Editing an Existing Business Adapter

Different choices are available depending on whether the Business Adapter Studio is already open.

You may be reopening an adapter that you have been working on recently, or you may be updating a business adapter originally created with an earlier release of FlexNet Manager Suite. As certain objects and attributes may be deprecated over time, you may see various alerts.

Use this process when starting from the inventory beacon (when the Business Adapter Studio is not already open):
  1. In the inventory beacon, select the Business Importer tab.
  2. In the list of Current scheduled imports, select the row identifying the business adapter you want to edit.
  3. Click Edit..., and the Edit business connection dialog appears. (For more information about completing this dialog, see Creating a New Adapter.)
Choose either of these options when the Business Adapter Studio is already open (in either mode, on the inventory beacon or the application server):
  • Click the Open icon ( Appearance of open icon) in the tool bar.
  • From the File menu, click Open....

If you open an old business adapter that contains deprecated content, a large warning dialog appears, and the status bar displays the list of deprecated objects or properties. Click on the status bar to display the list more conveniently. Deprecated objects and properties have a different icon in the tree list (on the left hand side), and also have a text explanation such as (Deprecated property) alongside the name.

Best practice is to check the adapter and delete deprecated objects and properties.
Tip: Business adapters containing deprecated objects and properties can still be executed, but the behavior may be unpredictable and you are at risk of a failed execution.
