How to have Observer managed by OMS
Created: 2014-11-24   Revised: 2018-09-29
If your organization uses OMS and wants Observer to be a managed asset, you must integrate Observer into OMS. Doing so allows functionality like user authentication and authorization, plus software version control.
Caution: By following these steps, Observer will be managed by OMS. After the connection is made, you will be unable to disable the management within Observer. Therefore, the only way to remove Observer from being managed is to remove the asset from within OMS.
To change Observer to be managed by OMS:
1. Click the File tab, and click Info > Manage by OMS.
2. In the System Settings pane, click Manage by OMS.
3. Select Manage Asset with OMS.
4. In the OMS Server box, type the IP address or DNS name of the OMS server.
5. Choose the type of license to redeem using the License Type list.
6. Type OMS administrator credentials into the User Name and Password boxes.
The credentials must have permission to add new assets and/or licenses to OMS (depending on which is needed), or the asset must already be defined and the user must have access to the asset and a license number must be present.
7. Click Manage.
If successful, Observer should now be managed by OMS.
