Give A Product An Extensibility Point, Feed A Community


Another week of heads down coding and bug fixing for the latest Microsoft Identity Lifecycle Manager "2" product milestone, and another week with trouble finding time to produce a new blog post.  This week I would like to thank Brad, Paul, and the folks at Ensynch for providing me another easy post.  🙂  Ensynch has just published a wonderful white paper on how to write custom Windows Workflow Foundation activities for the ILM2 product, they even made their Visual Studio project public as well.  They provided me with an early read and I believe my comments were , and I quote, "This is awesome!"  This is a great explanation on the ILM2 WF extensibility point.  Given that it did not come from me, it may be more beneficial than anything I could have produced.  Their custom activity library includes some great diagnostic activities that can be used in testing any custom solution.


Without further ado you can find the white paper in the side bar of Ensynch's Identity & Access Management Practice Area.  Or for those who want direct links:

    Thanks for mentioning our ILM Custom Activity white paper. It was (and still is) great to be involved with the new release and help other users and developers get a head start on ILM 2.0

  3. We especially want to thank some of the folks from Microsoft who were so helpful in figuring out some of these pieces and general support. Steve Klem, you (Mark Gabarra), Andreas Kjellman, Markus Vilcinskas and Ahmad Abdel-wahed.

    FYI – version 1.7 of the document has been released.  It contains updates clarifying some issues with editing the ARP file.
