To Run a Full Import

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Only a full import causes the Inventory Adapter Studio to work through the entire process for inventory import. You should attempt a full import only after every step in your adapter has been individually tested. Keep in mind that importing large scale data incorrectly can create a significant workload to back out all the incorrect data! Consider using the Limit computers to filter for the early testing, even of the full import process.

To run a full import:

  1. Inspect the Step Explorer to validate that no step names are displayed in bold text (still awaiting customization).
    If there are bold steps in the Explorer, you cannot run a full import. Instead, circle back and complete the required customization.
  2. In the toolbar, click Full Import....
    The Run Full Import dialog appears.
  3. For a full import, ensure that the Run readers and Run writers check boxes are both selected.
    Readers collect data from the source database and write it into staging tables in the FlexNet Manager Suite database. Writers massage the data in the staging tables and transfer it into the operations database. You may use these check boxes to test each stage independently when required.
  4. Click Run Full Import within the dialog.
    The logging from the Compliance Importer is echoed in the dialog.
When the full import is finished, inventory gathered by your adapter has been written into staging tables and (provided that you also ran the writers) into the operations database.
