Installing Inventory Adapter Studio

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

On your inventory beacon, no separate installation is required. Inventory Adapter Studio is installed as part of the installation process for the inventory beacon.

The Inventory Adapter Studio executable: InventoryAdapterStudio.exe
Default location (beacon): C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\Inventory Beacon\DotNet\bin
      Template file storage: C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Compliance\ImportProcedures\, followed by:

  • AdapterStudioTemplates for templates downloaded from the central application server
  • CustomInventory for use in an on-premises installation (not used for IT Asset Management as a cloud service)
  • Inventory for standard adapters supplied with the product. These implement standard integration with other products. You must not edit these in any way, or they will cease to operate and cause all attempts to import using them to fail completely.
  • ObjectAdapters, with a subfolder Reader for adapters customized on an inventory beacon to run in disconnected mode.

Starting Inventory Adapter Studio

After installation, you can find a shortcut to Inventory Adapter Studio in the Windows Start menu (All Programs > Flexera > Inventory Adapter Studio).
