Project a Connector Space Object into the Metaverse
For this procedure, in Joiner, you can project a disconnector object in a connector space to create and join a new metaverse object. By doing this, you enable attribute flow between the connector space object and the new joined metaverse object. You can also configure projection rules for a management agent on the Configure Join and Projection Rules page in Management Agent Designer. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the FIMSyncJoiners security group or the FIMSyncAdmins security group .
To project a connector space object into the metaverse
On the Tools menu, click Joiner.
In Management Agent, click the management agent that contains the disconnector object that you want to project to the metaverse.
In Disconnectors, click one of the following disconnector types:
To search for all disconnector objects regardless of their type, click All Disconnectors Types.
To search for disconnector objects that can be joined or projected by rules, click Disconnectors.
To search for disconnector objects that cannot be joined or projected by rules, click Explicit Disconnectors.
To search for disconnector objects in the connector space that contain a set of rules that prevents them from being automatically projected or joined to corresponding metaverse objects, click Filtered Disconnectors.
In Disconnectors, click the object that you want to project to the metaverse.
In Project Type as, click the object type available for this object.
When an object is projected to the metaverse, the new metaverse object is assigned a system-generated globally unique identifier (GUID).
When projecting a reference object that has been previously disconnected since the last synchronization, you must run a full or delta synchronization of the associated management agent so that the referencing objects can reference that object again. For example, if object A is a reference object for object B (referencing object), and object A is disconnected, object B no longer displays a reference (in object properties) to object A. If you project object A back to the metaverse, you must run a full or delta synchronization of the management agent so that object B can reference object A again.
