What is the effect of disconnect user account in MIM 2016 SP2 Metaverse.

Hello. We have a user that we need to have his/her account disabled, but we still need this person working for us as a contractor. We cannot delete the account since we still need to deprovision the account when the person is terminated. We are thinking about disconnect this person existing in MIM metaverse so that when we provision new account for him, MIM will ignore the previous account.. What is the effect of disconnecting user account min MIM metaverse? Thank in advance for your help.

    Hello brichardi, Disconnecting an object from the MV object will trigger the action you selected in the "Deprovisioning windows" on your AD MA configuration. So it can done from nothing to delete the object :)

    In your case, I will suggest you to use the "Explicit disconnector" option. If you let the simple "Disconnector" state, it can be re-joined to the MV object, depending on the join rule defined in you configuration...

    But keeping the account active/inactive without any other automation/monitoring is a bad practice.

    The best way to handle that should be to let MIM sync managing the status of the account. For example, based on the start and end date of the contract of your contractor

    BR, Sylvain
