Integration of 3rd part inventory with AMO

Integration of 3rd part inventory with AMO


We´re looking for a way to integrate into AMO the data from another inventory application, as GESPARK. This app has administrative information about the units, as the guarantee period,location, etc.

How could we integrate this info into the AMO DDBB?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Integration of 3rd part inventory with AMO

If you simply want to add extra information about units that AMO has already added to the db, the easiest way is to use mif files to add the data to the inventory section for the unit.  I have found that using the alternative method (using templates) to store the data for the unit is VERY frustrating, as often the data is overwritten.

My understanding is this - if you place information in a mif file in the clientws folder on an agent machine, the agent will collect it and send to the database.  If the information is NOT structured in such a way to match a pre-defined template, the data will simply be added to the Invenotry tree for the unit.  

So, in the example below, if you put a .mif file (with any name) with the following contents in clientws to be collected by the agent, it will create a section under Inventory called Information, with a branch called General2, with an attribute called test2 with a value of test.

This way, you simply have to have a way to get the data out of the other system and then use a script to create the mif files.


Start Component
Name = "Information"
 Description = " "

 Start Group
Name = "General2"
  ID = 2
  Class = ""
  Description = ""
Start Attribute
   Name = "test2"
   ID = 3
   Description = ""
   Type = String(64)
   Value = "test"
  End Attribute
End Group
End Component
