About integration settings

Integrations Settings are a flexible store of named settings with values. They are used to configure the integration between NetBackup Self Service and NetBackup. Individual Settings are grouped within sections and are accessed through Admin > Settings > Integration Settings. This section includes the full list of Integration Settings relevant to the NetBackup Self Service solution. Individual sections or settings are referred to throughout the document, in the appropriate functional area.

Some settings have Allow Tenant Override set to yes. These settings typically need to be configured on a per tenant basis and should not normally be completed in the top-level Integration Settings. Instead they are configured under the details for the specific tenant. The NetBackup Adapter Access Rights settings also have the option of user override (System wide > tenant > user). More information about access rights is available.

See Access rights.

If an override setting is manually changed from the values automatically created for the system-wide Integration Setting, that new value is ignored.

Most Tenant level integration settings are created from the home page but are edited through Admin > Organization > Tenant, on a separate tab within each tenant record. Accessing from within the tenant, only the settings that can be edited at the tenant level are available.

The Integration Settings sections that are pre-shipped are:

Table: Preset integration settings

Details

NetBackup Adapter

This section holds the settings which affect the whole of the solution. There should be only one of these sections.

NetBackup Adapter Usage

This section controls the data and calculations in the Usage panel on the home page. There should be only one of these sections.

NetBackup Adapter Access Rights

This section determines what backup and restore actions are permitted in the solution. There should be only one of these sections.

Action Request Types

This section supports overwrite of specific shipped request types. There should be only one of these sections.

The Integration Settings section that is generated from the completion of an Add vCloud Director Import form is:

Table: Generated integration settings

Setting

Details

vCloud Import import

This type of section contains details of the vCloud Director instance. Computers are imported from here and this section determines the Self Service backup server that is associated with the imported computers. Individual tenant credentials are specified against the Tenant. You can have multiple vCloud Director Import sections. More information is available.

See Registering computers.
