For this procedure, in Management Agent Designer, on the
Define Object Types page, you can define the object types
included in the template input file. You can also define an anchor
attribute for each object type and specify which attributes are
required for the object type. 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
Attribute-value pair text files, delimited text files,
Directory Services Markup Language (DSML) 2.0, fixed-width text
files, LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF)
To define object types
In Management Agent Designer, on the Define Object
Types page, in Object types, click an available object
type, and then in Attributes, confirm the available
attributes for the selected object. Verify that at least one
attribute, selected as the anchor attribute, is marked as
Yes in the Must Have column.
To configure additional object type properties, in Object
types, click an available object type, click Edit, and
then do any of the following:
If there is more than one object type and you want to configure
an anchor attribute for each object type, select theDefine
anchor attribute for this object type check box, and then, in
Select anchor attribute, click an anchor attribute for the
object type. If the template input file contains a hierarchical
distinguished name attribute, select the Use distinguished name
as anchor attribute check box.
To require that an attribute be present in all synchronizations
of the selected object, in Select mandatory attributes, in
Available attributes, click the attribute that you want to
require, and then click the Add button to the left of
Must have attributes. To remove an attribute from Must
have attributes, click Remove.
To include an attribute that can be present in all
synchronizations of the selected object, in Select mandatory
attributes, in Available attributes, click the attribute
you want to require, and then click the Add button to the
left of May have attributes. To remove an attribute from
May have attributes, click Remove.
The Must have attribute property is not enforced, however, this
property is required when validating an object against the schema.
For example, validating an object for export.
