  2. Configuring the integration.
  3. Adding a discovery profile.

Step 1: Create a credential

To create credentials:

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Accounts > Clients.
  3. On the client’s Credentials tab, add the credential information.

Step 2: Configure the integration

To integrate:

  1. From All Clients, select a client.

  4. Provide the following:
    • IP address
    • Credentials. Select an existing credential or create a new credential.
  5. Click Install.

Step 3: Add a discovery profile

To add a discovery profile:

  1. From the integration, click Add.
  2. Provide the following information:
    • Profile details.
      • Default name: IP address specified in credentials.
      • Select profile
      • IP address

After a discovery profile is created, you can do the following:
