You can schedule when Wise Connector imports data from the Wise Software Repository. With a scheduled import, all available software resources are imported. A software resource is available if it has data that is ready to be imported.
If the metadata for a software resource already exists in the Software Catalog, precedence settings determine if a Wise Connector can update the data. The exception is File Inventory data, which is additive, so precedence settings don't apply. If a software resource in the Software Catalog already has an associated software package, Wise Connector cannot update the package.
In the following procedure, the import is scheduled from the data provider in the Providers folder. You can also schedule the import from the right-click menu of the data provider in the Data Provider Status Web part.

This option imports the metadata of the available software resources into the Software Catalog and the associated software packages into the Software Library.
