Step 9: Create a FIM metaverse rules extension

 

Updated: January 15, 2013

Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager

The test lab guide scenarios make use of a Forefront Identity Manager 2010 (FIM) metaverse rules extension dynamic-link library (DLL) that supplements the management agents that act as the primary interface between the connected data systems and the FIM metaverse. Synchronization Service Manager generates the necessary Visual Studio project files to create the DLL file, and you supply the program code that is compiled into the DLL. Sample code is provided for you in the following procedure.

To create a FIM metaverse rules extension

  1. Log on to FIM1 as CORP\Administrator.

  2. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager, and then click Synchronization Service.

  3. In Synchronization Service Manager, on the Tools menu, click Options.

  4. In the Options dialog box, select the Enable metaverse rules extension and Enable Provitioning Rules Extension check boxes.

  5. In Rules extension name, type MVExtension.dll, and then click Create Rules Extension Project.

  6. In the Create Extension Project dialog box, select the Launch in VS.NET IDE check box, and then click OK. Visual Studio 2012 will launch.

  7. In the Review Project And Solution Changes dialog box, click OK. Internet Explorer will appear displaying information about the project conversion. Close Internet Explorer.

  8. In Visual Studio, double-click MVExtension.vb.

  9. On the EDIT menu, click Select All, and then on the EDIT menu, click Delete.

  10. In the code window, type the following:
