On March 28, 2013, Microsoft put out Release Candidates for several new FIM Synchronization Service Connectors, including:
- SharePoint User Profile Connector
- Generic LDAP Connector for Open LDAP
- PowerShell Connector
The Release Candidate downloads are available via Microsoft Connect, along with the necessary upgrades to the FIM Sync Service, a technical reference for the SharePoint/LDAP connectors and some sample scripts (primarily SharePoint-related) for PowerShell
These three connectors are probably three of the most-demanded connectors, and candidates for custom connectors, so it’s good to see Microsoft taking a proactive approach in developing these.
Note that the connectors are still in Release Candidate only, so you shouldn’t be installing them in production environment yet.
