Choosing Target Database Items in FlexNet Manager Suite

The business adapter you are working on is open in the Business Adapter Studio.
Tip: If you are including custom properties in your business adapter that runs on an inventory beacon (in disconnected mode), make sure that, first:

To select database items:

  1. Do either of the following:
    • Click the New Item button (Button appearance) on the tool bar
    • Right-click the adapter node in the structure tree, and from the context menu select Add New Item.

    A context menu appears listing items from the compliance database. Many of these menu entries open sub-menus. (Menu entries vary in connected and disconnected modes.)

  2. Select an item from the compliance database from the menu, working in logical order:
    • Select objects before any relationships they appear in.
    • Select objects before any other objects that refer to them. For example, if you have new vendor data and new purchase orders, ensure that the vendor object appears in the list before the purchase order object, as purchase orders refer to vendors.

    As you select an item, a new node is added to the structure tree under the adapter.

  3. Repeat for all the compliance database objects needed.
  4. If necessary, adjust the order of compliance database items by right-clicking an item and choosing Move Up or Move Down from the context menu. Remember that objects must receive imported data before they can be referenced by data imported to any other object.
    Tip: Expand a database item in the structure view to see the object’s properties.
