Configure join and projection rules

For this procedure, in Management Agent Designer, on the Configure Join and Projection Rules page, you can configure the association of a connector object with a metaverse object. When you run a management agent, a join search is applied to each object in the connector space configured for join rules, which attempts to find a corresponding object in the metaverse. Management agents apply projection rules to objects where a join has failed or was not configured. You can also specify that a rules extension resolve join rules. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the MIISAdmins security group.

This procedure applies to management agents for the following Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 editions:

Enterprise Edition Identity Integration Feature Pack for Active Directory
All Active Directory, Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM), Active Directory Global Address List (GAL)
