The beta for Data Connector 7.0 is now available for download. As part of the 7.0 release, we have moved the Connector functionality into the Symantec Management Platform and it is no longer a standalone solution. The functionality will now be available to all solutions and customers.

Highlights of this release include:

  • Import Organizational Views and Groups - This allows you to create and populate new Organizational View and Groups structures from any of the data sources that Connector supports.
  • User Interface/Usability updates - The User Interface has been re-factored to help with usability and make connector integrations even easier.
  • Virtual Data Classes - A Virtual Data Class allows you to federate data into the Notification Server CMDB. This is done by creating a key from a resource type in the CMDB to an external source. You can then reference data from the other data source without importing the data. This data can then be used in reports and the views in the console. Depending on the way that you need to leverage the data, you can now choose to federate the data by importing natively to the NS CMDB or federating by referencing or linking to the data externally.

You may register for this product at http://beta.altiris.com.  We thank you for your participation.

Wow I gotta say Connector was pretty awesome before, but the Virtual Data Classes function could turn out to be especially powerful when integrating with our MIS system.  I really look forward to trying it out.
