Writing to the Metaverse for deleted objects
Is it possible to write to the Metaverse when an object in deleted from a Connector Space? I have a case where an attribute is contributed by an object in a given CDS, when that object is deleted I need to "turn off" the attribute in the MV. Can I do this in ShouldDeleteFromMV?

Yes it's possible, but I tend to do this using another connector of lower order precedence (in your case have a constant flow of say FALSE into your MV attribute, set precedence = 2 (assuming the existing CS has precedence = 1) and let FIM do its normal default behaviour of deleting the contributed value from your deleted CS object. Trying to trick FIM into leaving the value there (eg. the turning MV object feature "do not recall values from contributing MAs" ON - which I wouldn't recommend as best practice by any means!) or trying fancy IAFs are going to lead you 'round the garden path.Bob Bradley (FIMBob @ http://thefimteam.com/) ... now using Event Broker 3.0 @ http://www.fimeventbroker.com/ for just-in-time delivery of FIM 2010 policy via the sync engine
