In addition to create user accounts, the agent also sets attributes, adds user accounts to distribution lists and deletes users from distribution lists. The agent also provides support to bring visibility to user accounts and to appoint, or remove, the expiration date of the accounts, and can be adapted based on your personal preference.
Since MIM/FIM does not contain any agent to create user accounts in Novell GroupWise, Devexus have developed an agent that creates and manages e-mail accounts to GroupWise. Novell GroupWise is a calendaring application with integrated email, address book and task management.
* In 2014, Microsoft announced that Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) is renamed into Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM). FIM 2010 R2 is the successor to Microsoft Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM) 2007. ILM was in turn an amalgamation of the products: the Certificate Lifecycle Manager (CLM) 2007 and Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS) 2003.
