits the health event http://sharepoint/sites/imtmanage/Lists/Ilm%20Events/DispForm.aspx?ID=43 to indicate to operators that the base address, in its current configuration, prevents external clients from communicating with the service.
