The spectrum of highly charged iron ions provides rich information about the dynamics in X-ray binary stars and active galactic nuclei. To model measured spectra, a precise knowledge of the transition rates is needed. We present a measurement of radiative and Auger rates for K-shell transitions in Li-like to C-like iron ions. These were produced and trapped in the transportable electron beam ion trap FLASH-EBIT and resonantly excited with X-ray photons at PETRA III. By taking ratios of the photoionization yield and the simultaneous recorded fluorescence, we suppress setup-dependent uncertainties. Together with natural line widths [1], this allows us to determine absolute values for the radiative and Auger transition rates, with a better-than-10 % accuracy in the Li-like system. Furthermore, by analyzing the angular distribution of the fluorescence photons, we resolved different radiative decay channels in the Be-like and C-like system.
