The FIM team has announced the availability of some additional Connectors for FIM2010R2.
General Availability of PowerShell Connector
The PowerShell Connector can be used to communicate with a system through PowerShell scripts. This allows an easy and flexible way to communicate with other systems but also to pre-/post-process data and files before handed over to the FIM Synchronization Service. We believe the community will help providing scripts for this Connector for various systems and will open a place where scripts can be published for reuse.
Release Candidate of Generic SQL Connector
The Generic SQL Connector will allow you to connect to any database where you have an ODBC driver available. It enables new features compared to the built-in MA such as support for Stored Procedures, running SQL scripts, built-in delta import support, import multiple object types, connect to multiple tables, and much more. This Connector is built on ECMA2.3 which allows schema discoverability to be customized in the Sync Engine UI. A pre-release of the next Sync Engine hotfix is included with the Connector download and is required for the Connector to work.
Release Candidate of SAP Users and Roles/Groups
The updated SAP templates for Users and Roles/Groups allows you to manage Users, Roles, and Groups in SAP. This also include password sync for Users to SAP. The Connector will make sure roles are represented as groups to make it possible to manage these with bhold. This template will require the previously published WebService Connector: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=235883.
