Setting Up a MID Server

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

You may already have an operational MID server (accessible from your chosen inventory beacon) that you wish to use for inventory transfers from ServiceNow to FlexNet Manager Suite. If so, and the MID server is validated in ServiceNow, you may skip this topic.

On the other hand, you may prefer to set up a specific MID server especially for this inventory connector. If so, follow these steps while you are still logged into ServiceNow with administrator privileges.

To set up a MID server that stages data from ServiceNow:

  1. In the navigation bar, expand MID Server and click Downloads.
  2. Click the link appropriate for your platform.
  3. In the navigation bar, in the MID Server group, click Installation Instructions, and click the link appropriate to your version of ServiceNow.
    The documentation opens in a new tab.
  4. Step through those instructions to complete installation of your MID server.
    Take particular note of the exact name you give this MID server, as you will need it again soon. (It is also available through MID Server > Servers.)
  5. Be sure to validate your MID server (see the Validate the MID Server link on the MID Server installation page).
