ComplianceConnection Table

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

The ComplianceConnection table stores details about databases configured for use in compliance imports, such as Microsoft SMS.

Note: To cater for multi-tenant mode, this table may contain data for multiple tenants. Access requires that the database TenantID has been set in the SQL Server connection context information. That setting filters an underlying table to produce this view of data for the single, selected tenant.
