Configure the integration

Let's have a look on the configuration page: It is structured in two sections, the Basic Configuration and the Service Discovery . Let us go through them one by one.

1. Setup the Basic Configuration

In this section you can choose the VSM workspace you want to discover data from. The list will include all VSM workspaces from your account that your user has access to.
You can also set the integration to active or inactive.

2. Service Discovery

Next, you can configure how services found within your VSM workspace are mapped into IT Components of your EAM workspace.
You can choose a category that will be used for the newly created IT Components. Feel free to leave it empty.
Secondly, you can choose any tag that is applicable to IT Components and it will be added to the IT Components created by the integration. Again, feel free to leave it empty.

3. Saving & running the integration

After saving the integration, it will immediately start a synchronisation of the workspaces. In general, such a synchronization runs at least once per hour. Additionally, the integration will react to changes on the VSM workspace to update the Fact Sheets in your EAM workspace right away.

As always, the progress and the results (including warnings and errors) of the synchronisations of this integration will be tracked in the Sync Logging.
