Enabling Optional Patterns

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

By default, after installation some patterns are enabled and others disabled (see Optional Patterns). The following procedure allows you to turn individual patterns on and off as required, as well as enabling (or disabling) the entire module.

To enable optional patterns within BMC Discovery:

  1. In the user interface for BMC Discovery, select the Discovery tab.
  2. Click Pattern Management, and from the list of patterns at the bottom of the page, ensure that the Flexera.FNMP.InventoryRawData item is enabled, and select it. (The module must be enabled before any of its member patterns can operate.)
  3. From the Pattern Package properties, select the link for the Pattern Module.
  4. Scroll down to the Pattern Configuration area.

    Several closed groups are displayed, one for each optional pattern and another for configuration of the FlexNet inventory agent on UNIX platforms.

  5. For each group that you want to modify, select Edit Configuration to the right of the group. The group opens, and configurable controls are displayed. Select the True radio button to turn on a pattern, and the False radio button to turn off a pattern.

    More details about configuration are included in Appendix A: Details of Patterns.

  6. Click Apply.

    The modified settings are displayed.

Tip: If you later use the Edit Module button to modify the module, be sure to activate, validate, and then commit your changes.
