For this procedure, in Management Agent Designer, on the Select Attributes page, you can select attributes from one or more of the four default object types (those selected on the Select Object Types page) or add additional extended attributes to the management agent's schema. Unlike other management agents which get their schema information directly from the connected data source, management agents for Lotus Notes have a default schema that only contains those common attributes in a new Lotus Notes server installation. If the Lotus Notes server's schema is manually extended from default, and those extended attributes are synchronized with Microsoft® Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010, then it is necessary to also extend the management agent's schema. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the FIMSyncAdmins security group.

To select attributes (Lotus Notes)
  1. In Management Agent Designer, on the Select Attributes page, in Attributes, select the check boxes to the left of the attributes that you want to include.

  2. To add a new attribute click Add.

  3. In the Address Book dialog box, in Name, type the attribute name.

  4. In the Type listbox, click an attribute type.

  5. If the attribute is multi-valued, select Multi-value.

  6. In Associated object types, select those object types that will be associated with this attribute.

  7. To remove an extended attribute, click the attribute and then click Remove. Default attributes cannot be removed.


By default, a Lotus Notes server schema contains four object types; AddressBook, Certifier, Group, and Person. A management agent for Lotus Notes schema contains only these four object types and cannot be extended, therefore extended attributes must be associated with one or more of these four object types.
