Whilst Microsoft FIM/MIM can be used to do pretty much anything your requirements dictate, dealing with object types other than text and references can be a little tricky when manipulating them the first time. User Profile Photos fall into that category as they are stored in the directory as binary objects.… keep reading
In September 2016 I wrote this post detailing integrating with the Azure Graph API via PowerShell and oAuth 2.0.
Since that point in time I’ve found myself doing considerably more via PowerShell and the Graph API using oAuth. I regularly find myself leveraging previous scripts to generate a new script for the initial connection.… keep reading
It probably seems obvious by now, but I seem to live in PowerShell and Microsoft Identity Manager. I’m forever looking into the Microsoft Identity Manager Metaverse for objects.
However, sometimes I get tripped up by the differences in Object Classes between the FIM/MIM Service and the Metaverse, the names of the Object Classes (obviously not Person, Group and Contact) and in situations where they are case-sensitive. … keep reading
I’m a big proponent of using PowerShell for integration and automation of Azure Active Directory Services using the Azure AD GraphAPI. You may have seen many of my posts leverage the evolving Azure AD Preview PowerShell Module helper libraries. Lines in my scripts that use this look like the one below.… keep reading
For those of you that may have missed it, in early 2016 Microsoft released a hotfix for Microsoft Identity Manager that included a change that removed the ability for multiple management agents on a Microsoft Identity Manager Synchronization Server to simultaneously run synchronization run profiles.… keep reading

In order to make this efficient I need to use the Differential Query function of the AzureAD Graph API.… keep reading
In an age of Web Services and API’s it’s an almost a forgotten world where FTP Servers exist. However most recently I’ve had to travel back in time and interact with a FTP server to get a set of files that are produced by other systems on a daily basis.… keep reading
Last week in a customer development environment I had one of those oh shit moments where I thought I’d lost a couple of weeks of work. A couple of weeks of development around multiple Management Agents, MV Schema changes etc. Luckily for me I was just connecting to an older VM Image, but it got me thinking.… keep reading
In the last 12 months I’ve lost count of the number of PowerShell Management Agents I’ve written to integrate Microsoft Identity Manager with a plethora of environments. The majority though have not been of huge scale (<50k objects) and the import of the managed entities into the Connector Space/Metaverse runs through pretty timely.… keep reading
In August 2016 I wrote this post on how to use PowerShell to leverage the Microsoft GraphAPI and use Differential Queries. The premise behind that post was I required a Microsoft Identity Manager Management Agent to synchronize identity information from AzureAD into Microsoft Identity Manager.… keep reading
