Updating the adapter configurations

Update the adapter configurations to match your environment.

To update the adapter configurations

  1. From Grid Manager, select Manage > Adapters.
  2. From the Adapters on Grid section, select the adapter that you want to configure, and then click Configure.
  3. Enter the adapter name and description in the appropriate fields. The Properties section of the Adapter Configuration page is different depending on the adapter you are configuring.
    • The Adapter Configuration page for some adapters contains one Properties field. In this case, you enter the adapter configuration properties in XML in the Properties field.
    • The Adapter Configuration page for some adapters contains a form with text fields and other controls for you to enter the adapter configuration properties. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).
  4. ( optional ) If the Adapter Configuration page for the adapter contains a form for the adapter configuration properties, and you want to enter the property values by using XML, click Switch to XML view, and then click Switchview in the confirmation window.

    Note

    If you switch from form view to the XML view of configuration information for any adapter, and save the configuration information; you cannot switch back to form view for that adapter. If you want to reconfigure that adapter, you must use the XML view.

  5. Perform the appropriate action:
    • If the Adapter Configuration page for the adapter contains the Properties field, enter the XML configuration document as required for the adapter. For specific configuration requirements, see the TrueSight Orchestration User Guide for the adapter. If the adapter does not require a specific configuration, enter the XML text <config/> in the Properties field.

      Note

      The following table displays the name of each adapter and its online technical information.

    • If the Adapter Configuration page for the adapter contains a form view with separate fields to enter the properties, provide the required information in accordance with the TrueSight Orchestration User Guide for the adapter.
  6. Click OK. If you switched the configuration from form view to XML view, you must also click Save in the confirmation window.
