Show Referring Policy Objects in the Portal

The scripts on this page help make FIM Portal Policy more self-documenting by showing where certain Policy objects are used. While an MPR will show the Sets and Workflows it uses it can be difficult to see the reverse relationship - ie being able to look at a Set, Workflow or Email Template and see where it is being used.The Update-ReferringPolicy.ps1 script populates a multivalued string attributes called "ReferringPolicy" which lists the other Policy objects (such as MPRs and Sets) that use this object. This script must be run on a schedule.

The Install-ReferringPolicy.ps1 sets up the prerequisites for the Update-ReferringPolicy script to work. This includes the Schema objects, MPRs and Search Scopes. See the comments at the top of the script for details.

Both scripts use the functions library from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff720152(v=ws.10).aspx.
