Inventory Object: Instance

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

Instance objects are uploaded to the ImportedInstance table in the operations (inventory) database. Multiple imports will merge updated data with existing records, and add new records as applicable.

The ImportedInstance table holds all of the instances which have been retrieved from the source connections.

Attributes are listed here in alphabetical order.

Property Attributes Notes
AuditEvidence Binary data from a file (maximum 2Gb). May be null.

Oracle GLAS CVS files in zip archive.

AuditEvidenceDate Date/time field. May be null.

Oracle GLAS CSV files collection date.

ExternalComputerID Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

The identifier used in the source connection for the computer.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
InstanceID Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

The identifier used in the source connection for the instance.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
InstanceName Alpha-numeric text (maximum 256 characters). May be null.

The name of the instance.

ParentInstanceID Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

The identifier used in the source connection for the parent instance.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
