MIIS/ILM/FIM Code Experiment: Dynamics AX Management Agent (part 3)

Hello!  One of the things I was tasked with was to set the initial Dynamics AX password for a new user.  I used information derived from our HR source to create the first password.  This information needed to be encrypted in Dynamics AX on export, so the password encryption piece was added into the AX management agent. …
