Re: Adapter Management in HP UCMDB

1. Every discovery job consist of two parts adapter and job itself. It was done to provide flexibility to create several discovery jobs (every one with different values of attributes) on top of same adapter.

Adapter Management is UI manager where you can change adapters from.


2. Yes. You can both change and create new adapters.


3. We are using Jython for discovery scripts. It  is an implementation of the Python programming language written in Java. It giving an option to import and use Java classes. Please check Developer's Guide for more info.


4. In many cases there is no difference. Developer's Guide will provide more info.
