Thank you for your answer.

Adding scripting support for Unix connector would be nice too.
I have several dozens of servers hosting virtual machines (proxmox VE).
Users allowed to manage virtual machines must be added by running shell command "pveum useradd $user at pam && pveum aclmod / -user $user at pam -role Administrator".
And deleting users in the same way.
Unfortunately Unix connector can't execute scripts, so it must be done by workaround (i'm thinking right now how to do it).

The LDAP-based AD connector (which is in the same bundle) already has powershell scripting support. This is quite easy and very practical solution. Yet the application is somehow limited.

So this is theoretically possible. However, midPoint was designed with good interface design and encapsulation in mind and this is currently not directly possible. However it can be added if needed - and it would still be quite clean. This would be nice and generic feature. E.g. it could be used to combine CSV
