The Default Conflict Policy

Alloy Navigator offers a default conflict policy:

here are two system rules: Equal ID and Default, and all other rules are located in between:

  • Equal ID Checks the ID value, which is the computer record ID in Alloy Discovery. If the ID is matched, the data from Alloy Discovery overwrites the data in Alloy Navigator. Otherwise, Alloy Navigator applies subsequent rules. This system rule is always processed first.
  • Default If none of the above rules are matched, the Alloy Discovery Connector creates a new Computer record in Alloy Navigator. This system rule is always processed last.

NOTE: Alloy Navigator relies on these system rules, so they cannot be deleted or modified.

The default conflict policy is usually sufficient. However, you can modify or delete non-system rules, change the order in which rules are applied, or create new rules, if needed.
