You can manually import software packages and their metadata from the Wise Software Repository. With a manual import, you can select the software resources that you want to import instead of importing all the available software resources. This ability to select specific software resources gives you complete control over what is imported. For example, you might have an urgent need to import a specific software package and don't want to waste time importing other software packages.
To import data for selected software resources, you first gather a list of software resources that are available for import. You then select from this list the software resources whose data you want to import.
To import data from the Wise Software Repository manually
This task gathers a list of all the available software resources in the Software Manager database to which Wise Connector is connected. A software resource is available if it has a status of Available and contains data that has not been imported.

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