So if you have been playing with Microsoft FIM (Forefront Identity Manager) / MIM (Microsoft Identity Manager) you would already happen to know its not the best user experience out of the box if you have a complex environment.
Meet LithNet: https://github.com/lithnet
A lot of tools written by MVP Ryan Newington under whom I have had the privilege to work with. Have helped with lot of testing thus most of the codes following in the blog will contain cmdlets from the above.
Some of the MOST helpful tools in the belt are (which I use pretty much everyday)
- MIIS Powershell: Lithnet PowerShell Module for FIM/MIM Synchronization Service
- ResourceManagement Powershell: Lithnet FIM/MIM Service PowerShell Module
- ResourceManagement Webservice: Lithnet FIM/MIM Service REST API
There are some other great tools there like UMARE, ACMA, GoogleApps Management Agent which includes powershell commands to manage googleapps and some cool new stuff coming which I am not able to talk about atm 😉
If you need any explanation on how to use them, do hit me up here or the developer.
