Description:

The FIM CS Synchronization Rule Viewer is a script to display and document your FIM synchronization rules:

  • Display – because the script has a UI to render your configuration
  • Document – because you can copy a displayed configuration to the clipboard and save it to a file.

The script is based on the HTA (HTML Application) framework – a framework that enables you to develop scripts that look like Windows applications without the need of writing code in Visual Studio.

Important: To run the script, you need a FIM server with PowerShell installed.

If you have installed PowerShell on your FIM server, make sure that it is configured to allow running scripts. The command to verify this is "get-executionpolicy". To enable all Windows PowerShell scripts to run, use the following command: "set-executionpolicy unrestricted". Please see the PowerShell documentation for more details.

When running the script, you need to provide the Distinguished Name of the synchronization rule you want to display. To retrieve the attribute value, use the connector space search:

You can then copy the Distinguished Name from the Connector Space Object Properties dialog:

To display the synchronization rule, click Display:

Get the script/tool from here.

REMARK: Markus also created a "FIM CS Synchronization Rule Viewer Plus" for which it is not needed to determine the DN of the synchronization rule. You just select the synchronization rule from the GUI. For more info about that, check out this.

Cheers,
Jorge
