Christmastime FIM/MIM Open Source WF Reviews

Over the years since FIM was first beta’d as ILM2 we have seen some cool workflows be released to open source. This is my review of the workflows I can find that are open source. First let me salute everyone who has contributed to the FIM and MIM community with these big undertakings. That said I am trying to give guidance to my readers as to what is the most useful in various situations and so I will make specific recommendations.

So what’s under the tree for Open Source Workflows?

Conclusion
MIMWAL

Gotta have it — this recent addition to the FIM/MIM world is great! But must have FIM 2010 R2 (4.1.3496) or later
FIM Powershell Workflow Activity
Craig Martin, Brian Desmond, Henrik Nilsson, James Booth
Sept 2013
Superseded (but if you still haven’t upgraded to FIM R2) — Great when it first came out but now use MIM WAL instead
PowerShell for FIM 2010
WorkFlowActivity (other features reviewed elsewhere)

Superseded — Also nice when it first came out but now use MIM WAL instead

Maybe — If MIMWAL Run PowerShell Script activity can’t get it done or you already have C# code then use this

Maybe — If MIMWAL Run PowerShell Script activity can’t get it done or you already have C# or VB.NET code then use this
FIM Workflow Library

Possible — If you are storing all of the accountNames or MailNickNames in SQL then take a look at this
ILM 2 RC0 Ensynch Custom Workflow Activity Libary
Joe Zamora
April 2009
Hidden nugget — While this is more of a sample and the UpdateAttributeActivity has been superseded by MIMWAL (and others), the OwnerRollup Activity has value if you need to find a new owner to a group, service account when the existing owner is termed. Ditto for managing contractors

Decent docs

Allows you to run as Requestor or as FIMService
Can access Workflow info such as RequestID, TargetID, ActorID, WorkflowDefinitionID, WorkflowDictionary
This module also can help manage FIM Service and FIM Sync and you can implement rules extensions and ECMA using PowerShell scripts

FIM 2010 Granfeldt Workflow Activity Library
WF Activities
Run C# code — interact with WF Data or FIM Service
Reference libraries
Parameters
Specify your destination
Lookups
Create Object
Delete Object
Copy Values
Good solid library for customizing

The Last FIM Workflow You Will Ever Need
Let’s you run VB.Net or C# code
Pick your Language, NameSpaces to use, and additional libraries to load, pick your Actor, Pass in parameters you need, specify a return type, and the destination attribute
Good solid library for customizing and allows you to choose between VB.Net and C#

FIM Workflow Library
Make Account Name — pulls from SQL table
Make Email Alias
Set Entitlements
Docs very limited
Interesting that it pulls from SQL

ILM 2 RC0 Ensynch Custom Workflow Activity Library
UpdateAttributeActivity – An interim solution to the Function Evaluator limitations.
OwnerRollupActivity – Walk the manager chain to find a suitable owner.
One of the first Custom workflow activity libraries for FIM. Owner Rollup Activity is interesting as it allows you to find a new suitable owner for a Group or service account when the existing owner is terminated.

Disclaimer: some of these have been created by friends of mine and even by an employee. I have tried to review these purely from the view point of utility.
