The Changes Activity PowerShell script fails with a Denied error

Curtis Lusmore 7 years ago updated by anonymous 7 years ago 1


When attempting to run the ConfigureEventBrokerChangesActivity.ps1 script when installing the MIM Event Broker Changes Activity, the script fails. The Requests section of the MIM Portal reveals a Denied error has occurred.

Affected Software

  • MIM Event Broker
  • MIM Event Broker Changes Activity
  • MIM Portal


When attempting to run the PowerShell script, the following error appears in the script window:

Import-FIMConfig : Failure when making web service call.

A similar error message appears in the MIM Portal itself under the Requests section.


This error is due to the MPR configuration of the Portal preventing the addition of a new Activity Information Configuration. Refer to information on configuring the Activity Information Configuration (AIC) here, or consult your MIM Portal administrator.
