Integration Properties

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

The Integration Properties page lets you specify export integration properties. This page is accessible from Flexera Integration > Integration Properties. The integration properties let you choose whether to accept IT Asset Management as the source of truth for various data types. Choosing No for any option sets ServiceNow as the source of truth for that property and choosing Yes for any option sets IT Asset Management as the source of truth for that property.

The descriptions in the following sections show you which properties are for use with exports from ServiceNow and which properties are for use with exports from IT Asset Management.
