Installing Optional Patterns

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

For information about choosing which patterns to use, see Optional Patterns. For further details about each of the patterns, and modifying their behavior, see Appendix A: Details of Patterns. All these patterns are contained in a single template (Flexera.FNMP.InventoryRawData.tpl), which must be installed first. Thereafter, individual patterns can be enabled, disabled, and modified.

  1. Log in to the BMC Discovery interface, and select the Discovery tab.
  2. Select the Knowledge Management button in ADDM version 10, or BMC Discovery version 11 or later (in earlier versions of ADDM, select the Pattern Management button).

  3. Click on Upload (or in earlier versions, Upload New Package).
    Figure: Choose the file from your unzipped archive
  4. Click on Choose File, and:
    • If you are using the adapter, in your unzipped archive of the adapter, select the FlexNet Manager Platform\Installers\BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping Tools\patterns\Flexera.FNMP.InventoryRawData.tpl file.
    • If you are using the connector, on the inventory beacon navigate to C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Compliance\ImportProcedures\Inventory\Reader\BMC Discovery\, unzip that archive, and select the Flexera.FNMP.InventoryRawData.tpl file.
  5. If you are using ADDM version 8:
    1. Optionally modify (or accept) the default name of the package as Flexera.FNMP.InventoryRawData.
    2. Optionally, set the description to something you will find helpful, such as FNMP export patterns.
  6. Click Upload (or in earlier versions, Upload & Activate).

    Ensure that the message The Requested Changes were Successful is displayed. The Flexera.FNMP.InventoryRawData pattern is now in the Active state. For further fine tuning, jump ahead to step 4 in the following procedure.

Tip: For releases of BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping up to and including 11.0, if you are using data imported through the BMC Discovery adapter to manage points-based licenses for IBM and Oracle, there is an additional optional pattern that collect further details about processors available on request from Flexera. Notice that for BMC Discovery release 11.1 or later, the additional pattern is deprecated. BMC Discovery 11.1 (and later) has improved processor information collection which makes this additional pattern unnecessary.
