Set up the Snow License Manager Connection

To set up the Snow License manager Connection component:

  1. In the Web API URL, enter the URL to the Snow License Manager web API.

    Example 6.

    http://[your SLM url]:[port]/api


    Note

    [Port] is only necessary if Snow License Manager is running on other port than default port 80.

  2. In the Username and Password fields, enter the credentials for the Snow License Manager web API user account.

    Note

    The Password field is case-sensitive, and cannot be copied to the clipboard.

  3. To set up a proxy server, select the desired proxy in Proxy. Proxies can be configured in the Proxy profiles tab in the Snow Integration Manager main interface.

  4. Select the Advanced settings to enter the SLM connection settings in the Snow License Manager advanced connection settings window that includes:

    • Time out (minutes) - The time required for the connector to receive a response from the server. (Min: 3min, Max: 30min)

    • Retries - The number of retries a connector should perform when a timeout takes place. (Min: 0min, Max: 100min)

    • Retries delay (minutes) - The time taken between the SLM connection retries. (Min: 1min, Max: 100min)

    • Default - Selecting this would reset the settings in Step 4 to its default values.

    Select OK to save the changes made.

  5. To verify and establish a connection between the connector and the SLM server, select Test connection.

    Note

    For a connection established successfully, the Customer field is populated with the customer list received from the SLM server. Otherwise, a Test connection failed popup is displayed.

Set up the Choose SaaS providers component

To set up the Choose SaaS providers component, configure the SaaS connectors as follows:

  1. Select a SaaS provider from the Available Connectors list and then select Add. The Connector name dialog box appears.

  2. Enter a name for the connector instance in the Name field, and select OK. The connector instance appears in the Configured Connectors list.

    Note

    It is possible to add multiple connector instances.

  3. Select a connector instance in the  Configured Connectors list. A Configure section for the selected connector appears at the bottom of the Connector Configuration: SaaS.

  4. Select the connector in the menu bar to go to the configuration section for that connector.

    When you are done with the setup of the specific connector:

    • Select Save to save the configuration.

    • Select OK to close the SaaS configuration window or select Cancel to discard any unsaved changes and close the configuration window.

    Note

    It is possible to create multiple connectors with different configurations for one specific SaaS provider. However, the different connector instances must have different names.

    It is possible to rename and remove connector instances. When a connector instance is removed, all configuration options are also removed.
