Setting up the SCCM connector

The Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) connector enables communication between TrueSight Vulnerability Management and an SCCM server.

You can set up the SCCM connector either during the installation process or afterwards. This topic describes how to set up connector after the installation process.
