Intel Endpoint Management Assistant connector

The Intel Endpoint Management Assistant connector gathers data about devices from an Intel EMA server.

An EMA connector has the following options:

  • Connector name. A name for the connector.
  • Connector server name. The name of the connector server that this connector is associated with. Each connector can only be associated with one connector server. If you added the connector to a specific connector server, this field may be populated for you. Otherwise, you can select the connector server from the list.
  • Intel EMA URL or server name. The fully-qualified domain name of the EMA server.
  • Username and Password. Credentials to access the EMA server. If the credentials are for an account with limited access, only device records that can be accessed are retrieved.
  • Repeats. How often the connector should gather data.
  • Start time. The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
  • Active. Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.
