Questions around IdB plus solution - Chris21 to AD & Exchange

Daniel Walters 5 years ago in UNIFYBroker/Plus updated by anonymous 5 years ago 2

Do we have schemas for the Chris21 forms somewhere?

Does IdB plus have a concept of initial flow only? For password

For provisioning mailboxes via IdB plus, would I just write a PowerShell script in the post-provisioning step? Does post-provisioning only run on creation or also on synchronisation?

How does syncing the manager attribute to AD in IdB Plus work? Do I generate a DN in the transformation and flow that or is there something special with reference attributes especially to do with the order of provisioning (manager not provisioned/joined yet but a reference is flowed)?

What triggers a synchronisation on a specific user? Because in Chris21 the manager is in a position and if the person filling that position changes it will need to update the manager attribute on all users whose manager just changed.

I'm also not sure where DN calculation should take place since it needs to be ensured unique. Do I have access to the entities in a pre-provisioning script like I have in a PowerShell adapter transformation so that I can check for uniqueness then set it back to the entity and have that flow out on provision? Same for sAMAccountName.

Yes, for connectors that support password sync they often have a concept of an initial password script.
