Selecting a Step for Connected or Disconnected Modes

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Procedural steps in an inventory adapter can be selected to run only in disconnected mode, while others are automatically disallowed in that mode.

All procedural steps of the types TargetToSource or ExecuteOnTarget are automatically disallowed in disconnected mode (such as when the adapter runs on an inventory beacon). Steps of all other types by default run in both connected and disconnected modes. Use this procedure to flag an individual step to run exclusively in disconnected mode, when it functions as an alternative to disallowed steps.

Tip: Only TargetToSource and ExecuteOnTarget steps are disallowed for disconnected mode. It is not possible to make steps of other types apply exclusively to connected mode. Either they apply in both connected and disconnected modes, or you can use this procedure to limit them to disconnected mode only.

To select a step for connected or disconnected modes:

  1. In the Step Explorer, select the step you want to restrict to disconnected mode, so that its details appear in the edit panel.
  2. In the properties area at the top of the edit panel, select the Disconnected check box.

    While this check box is selected, this step runs only when the adapter is executed in disconnected mode, such as on an inventory beacon. This setting is irrelevant when the Execution property is set to TargettoSource or ExecuteOnTarget, as all such steps are disabled for disconnected mode.
