Installing the Adapter

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
Integrating two sophisticated systems likes these involves a number of procedures, documented in the topics shown:
  1. Installing the new, intermediate DB used for data manipulation and transfer (see Preparing the Databases).
  2. Modify the compliance database in FlexNet Manager Suite with a custom property for additional values (also in Preparing the Databases).
  3. Installing and configuring the export utility that brings data out of FlexNet Manager Suite and into the intermediate database (still in Preparing the Databases).
  4. Declaring a dataset within Atrium for data exchange, and authorizing an account to use that dataset (see Reserving an Atrium Dataset).
  5. Importing the supplied Atrium jobs and data transforms into your Atrium system (see Importing Atrium Jobs and Transforms).
  6. Configuring the supplied Atrium jobs with appropriate settings for your environment (see Configure Atrium Jobs).
  7. For the import of asset data from Atrium to FlexNet Manager Suite, installing the FlexNet Business Adapter Studio (which brings with it the Business Importer), and integrating the Business Importer with BMC Remedy Mid-Tier (see Install the Business Importer and Link with Remedy).
  8. Initially populating the CMBD with configuration items from FlexNet Manager Suite, and then adjusting settings to allow for reuse for future imports (see Tuning Creation of Configuration Items).
  9. Schedule regular operations of the adapter (see Scheduling the Adapter).

This chapter also includes details about Verifying Data Export to BMC Atrium.

If you are transferring large datasets, you should also prepare an environment variable as described in Preparing for Large Datasets. (Other configuration options, including relocating or renaming the log file, are also documented in the chapter Additional Customization of the Adapter.)
