For this procedure, in Metaverse Designer, you can enable and specify a rules extension that performs account provisioning. With provisioning, you can perform object-level actions, such as creating, connecting, and disconnecting objects in a connector space, based on changes to joined metaverse objects. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the FIMSyncAdmins security group.

To configure provisioning
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.

  2. In Options, select Enable metaverse rules extension.

  3. In Rules extension name:, type the name of the rules extension, or click Browse to select the rules extension that contains rules provisioning.

  4. To run the rules extension in a separate process, select Run this rules extension in a separate process.

  5. Select Enable Provisioning Rules Extension.

  6. To unload a rules extension if an operation for a single object exceeds the specified amount of time, select Unload extension if the duration of a single operation exceeds, and then specify a time in seconds. Processing will then continue with the next object.


Provisioning requires a rules extension that implements the IMVSynchronization method to manage objects in the metaverse and connector space. For more information about using a rules extension for provisioning, see the FIM Developer Reference.


Rules extensions must reside locally on the FIM server in the Extensions folder, by default, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Server\2010\Synchronization Service\Extensions.
