Endpoint Manager connector

The Endpoint Manager connector gathers data about devices from Ivanti Endpoint Manager (EPM).

When you use a connector for Endpoint Manager, the connector server should be installed in a location where it can contact both the Endpoint Manager core server and the Ivanti Cloud server. You should not run the Endpoint Manager connector while database maintenance is happening.

Older Endpoint Manager connectors needed to be local to the Endpoint Manager core server. With newer connectors, the connector server can be installed in other locations as long as it can access the Endpoint Manager database.

An Endpoint Manager 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.
  • SQL Server name. The IP address or DNS name of the server where the Endpoint Manager database is running.
  • SQL database. The name of the Endpoint Manager database.
  • Username and Password. Credentials to access the Endpoint Manager database. The account must have read and write privileges.
  • Authentication. The type of authentication.
  • 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.
