Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service 2010 Developer Reference
The Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service (FIM Synchronization Service) SDK will help you create and distribute an integrated view of identity information from multiple data sources. With FIM Synchronization Service, organizations can combine information into a single logical view that represents all the identity information for a given user or resource.
FIM Synchronization Service administrators can use this program together with Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) scripting to automate common administrative tasks. Administrators and corporate developers can implement business logic by developing rules extensions to control how management agents and the metaverse work. FIM Synchronization Service is a component of Forefront Identity Manager (FIM).
Administrators can create WMI scripts to automate many FIM Synchronization Service functions. Administrators and developers can create rules extensions that use the Microsoft .NET Framework. To understand the information in this Developer Reference, we assume that you are familiar with the .NET Framework.
To develop rules extensions, connected data source extensions, or password extensions, you need a programming language and a compiler that can create a .NET Framework class library. The examples in this reference guide use the Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual C# programming tools along with the compiler that is included in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 development system. For more information about general installation requirements for FIM, see Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Installation Guide.
