The Changes Activity fails to run due to a missing endpoint element

After configuring the MIM Event Broker Changes Activity to run an operation list, and adding it to a relevant MPR, the workflow fails due to a PostProcessingError, with a missing endpoint element listed as the reason.

Affected Software

  • MIM Event Broker
  • MIM Event Broker Changes Activity
  • MIM Service and Portal


The following error message is returned by the MIM Event Broker Changes Activity when an attempt is made to run an operation list:

Error connecting to MIM Event Broker, please review the inner exception: Could not find endpoint element with name 'ServerNotifications' and contract 'EventBrokerService.IEventServiceCollector' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this name could be found in the client element.        


This error usually means there has been an error trying to match the configuration present in the Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe.config of the MIM Service. Please confirm the steps listed here have been followed correctly, and ensure that the MIM Service is restarted following any changes.
