Connector configuration

The Snow Integration Connector for CloudSphere iQSonar is configured in Snow Integration Manager (SIM). For more information on the SIM, refer to Snow Integration Manager.

The iQSonar connector uses a connection to the CloudSphere iQSonar REST API.

Prerequisites

  • A user account, assigned to a role including the RestAPI View permission. This is available as an extension to the iQSonar interface.

  • A supported version of CloudSphere iQSonar is required. Refer to Snow Compatibility Matrix for versions supported by the Snow Integration Connector for CloudSphere iQSonar.

  • If you have used the Snow Integration Manager for CloudSphere iQSonar since before version SIM 5.24.1, and if you have not used HostnameOnly mode in Snow Inventory Server properly, you have to reach out to Snow support before updating CloudSphere iQsonar.

    Also refer to the Knowledge article Prevent Computer Duplicates before switching the CloudSphere iQSonar scanner from SQL to RestAPI, available on Snow Globe (requires login).

    Warning

    Updating from an SQL-based version to the REST API-based version can result in massive computer duplicates.
