Step 7: Configure Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 Reporting Extensibility

Configuring Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 to demonstrate reporting extensibility consists of the following:

  • Copy the ReportingExt folder to FIM1

  • Extend the FIM Schema

  • Verify the FIM Schema Additions

  • Run the Import-FIMReportingReport PowerShell Cmdlet

  • Run the Data Warehouse Management Pack Synchronization Job

  • Verify the Management Packs and Group Extension Test Report has been deployed to SCSM

  • Update Group management: Group administrators can update group resources MPR

  • Update theDC for editing Groups in the FIM Portal

  • Edit the Entitlements and Tier attributes of our Test Security Group

  • Run Start-FIMReportingInitialSync PowerShell Cmdlet

  • Run Start-FIMReportingIncrementalSync PowerShell Cmdlet

  • Run the ETLScript PowerShell Script

Copy the ReportingExt folder to FIM1

First we will copy the ReportingExt folder to FIM1. This folder is included in the documentation download from Connect.

To Copy the ReportingExt folder to FIM1

  1. Log on to FIM1 as CORP\Administrator.

  2. Copy the entire ReportingExt folder to C:\

  3. ReportingExt folder
    ImportantImportant
    We need to ensure that all of the files are in C:\ReportingExt because some of the scripts use absolute paths.

Extend the FIM Schema

Next we are going to extend the FIM Schema with two changes to our Group object. These changes will be adding a Tier and Entitlement attribute.

To extend the FIM Schema

  1. Click Start, select All Programs, select Accessories, Select Windows PowerShell and click on Windows PowerShell. This will open Windows PowerShell

  2. On the command line type the following and hit return Set-ExecutionPolicy unrestricted. This will bring up a message about the execution policy. Click Y.

  3. On the command line type the following and hit return C:\ReportingExt\import-testschema. This will import several changes. Once this is finished move on to the next section but don’t close PowerShell as it will be used in the next section.

    import-testschema

Verify the FIM Schema Additions

Now we will verify that the new Entitlements and Tier attributes are in FIM

To Verify the FIM Schema Additions

  1. Log on to FIM1.corp.contoso.com as CORP\Administrator.

  2. In Internet Explorer, in the address bar at the top, enter https://fim1/identitymanagement and hit enter. This should bring up the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 page.

  3. On the right, under Administration, click Schema Management. This will bring up the Schema Management.

  4. At the top, click All Attributes. This will bring up All Attributes.

  5. Scroll to page 3 and verify Entitlements is there.

    Verify Entitlement

  6. Scroll to page 9 and verify Tier is there.

Run the Import-FIMReportingSchemaDefinition PowerShell Cmdlet

Now that we have new objects in the FIM Schema we must associate those objects with the SCSM data warehouse. Using the Import-FIMReportingSchemaDefinition PowerShell cmdlet will accomplish this.

To Run the Import- FIMReportingSchemaDefinition PowerShell Cmdlet

  1. Navigate to the C:\ReportingExt folder. In the folder, double-click on FIMReportingSchemaDefinitioncommand.txt. This will open a text file.

    WarningWarning
    Ensure that Add-PSSnapIn FimReportingAdministration runs successfully before running Import-FimReportingSchemaDefinition. If you copy all of the contents of the FIMReportingSchemaDefinitioncommand.txt file into the powershell window, it should run automatically.

  2. Copy the contents of the text file and paste it into our Windows PowerShell window. Hit enter. This will take a moment as the files are imported.

    Import-FIMReportingSchemaDefinition
  3. Once this is finished move on to the next section but don’t close PowerShell as it will be used in the next section.

Run the Import-FIMReportDefinition PowerShell Cmdlet

Now that we have associated these objects with the SCSM data warehouse, we will import our report binding.

To Run the Import- FIMReportDefinition PowerShell Cmdlet

  1. Navigate to the C:\ReportingExt folder. In the folder, double-click on FIMReportDefinitioncommand.txt. This will open a text file.

  2. Copy the contents of the text file and paste it into our Windows PowerShell window. Hit enter. This will take a moment as the files are imported.

    Import-FIMReportDefinition
  3. Once this is finished move on to the next section but don’t close PowerShell as it will be used in the next section.

Run the Data Warehouse Management Pack Synchronization Job

Now we will run the SCSM Data Warehouse Management Pack Synchronization Job. This job instructs the Data Warehouse to look for any new Management Packs that have been added, create any new schema, and deploy any reports defined within them.

To run the Data Warehouse Management Pack Synchronization Job

  1. On the command line type the following and hit return Add-PSSnapIn SMCmdletSnapIn. This will load the SCSM PowerShell Cmdlets into your current PowerShell session.

  2. On the command line type the following and hit return Start-SCDWJob –JobName MPSyncJob –ComputerName APP3. This will begin the synchronization job. This may take up to 5 minutes to complete.

  3. Now check the status of the MPSyncJob. On the command line type the following and hit return Get-SCDWJob –JobName MPSyncJob –ComputerName APP3. This will return information about the job. Note the Status.

    Get MPSync

  4. You need to wait until this job completes before moving to the next part. If the status says running check it again in a minute or so. Once the status says Not Started move on to the next part.

Verify the Management Packs and Group Extension Test Report has been deployed to SCSM

Now we will verify that the new management pack and report have been successfully deployed in SCSM.

Verify the Management Packs and Group Extension Test Report has been deployed to SCSM

  1. Click Start, select All Programs, select Microsoft System Center and select Service Manager Console. This will launch the Service Manager Console. This may take a moment.

  2. It may take a moment for the Data Warehouse and Reporting nodes to populate.

  3. Once they have populated, at the bottom of the console, click the Data Warehouse node on the Wunderbar.

  4. At the top, click Management Packs. This will populate the center pane with a list of our management packs.

  5. In the center pane, at the top, in the box that says Filter, enter FIM and click the magnifying glass.

  6. Verify that the following management packs appear:

    • FIM Data Warehouse Extensibility Test Library – Schema MP

    • FIM Group Extension Test Report Library – Report MP and Definition.

    Data Warehouse node

  7. At the bottom of the console, click the Reporting node on the Wunderbar.

  8. Reporting should appear at the top, on the left. Click Forefront Identity Manager Reporting. This will populate reports in the center.

  9. Verify that the following report appears:

    • Group Extension Test Report

    Group Extension Test Report

    WarningWarning
    If the management packs or reports do not appear at all, or are not in a complete deployment state, attempt to run the MPSyncJob again from PowerShell, or use the Restart Deployment link to the right of the Management Pack in the Tasks pane in the Data Warehouse > Management Packs node. You may need to refresh the view or close and re-open the console to see the reports appearing.

    WarningWarning
    You may also wish to view the FIM Schema Binding File that was imported into FIM as part of the import process. You may do so by navigating to the Administration > All Resources node in the FIM Portal, and inspecting the Data Warehouse Binding schema elements that exist in the system. In this example, you should see a new schema binding called Test Extensibility.
