You can import the metadata of software resources from a data provider into the Software Catalog. You can also import the software package that is associated with the metadata into the Software Library if the data provider supports this functionality.
Configure the precedence settings for the data provider.
After you configure a connection to a data provider, you should configure the precedence settings for the data provider. Precedence settings determine when a data provider can update the metadata of a software resource that is in the Software Catalog.
Import the data of the available software resources.
You can import the data on a schedule or manually. A scheduled task imports all of the software resource data that the task is designed to import. With a manual import, you can select specific software resources to import.
This report lets you view the status of the import tasks for all data providers or for a specific data provider. You can double-click a task to see the status of each software resource that the task attempted to import. This report is in the Data Providers folder, which is in the Software reports folder.
