Testing an Adapter

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

Completely validating the operation of an inventory adapter requires checking two stages: the reader and the writers.

Once you have finished updating all the steps that require customization in your new adapter (so that nothing is left shown bold in the Step Explorer), it is time to test that it functions correctly. This can proceed in two stages:
  • Executing the adapter from the Run from beginning button performs the first half of the import, reading data and displaying results in the Results tab of the Inventory Adapter Studio.
  • To validate the second stage, migrating the data from the staging tables into the operations database so that the data is visible in the compliance console,uploading the collected data to the IT Asset Management cloud database to that it becomes visible in the compliance browser, you need to perform a full import.

These two stages are described in the following tasks.
