Object Type Attribute

The database objects accessible through the Business Importer.

Each Import element includes one or more Object elements for import into the central compliance database. Each Object element is related to a database object through its Type attribute.
Tip: In several cases, an imported Object may insert new values into the related database table (identified through its Type attribute). However, for the Type values below that are marked with an asterisk (*), inserting new values is only supported for single tenant on-premises implementations; and is not supported for multi-tenant implementations for managed service providers, nor for cloud implementations.
The Type attribute must exactly match one of the following values:
  • AcquisitionMode*
  • Asset
  • AssetComplianceStatus*
  • AssetStatus*
  • AssetType*
    Note: For presentation in the web interface of FlexNet Manager Suite (on-premises implementations only), new asset types inherit their XML template screen definitions from the Workstation asset type. They do not require a link to an inventory device (computer); but this requirement can be enforced by setting the managed property to 1.
