Configure the Miss Marple connector

The Snow Integration Connector for Amando Software Miss Marple is configured in the Snow Integration Manager (SIM). For more information on SIM, refer to Snow Integration Manager.


This connector requires that you have a username and password with read access to the Miss Marple database.


The Miss Marple connector uses a database connection. In Snow Integration Manager, add the Miss Marple connector and continue with the following steps in the Connector Configuration: Miss Marple to complete the configuration:

  1. In the Connection component, select either of the two methods below to log in to the Miss Marple database:

    1. Connect using SQL user account credentials:

      • In Server, enter the SQL Server name.

      • In User id and Password, enter valid login credentials.

    • Mock Metering Data: When this is enabled, metering data will be generated with the user-defined duration in minutes for all software that can be identified as having run.
