twe are planning to use hp connect-it to federate and populate UCMDB with CI data from excel extracts from remedy to ucmdb . So can ucmdb connect-it connector be used as the destination connector , should it be ucmdb xml connector or just ucmdb connector? experts any thoughts help here?

UCMDB could read Excel files without Connect-It. Just FYI. Check chapter 8 of attached document.

thanks , but we are checkign to see if connect-it is another option as there are ucmdb connectors also to integrate data easily where we can write scripts to populate data . So any thoughts which ucmdb connector xml or query can be used as destination?

Another option for data population is to use the Generic Database Adapter (GDBA), see the hp_man_UCMDB10.10_Developer_Ref.pdf documentation. This adapter uses xml file for mapping table and columns from external database source to UCMDB.

yes, I have used adapters - custom and generic in ucmdb for other integrations. But for this requirement , we are were reviewing to see if we can use hp connect-it UCMDB 9 target connector if it was available inCIT 9.20 or 9.50 ,as we already have an existing connect-it scenario using ucmdb 8 java connector. Anyone here was able to use hp connect-it ucmdb xml or just ucmdb 9 connector as target connector successfully ? I will probably post this in connect-it forums also
