For this procedure, in Management Agent Designer, on the
Configure Connector Filter page, you can configure whether
the management agent will attempt further processing rules for an
object or disconnect the object. If the object meets connector
filter rules criteria, the object will then become a filtered
disconnector. Connector filters are not required but can be useful
in preventing unwanted objects from being synchronized with the
metaverse. 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:
Identity Integration Feature Pack for Active Directory
Active Directory, Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM),
Active Directory Global Address List (GAL)
To configure connector filter rules
In Management Agent Designer, on the Configure
Connector Filter page, in Data Source Object Type, click
the connected data source object type that you want to specify a
connector filter for, and then, in the Filter Type list box,
select one of the following options:
To specify no filter for the selected object type, click
To configure a declared filter for the selected object type,
click Declared, then, click New, then in Data
source attribute, click the attribute for which you want to
specify a filter condition; then, in Operator, click an
operator type; in Value, type a value for the condition, and
then click Add condition. To remove a filter condition,
click Remove condition, and then click OK.
To specify a rules extension to apply a connector filter rule
to the selected object type, click Rules extension.
To change the order of a filter to be applied to an object
type, in Filters for: Object type, click the filter
condition, and then click the Up or Down arrow.
Filters are combined with an AND operator if all conditions in
all filters are met. Filters are combined with an OR operator if a
condition in the first or previous filter is not met. If any
condition in a single filter is not met, that filter is not
You cannot configure a declared connector filter and a
connector filter in a rules extension to the same object type.
If you change an object type's connector filter from
Declared to Rules extension, all filter conditions of
the declared connector filter are lost.
Configuring connector filter rules is optional. For the object
types that do not have a connector filter, Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 determines join and projection actions.
Text values are not case-sensitive.
For string, numeric, or Boolean attribute types, a value
configured in a connector filter condition must be of type string,
numeric, or Boolean. For binary attributes, you must select an
operator condition Is present or Is not present, or
configure connector filter conditions in a rules extension. For
reference attributes, connector filter conditions must be
configured in a rules extension.
