Understanding Inventory Adapters

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 (On-Premises)

Inventory adapters exist to extract data from one database (the inventory source), transform it as required, and write it into the destination (or target) database.

To understand the work in creating or modifying an adapter, it is helpful to know a little about:
  • The Compliance Importer, considered as the framework which runs adapters
  • The resulting structural requirements for an inventory adapter
  • What is provided in templates to help you quickly build inventory adapters
  • The object model (legal database objects and their properties) for saving content into the destination database when your inventory adapter is running on your inventory beacon in disconnected mode (see Inventory Adapter Object Model).
