Edit Indexed Property for an Attribute

For this procedure, in Metaverse Designer, you can change the indexed property of a metaverse attribute. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the FIMSyncAdmins security group.

To edit indexed property for an attribute

  1. On the Tools menu, click Metaverse Designer.

  2. In Object types, click the object that contains the attribute that you want to edit.

  3. In Attributes, click the attribute, and then in Actions click Edit Attribute.

  4. To index the attribute in the FIM Synchronization Service SQL database, in Edit Attribute, select Indexed.


You can index indexable string and indexable binary attribute types in the mms_metaverse table in the FIM Synchronization Service database in SQL. You can search indexed attributes in the table by using advanced search rules in rules extensions. For better performance, specify only indexable string and indexable binary attribute types for those attributes that can be searched for in a rules extension search rule.


To edit name, attribute type, and multi-valued properties, you must create a new attribute.
