If you want to collect both message-based data and raw data using the CCS agents, then you must import the agents into the agent management system. To import the agents, you must first register the agents that you want to import.
The Create or Edit Import Assets and Agents Job wizard lets you create a job that imports the agents and the assets associated with the agents.
To import assets and agents
Go to Manage > Asset System > Agents.
On the taskbar, select Import Assets and Agents.
In the Specify Name and Description panel, in the Name box, type the name for the import job.
You can optionally type the description for the import job and click Next.
In the Import Assets from ESM Data Collector panel, you may select the option, Import Assets from ESM Data Collector. You can select the option, only if you have the pre-configured ESM Managers from which you want to import the assets.
If you do not select the checkbox, then the import job by default uses the registered agents to import assets.
In the Select Asset Import Scope panel, select the scope for the asset import and click Next.
Depending upon the asset type that you select in the previous panel, the default scope is selected as a Site or an asset type. If you add a site as a scope for the import job, then the site must be configured to use CCS Manager.
In the Add Reconciliation Rules panel, you can do one of the following:
Use the Add Rule option to add a rule to the import job from the existing rules.
The Add Rule option displays the Select Reconciliation Rules panel.
Use the Delete Rule option to delete the rule that is already added and click Next.
Use the Move Up and Move Down options to arrange the rules in an order and click Next.
In the Select Reconciliation Rules panel, browse through the Reconciliation Rules folder and use the Add option to add the existing reconciliation rules to the import job.
In the Schedule panel, select any one of the following:
If you want to run the job after the wizard closes, check Run now.
If you want to run the job at a specified interval, check Run periodically and enter the following information:
In the Start On box, enter the start date and time to run the job.
Under Run periodically options, if you want to run the job only one time, select Run Once. If you want to run the job after specific days, select the number of days in the Run Every Day list box. Click Next.
In the Specify Notification Details panel, if you want to send the notification of job completion or job failure, do the following:
Type the subject and message of the notification mail.
Type the email ID of the sender and the receiver.
In the Summary panel, review the configurations for the import job and click Finish.
You can go back to the previous panels and edit the configurations any time.
You can go to the Monitor > Jobs view to monitor the current status of the job.
