Publishing Your Adapter

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Publishing an inventory adapter means taking it out of test mode and putting it into production. The data uploaded by a published adapter goes into your production database. Be sure you have adequately validated the information gathered by your adapter before taking this step. On an inventory beacon, validation includes unzipping the archive package, saved at C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Beacon\IntermediateData, and examining the data contained in the XML file. When you are satisfied with the gathered data, you can publish your adapter into production.

To publish your adapter:

  1. In the toolbar, on right-hand end of the Source Connection control, click the [...] ellipsis button.
  2. In the Select Source Connection dialog, ensure that the correct connection is selected, and click Edit....
  3. In the Create SQL Server Connection dialog, clear the Is Test Connection check box.
    Editing connection properties
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click OK.
    This connection is now visible in the connections dialog on the application server. The Compliance Importer can now use this connection with your adapter for future inventory imports. You declare and choose a schedule for execution of this connection in the inventory beacon user interface.
