To run a extension, some action must be taken that causes the extension to be called. This applies to both management agent extensions and metaverse extensions.
For a management agent extension, the specific management action for which the extension is configured must be executed. For example, to cause the IMASynchronization.MapAttributesForImport method of the extension to be called, data must be imported from the connector space into the metaverse using the management agent.
For a metaverse extension, connector space data must be changed in some way that causes the extension to be called. For example, to cause the IMVSynchronization.Provision method of the extension to be called, a metaverse object must be affected in some way by modifying its attributes or by modifying, adding, or disconnecting a connector.
