Account Configuration for Adapter

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

The user name and password that the adapter needs to access the BMC Discovery XML API are defined in FnmpADDMSettings.xml (see Installing and Configuring the Staging Tool). Here we grant that account adequate rights.

To configure rights for the account calling the XML API:

  1. In the BMC Discovery interface, select the Administration tab.
  2. In the Security section of the Administration page, click the Users icon.
  3. To create a new account in the Users page, click Add at the bottom of the page.
    Tip: If the account has already been registered in BMC Discovery, you can select it from the list of users and review its settings.
  4. Configure the adapter account, which can be a member of the readonly group. Ensure that the user name and password are exactly same values that you configured in FnmpADDMSettings.xml. For BMC Discovery 11.1 and later, the permission required to access the XML API has changed. You need to grant the new API access permission (api-access group), or update group permissions to include the api-access permission for users who require access to the XML Web APIs. Existing integrations will fail if you do not add the permission.

  5. Save your settings.
Now that you have: BMC Discovery is now configured for use of the adapter.
