(2017-05-11) A Hotfix Rollup Package (Build 4.4.1459.0) Is Available for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 SP1

Posted by Jorge on 2017-05-11


Microsoft released a new hotfix for MIM 2016 SP1 with build 4.4.1459.0. What it fixes can be found in this blog post. For additional or detailed info see MS-KBQ4012498. If you have installed build build 4.4.1237.0 you cannot install this package. Build 4.4.1237.0 was a fresh MIM 2016 SP1 install and this hotfix enables the upgrade to SP1 without the need to uninstall first and reinstall.

Issues that are fixed or improvements that are added in this update

MIM Service

Issue 1

Authentication workflow fails with "The semaphore time out period has expired" after custom client requests AuthN token.

After you install the update, the request will complete as expected, and a clear message about a communications error is thrown into the event log.

Issue 2

Under a heavy load, there may be race condition situation when two MIM Service instances try to process the same workflow at the same time. This may cause workflow processing to fail.

After you install this update, this problem no longer occurs.

Issue 3

Set partitioning may not work if a set criteria contains a sub-condition. After you install this update, set partitioning works correctly.

Issue 4

Over time, some processing data accumulates in the MIM Service database, which may cause performance issues. This causes a problem when many Object IDs are retained in the FIM.Objects table. The SQL Server Agent job runs stored procedure FIM_DeleteExpiredSystemObjectsJob and removes expired system objects by collecting all the requests and any object references, and puts their object IDs into the ExpiredObjectKeys table.

Next, all values in the ObjectValue* tables are removed for each ID number in the ExpiredObjectKeys table. Finally, if the values in the ObjectValue* tables have indeed all been deleted, the matching row in the ExpiredObjectKeys table is also deleted. However, the object ID itself is never deleted from the fim.Objects table.

After you install the update, a new stored procedure in the debug namespace is added to clean up the database of these objects.

Stored Procedure Name: debug.DeleteObjectRemainders
Syntax: exec debug.DeleteObjectRemainders

Issue 5

After MIM SP1 clean installation, MIM Reporting or MIM Service Partitioning may not work correctly. After you install this update, both MIM Service reporting and partitioning are installed and function correctly.

Issue 6

If the FIMService database compatibility level is set to 120, SQL deadlocks may occur. After you install this update, these deadlocks no longer occur.

Improvement 1

Verbose trace logging in the MIM Service can now be enabled without forcing a restart of the service.

One new section is added to the Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe.config file to support this functionality. After you install this update, this new section is now present.

<dynamicLogging mode="true" loggingLevel="Critical" />

Logging can be set to any level between Critical and Verbose.

Two output files will be written to the installation folder for the MIM Service. It is important for the MIM Service account to have write permissions to this folder.

Folder location:

%programfiles%\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Service

Files written:

Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service_tracelog.svclog

Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service_tracelog.txt

Improvement 2

Support for System Center 2016 Service Manager and Data Warehouse is added for MIM Service Reporting.

Before this update, MIM Reporting could not install and perform with System Center 2016 Service Manager Console.

After you install this update, MIM Reporting can be installed and perform without a need to pre-install SCSM console, for any supported version of SCSM.

Synchronization Service

Issue 1

If the FIM Service management agent exports an object deletion but does not receive a confirmation of the deletion, that same object may be partly recreated in the FIMService.

After you install this update, an error will be displayed in the error list of the export run, and the recreation does not occur.

Issue 2

When the DN of an object is also the anchor, it cannot be renamed. Instead, you receive the following exception:

Unexpected-error

“The dimage has a different anchor or primary object class from what is on the hologram.”

After you install this update, the rename is processed as expected.

Issue 3

The Encryption Key Management Key (miiskmu.exe) tool may not abandon keys because of a time-out caused by a database lock.

After you install this update, the keys are processed without encountering the time-out.

Issue 4

When you run a synchronization profile step, periodic performance issues are encountered.

A fix was made to the mms_getprojected_csrefguids_noorder stored procedure to help improve performance.

Issue 5

Under certain circumstances, filter-based sync rules are applied even when they should not be.

After you install this update, the sync rule is applied only if it should be.

Issue 6

On Export for the Generic LDAP Connector, if the creation of an Audit Log file has been configured, the export run profile stops without posting a BAIL error.

After you install this update, an Export run profile step will run properly on the Generic LDAP Connector when the Audit Log File creation option is enabled.

MIM Password Reset Portal

Issue 1

When you reset a password by using the SMS authentication gate, an incorrect message is displayed to the user:

You need to click Next once you completed this call" and in next line "Call Verified:

After you install this update, the incorrect string, “Call Verified:” is removed from that dialog box.

MIM Identity Management Portal

Issue 1

Drag-and-drop users into the Remove box to delete or remove a member for group membership does not work in all circumstances.

After you install this fix, users can drag-and-drop users into the Remove box when you manage manual group memberships.

Issue 2

Local Date/Time settings being ignored for English (Australia).

After you install this update, the local date/time format settings are applied.

Issue 3

Custom controls are not initialized if we have custom event parameters in the Resource Control Display Configuration (RCDC).

After you install this fix, the custom controls are initialized as expected.

Issue 4

Error handling in the Resource Control Display Configuration is sometimes unclear.

In this update, error notifications are customized to describe the error more clearly.

Issue 5

When you use a copied link to a custom object in the Identity Management Portal, the object does not display as expected.

After you install this update, the custom object displays as expected from the copied link.

Issue 6

When you try to install the Identity Management Portal on SharePoint 2016 after you uninstall or during an update, the Portal is not installed. Additionally, you receive the following exception:

Timeout expired and error in Sharepoint log: Package name does not exist in the solution store.

Installing this update, setup will restart the SharePoint timer service to retry the failed SharePoint jobs, so setup can now complete.

Issue 7

The Approval View RCDC has incorrect symbols and displays an error.

After you install this fix, the approval view RCDC is displayed as expected, and does not throw an exception.

Issue 8

The membership buttons if custom group objects do not work correctly.

After you install this fix, the group membership buttons work as expected.

Issue 9

When you view the MIM Identity Management Portal by using the Firefox browser, object list-views, such as Users and Distribution Groups, do not display properly.

After you install this update, object list-views display as expected when you use the Firefox browser.

Issue 10

When you view the MIM Identity Management Portal by using the Internet Explorer browser, object list-views headings may not be left-aligned in the column.

After you install this update, object list-view headings display left aligned as expected.

Issue 11

When you run the MIM Portal in SharePoint 2016, the Join, Leave, Add Member, and Remove Member buttons do not work as expected on custom group object types.

After you install this update, these buttons work as expected against custom group object types.

Improvement 1

To address the fact that the default value of a Group Scope cannot be set, two optional properties were added to the UoCDropDownList and the UocRadioButtonList.

  • DefaultValue
    • This is an optional property. Use this property to define a default value for the control if the control is used to create new data

For example:

   <my:Control my:Name="My UocDropDownList" my:TypeName="UocDropDownList"
        …
         <my:Properties>
          ...
           <my:Property my:Name="DefaultValue" my:Value="MyDefault" />
  • Condition
    • Condition is optional attribute in property and it is used to specify the condition when the property is applied. The control can have several properties that use the same name but disjoint conditions
    • The syntax for condition is as follows:
      • my:Condition="[left part] [condition] [right part]
    • Notes
      • [left part] has the following options:
        • Binding Source and path
        • Simple value
      • [condition] has the following options:
        • ==
        • !=
      • [right part] has the following options:
        • Binding Source and path
        • Simple value

Example of creation different defaults for different types of group:

<my:Control my:Name="My UocDropDownList" my:TypeName="UocDropDownList"
        …
         <my:Properties>
          ...
           <my:Property my:Name="DefaultValue" my:Value=" MyDefautltForDistributionGroups" my:Condition="{Binding Source=object, Path=Type} == Distribution" />
          <my:Property my:Name="DefaultValue" my:Value=" MyDefautltForSecurityGroups " my:Condition="{Binding Source=object, Path=Type} == Security" />
-

Improvement 2

The name for all activity types that you created through Portal is authenticationGateActivity. After you install this update, all new ActivityType objects that are created, will have the following activity name values, according to type:

  • Authentication: authenticationActivity1… authenticationActivityN
  • Authorization: authorizationActivity1… authorizationActivityN
  • Action: actionActivity1… actionActivityN

Improvement 3

Requestor or Approver has no means to provide Justification upon creating the request or Approving/Rejecting pending request.

With this update, a justification field is added to the Create Request view, and new justification request/workflow data can be used. The following attributes are added [//Request/Justification] and [//WorkflowData/Reason] parameters.

Certificate Management

Issue 1

When enrolling for a virtual smart card, entering a pin with fewer than 8 characters returns a misleading error.

After you install this update, a relevant error is returned to the user.

Issue 2

When renewing a smartcard, a user can be caught in an infinite renew loop.

The following steps will cause this issue:

  1. The current smartcard profiles enter the renew window:
    • User receives an email from FIM CM Service asking him to complete a renew request
  2. User successfully executes the renew request and retrieves all certs renewed.
  3. Several hours later, user receives a second email from FIM CM Service.
    • This is not expected as the profile has already been renewed.
  4. The user will end in an infinite renew loop if he executes all the requests FIM CM Service creates.

After you install this update, only the correct requests are created, and there is no infinite loop.

Issue 3

If the Delta CRLs are disabled on a Certification Authority used by MIM Certificate Management, the exception ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND will be thrown by MIM CM.

After you install this update, no exception is thrown.

Issue 4

MIM CM does not support NonAdmin mode when you work with virtual cards. Virtual smart card could be only created by the MIM CM Client during enrollment. It is also required to have local admin rights to create a virtual smart card. So, only local admins can enroll for a new virtual smart card through MIM CM Portal.

After you install this hotfix, a new registry key will configure the MIM CM client to run in non-admin mode. Notice that the virtual smart card must be pre-created before the user can enroll their virtual smart card under the non-Admin mode settings.

To enable NonAdmin mode, change or create DWORD value NonAdmin=1 under the following registry key on a client computer:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\CLM\v1.0\SmartCardClient

Issue 5

When you use the MIM CM REST API to change the smart card status to “Disabled”, an Error 501 (NotImplemented) is returned.

After you install this update, this same code will successfully disable the smart card.

PUT …/api/v1.0/requests/{reqID}/smartcards/{smartcardID}
{
   “status” : “Disabled”
}

For more information, see the Update Smartcard Status topic on the Microsoft website.

Issue 6

MIM CM Server version 4.3.1999.0 or a later version (until current hotfix) cannot work with older version of CM Clients (FIM 2010R2 and MIM).

After you install this update, MIM CM Server will work with older MIM and FIM 2010R2 CM Clients (FIM 2010R2 Clients version 4.1.3508.0 and later versions were tested).

Issue 7

"OfflineUnblock" request could not be created by using the following call from the MIM CM REST API:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-identity-manager/reference/create-request

After you install this update, this same code will successfully submit the OfflineUnblock request.

Issue 8

There is no possibility to use smart card id as a parameter when you create a "Disable"(or any other type) request by using the following call from MIM CM REST API:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-identity-manager/reference/create-request

Only the "profile" parameter is available.

For example:

POST api/v1.0/requests
    {
        "target":"e5008CDD9E614F9BBEDC45EEEE6776F0",
        "comment":"any comment",
        "type":"Disable",
        "profiletemplateuuid":"7860DEBB-771D-464E-AAC5-2F093282CE66",
        "datacollection":[],
        "priority":"1",
        "smartcard":"49BFE09C-5590-4CC4-8A21-FB4289F4F6C8"  
     }

After you install this update, you can use the smart card id as a parameter.

Notice that the smart card id is not the same as that of the smart card serial number. Smart card id is created by the MIM CM for each active smart card.

Issue 9

MIM CM Client tracing does not log datetime. After you install this update, the date time data will be included in the client trace log.

Issue 10

Cancelling a user in the existing virtual smart cards modal dialog box can lead to an unusal and confusing error message instead of simply cancelling the operation.

After you install this update, the operation cancels the user.

Issue 11

Retire flow stops responding for TPM virtual smart cards when the NonAdmin option is set in the registry.

Issue 12

Duplicate Revocation Settings under Replace policy does not apply to a duplicated profile. After you install this update, the flow works as expected. The revocation delay is successfully copied to the duplicated profile.

Issue 13

MIM Certificate Management does not log web service exception data. After you install this update, CM now logs all web service exception data.

Improvement 1

Before this update, the only options for PIN rules in the MIM CM Modern App is MinimumPinLength.

After you install this update, the following validation settings are now available:

  • Digits
  • LowercaseLetters
  • MaxLength
  • MinLength
  • SpecialCharacters
  • UppercaseCharacters

MIM Add-in for Outlook

Issue 1

The 32-bit MIM Add-in dlls (for example, OfficeintegrationShim2010.dll) are unsigned after you apply the MIM SP1 MSP update (4.4.1302.0 build).

In this update, all files are signed as expected.

Cheers,

Jorge

(2016-11-23) Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) 2016 Service Pack 1 Packages

Posted by Jorge on 2016-11-23


Somewhere in September Microsoft released SP1 for MIM  2016 as you can read here. The first package was MIM 2016 with SP1 already included. If you wanted to install SP1 on your current deployment you had to uninstall first and reinstall with MIM 2016 with SP1 included where you would reuse all DBs. This procedure is described here. However, for some customers uninstalling everything and reinstalling it is a little bit too much. The impact and downtime is not acceptable. Because of that Microsoft has also released a SP1 update package that can be deployed on existing MIM 2016 deployments.

There is a subtle different of which you must be aware:

  • MIM 2016 with SP1: build 4.4.1237.0
  • SP1 update package: 4.4.1302.0

As you can see the builds are different! Please be aware you cannot apply the SP1 update package to a deployment already running MIM 2016 with SP1. You can only apply it when running MIM 2016 RTM.

Cheers,
Jorge

(2016-07-21) A Hotfix Rollup Package (Build 4.3.2266.0) Is Available for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016

Posted by Jorge on 2016-07-21


Microsoft released a new hotfix for MIM 2016 with build 4.3.2266.0. What it fixes can be found in this blog post. For additional or detailed info see MS-KBQ3171342

Download link

Issues that are fixed and features that are added in this update

Privileged Access Management (PAM)

Issue 1

When you create a PRIV ONLY PAM user, the PAM monitor service throws the following warning message when it tries to update the PAM users email in active directory and the value already exists:

System.Exception: Set PAM object dictionary already contain attribute ‘Email’.

FIM add-ins and extensions

Issue 1

SSPR windows clients on systems that use a high DPI setting have an incorrect scaling of the final page (the Password Reset Flow page) in which the radio buttons are overlapped.

Issue 2

SSPR windows clients have text messages that overlap after a password reset if the resulting message (success or error) contains more than three lines.

FIM Certificate Management

Issue 1

The ExecuteOperations.Disable operation from the Microsoft.Clm.BusinessLayer.Shared.dll public library does not work correctly and returns an error because of incorrect object initialization.

Issue 2

A smart card search takes 3.5 minutes on an idle server. Additionally, the search never ends if the server is stressed.

Issue 3

There is a redundant space in the "Profile Summary" string on the Request Complete page for some languages.

Issue 4

The Duplicate Revocation Settings policy is replaced because some users could not set it.

Issue 5

A certificate in the Certificate Management portal may use the LDAP CN name instead of DisplayName when it calls REST.

Issue 6

For ZH-Hans and some other languages, link underlining in the Certificate Management portal is misplaced (stroke instead of an underline) because of a font issue.

FIM Synchronization Service

Issue 1

Under certain conditions, the file selection dialog box does not appear on the MA configuration wizard pages.

Issue 2

Error messages are logged in the event log (such as Event ID 6313). Additionally, performance counters don’t work.

Issue 3

The Sync Service crashes when you run a Full Synchronization process that has Equal Precedence set for attributes that exist in IAF or EAF.

Issue 4

When an incorrect page size (either less than the minimum or more than the maximum) is used for the run profile of the ECMA2 management agent, the page size value quietly changes to the minimum or the maximum after you click Finish.

Issue 5

An error message from the Management Agent cannot be parsed if it contains some special symbols. Therefore, the error message doesn’t appear in the error list as expected, and a non-informative error window appears.

Issue 6

You receive a "Reference to undeclared entity ‘qt’" error message when you run the history process and the history text contains the "greater than" (>) symbol.

Issue 7

New Functionality: The ability to skip the Management Agent during the import of a server configuration is added. A new -Skip parameter is added to the Import-MIISServerConfig cmdlet.
The names of MAs to skip should be delimited by a semicolon (;), as in the following example:

Import-MIISServerConfig -Path "C:\exported" -Skip "FIMMA;ADMA"

Note If you do not use the -Skip parameter, the default behavior occurs.

Issue 8

A "MEMORY_ALLOCATION_FAILURE" error occurs in the Performance Monitoring tool when the performance data .dll file cannot open the process.

FIM Portal

Issue 1

Multivalued labels are displayed incorrectly in a single line in the UI.

Issue 2

When you upload Resource Control Display Configurations (RCDC), the xml-format is not verified.

Issue 3

You cannot drag-and-drop a user to the Remove box to delete the user or to remove the user from a group membership.

Issue 4

Local date and time settings are ignored for the Australian English (en-AU) locale.

Issue 5

This update enables customizations that have controls that are shown or hidden based on the state of the email-enabling check box.

An additional attribute to RCDCs configuration data is included in this update. The Now Event element may have a Parameters attribute. For Group RCDC for the OnChangeEmailEnabling event, the element should contain a comma-separated, case-sensitive list of controls to show or hide.

Example

<my:Control my:Name="EmailEnabling" my:TypeName="UocCheckBox"
 my:Caption="%SYMBOL_EmailEnablingCaption_END%"
 my:Description="%SYMBOL_EmailEnablingDescription_END%"
 my:AutoPostback="true" my:RightsLevel="{Binding Source=rights,
 Path=Email}">
        <my:Properties>
         <my:Property my:Name="Text" my:Value="%SYMBOL_EmailEnablingValue_END%"/>
        </my:Properties>
        <my:Events>

Note If the Parameters attribute is not included, the default behavior occurs.

FIM Service

Issue 1

In SharePoint Server 2013 and later versions, if you edit a workflow or update an email template by using the FIM Portal, the version is automatically updated to 4.0.0.0. This causes a system error message during processing.

BHOLD

Issue 1

When you add a user to an organizational unit (OU) that has some incompatible permissions in the OUs role, all the incompatible permissions are assigned.

Issue 2

Some issues are fixed for attribute-based authorization (ABA) roles that are assigned to a user when the roles have incompatible permissions.

Issue 3

When you use Access Management Connector to provision new OUs with a parent OU, all the parent OU roles are inherited but are also disabled.

Issue 4

An error occurs in BHOLD during installation in Internet Information Services (IIS) 10.

Issue 5

If two or more roles that are assigned to a user who has the same permissions as the roles, and the roles use the endDate attribute, you cannot extract a user permission that has the latest date.

Issue 6

An email alias is truncated if it is longer than 30 characters.

Cheers,

Jorge

Issues that are fixed or features that are added in this update

This update also fixes the following issues or adds the following features that were not previously documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

MIM add-ins and extensions

Issue 1

This hotfix addresses an issue that affects the password reset window and that occurs on monitors that have high DPI settings when the Windows display sizing of items is set to a custom size, such as 200 percent or more.

Certificate Management

Issue 1

You try to enroll a smart card by having the correct profile selected (with correct adminKey). However, the user PIN doesn’t correspond to the smart card PIN policy. In this situation, you receive the following error message:

The card cannot be accessed because the wrong PIN was presented.

Issue 2

MIM Configuration Manager Reporting doesn’t show smart card settings correctly. Settings are shown only for the Pkcs11 smartcard provider and not for baseCSP.

Issue 3

All policies in the MIM Configuration Manager allows for changes to "Revocation Settings" only for all certificates together. In this fix, a new page is added (CertificateTemplateRevocationSettings) to show "revocation settings" for the selected certificate. Changes to ProfilePolicyrevocationSettingsPage are also made to show all certificates of the profile.

MIM Synchronization Service

Issue 1

When you configure an ECMA2 run profile, you receive a “Value of ‘10’ is not a valid value” error message.

Issue 2

The Sync Engine reports a staging-error during delta import when the Generic LDAP connector detects the renaming of an object distinguished name.

Issue 3

When a rename, or a distinguishedName change, of a user is exported to Oracle Directory Enterprise Edition (ODSEE), that user is removed from group memberships. You expect that the membership reference to the renamed object will be updated, instead.

Issue 4

When unsupported characters are entered in the SMTP address, MIM Sync cannot correctly provision the object into GALSync MA. In this situation, the object fails and throws an error. This problem also causes the object to be duplicated.

Issue 5

ECMA2 Export only MA displays an "The image or delta doesn’t have an anchor" error message when you perform an Export, CS Search, or CS Deletion.

Issue 6

The Sync Service stops responding when you stop a run profile for the ECMA connector.

Issue 7

The Active Directory MA interprets objects that are restored in the directory as deleted.

Issue 8

If you call Set-MIISECMA2Configuration to set the configuration for the SharePoint connector (Microsoft.IdentityManagement.Connector.Sharepoint.dll, version 4.3.836.0), the call fails silently but the verbose output says that the operation was successful.

Issue 9

The Set-MIISADMAConfiguration cmdlet supports only a single partition and a single container. In this update, the following changes are made to the parameters of this cmdlet.

-Partitions

The -Partitions parameter allows one or more partitions to be specified in the Active Directory MA.

  • The -Partitions parameter can apply single or multiple containers by using the ";" delimiter.
  • If the -Partitions parameter is absent, the Set-MIISADMAConfiguration cmdlet behaves in the same manner as it did prior to this update.

Example command that uses the -Partitions parameter:

Set-MIISADMAConfiguration -MAName ‘AD_MA’ -Forest Contoso.COM -Credentials (Get-Credential Contoso\ma_ADMA) -Partitions ‘DC=Contoso,DC=COM;DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=Contoso,DC=COM’

-Container

This parameter is updated to allow one or more containers to be specified together with the -Parameters parameter. It uses the following rules:

  • If the –Partitions parameter is present, parameter –Container can now apply to single or multiple containers by using the ";" delimiter.
  • If –Container is absent or no container are given for the partition, all the containers of this partition are selected.
  • If –Partitions is absent, the MIISADMAConfiguration cmdlet behaves in the same manner as it did prior to this update, and –Container can accept only a single containe.

Example command that uses the -Partitions and -Container parameters:

Set-MIISADMAConfiguration -MAName ‘AD_MA’ -Forest Contoso.COM -Credentials (Get-Credential Contoso\ma_ADMA) -Partitions ‘DC=Contoso,DC=COM;DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=Contoso,DC=COM’ -Container ‘OU=1,DC=Contoso,DC=COM;CN=Users,DC=Contoso,DC=COM;CN=Infrastructure,DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=Contoso,DC=COM’

MIM Portal

Issue 1

This hotfix addresses an issue in the MIM Portal that affects the sorting of a customized list view based on the columns that are specified in the ColumnsToDisplay property.

Issue 2

This hotfix updates HTML elements and attributes in the password registration portal and MIM Portal.

Issue 3

The object picker does not search objects that have special characters in their name.

Issue 4

This hotfix updates the translation of the user interface strings that relate to the “Password Reset AuthN Workflow” activity into Russian.

Issue 5

This hotfix addresses an issue that affects the Leave Member and Remove Member buttons when the group resource type is customized.

Issue 6

This hotfix adds a new search scope that is named "All Groups" to enable searching for and joining groups if the user does not know whether the group is a security group or a distribution list.

Issue 7

Specific culture localization settings for Spanish and French revert to English.

Issue 8

When you update an integer attribute value on the Extended Attributes tab of an object in the MIM Portal, the value is limited to a 32-bit integer. This issue occurs even though the same attribute allows 64-bit integer values if it is updated outside the Portal.

Issue 9

Resource Control Display Configuration (RCDC) does not allow a default tab to be configured

In this hotfix, the UOCInitialTabName parameter is added to the URL so that an object loads together with its associated RCDC.

Examples

The current RCDC users page has four tabs: General, Work Info, Contact Info, Summary.

If you open the corresponding XML, you find XML code that resembles the following:

<my:Grouping my:Name="WorkInfo" my:Caption="%SYMBOL_WorkInfoTabCaption_END%" my:Enabled="true" my:Visible="true">

If you provide the following code for an RCDC users page, the Work Info tab automatically opens:

http://mimPortal/IdentityManagement/aspx/users/EditPerson.aspx?UOCInitialTabName=WorkInfo

Or, if you provide the following code for a default administrators page, the Work Info page automatically opens:

http://mimPortal/IdentityManagement/aspx/users/EditPerson.aspx?id=7fb2b853-24f0-4498-9534-4e10589723c4&_p=1&UOCInitialTabName=WorkInfo

MIM Password Registration Portal

Issue 1

On the Question and Answer page, the initial scroll position is incorrect and prevents users from seeing the initial question.

MIM Service

Issue 1

roker service conversations are closed after a sync export to the MIM Service database.

Issue 2

A custom expression that includes Concatenate() is replaced by a plus sign (+) and generates an error when it is saved.

Issue 3

This hotfix addresses an issue that affects the MIM Service database stored procedures in which deadlocks might occur in approval workflows. In particular, deadlocks might occur in deployments that have complex or general Set definitions (for example, sets that match "/*" instead of specific resource types).

BHOLD

Issue 1

An inconsistency can occur between the Permission name and attribute changes that occur during an export, import, and subsequent export process in MIM Sync. In this case, BHOLD receives duplicates of a renamed group and maintains the original group in the database.

Issue 2

The Attestation Campaign Portal has an incorrectly worded title that displays campaign progress.

Cheers,
Jorge
