Importing data from a Wise Software Repository on a schedule

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.

See Importing data from a Wise Software Repository.

See When Wise Connector can import data from a Wise Software Repository.

If you want more control over what is imported, use a manual import.

See Importing data from the Wise Software Repository manually.

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.

To import data from a Wise Software Repository on a schedule

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click All Settings.

  2. In the left pane, under Settings, click Software > Data Provider > Providers, and then select the data provider that imports data from the Wise Software Repository.

  3. In the right pane, under Task Status, click New Schedule.

  4. In the New Schedule dialog box, under Schedule, specify a schedule for the import task.

  5. Under Input, type a description for the task.

    This description identifies the task in the list of tasks that are associated with the data provider.

  6. Under Action, select one of the following options:

    • Import Data

      This option imports only the metadata of the available software resources into the Software Catalog. A software package resource is created in the Software Catalog. This software package resource is sourced from the Wise Package Studio share point directory.

    • Import Data and Package

      This option imports the metadata of the available software resources into the Software Catalog and the associated software packages into the Software Library. The software package resource in the Software Catalog is sourced from the Software Library and not from the Wise Package Studio share point directory.

  7. Click Schedule to complete the creation of the scheduled import task.

    This import task is listed in the Task Status section of the data provider.
