FIM 2010 R2 Reporting – First Strike!

Hi, my name is Adam and here at Predica, I’m dealing with Business Intelligence solutions. As you can see on our Company site, we are specialized on two Microsoft technologies i.e. SharePoint and Forefront Identity Management (FIM). So in this series of posts I would like to share with you my experience and problems which I met during working with FIM 2010 R2 Reporting.


In whole series I will explain from beginning how it works, how to use it, what capabilities it carries on and I shall indicate the knowledge resources on which I based on.

In my first post I will try to introduce you to the FIM Reporting architecture. I will tell you how the data flows and where are stored. In the second post I will present in more details Data Warehouse database. The next post will describe System Center Managements Packs. Briefly I show how Managements Packs are built.
In the last two posts (the most interesting part) I will tell how to extend reporting for new attributes (part one) and new FIM resources (part two). For both scenario I show how to build own Management Pack. We will also look inside the warehouse to show you how logged data are stored.


Before you begin, make sure that you have fully configured environmental. Detailed guide you can download from here. Or you can based on website version.

See you soon!
