Microsoft SCCM/MECM integration

Introduced in 2022.2

Integration with Microsoft SCCM/MECM is a pre-built workflow package that keeps your CMDB in sync with computers you manage in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), recently known as Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM). It regularly imports data about your organization's computers, laptops, and mobile phones from Microsoft SCCM/MECM and creates or updates Computer and Hardware records in Alloy Navigator. This article describes how to configure the integration and how to use it.

What does Microsoft SCCM/MECM integration include?

Integration with Microsoft SCCM/MECM includes these workflow items:

  • Integration > Microsoft SCCM - workflow parameters for quick customization

  • Microsoft SCCM Integration #2912 - a workflow scheduled task that regularly imports computers and mobile phones from Microsoft SCCM/MECM to Alloy Navigator

  • Other workflow items and components that make this scheduled task work

To enable the Microsoft Intune integration, you must first configure it as described below.

Configure Microsoft SCCM/MECM integration

To start using the integration, you must enable it and specify workflow configuration. You will need to provide the credentials to access the SQL Server database that your Microsoft SCCM/MMECM uses to store the data.

To configure integration with Microsoft SCCM/MECM:

  1. In Alloy Navigator Settings App , go to Workflow and Business Logic > Workflow Configuration > Integrations > Microsoft SCCM. Instead of the desktop Settings App, you may use the web-based Admin Center for this task.

  2. Under Status, select Enabled.

  3. Provide your credentials for access to your Microsoft SCCM/MECM database: SQL Server IP address, SQL Database Name, SQL Server Username, and SQL Server Password.

  4. Specify other details, including the types of devices you want to import, the policy on handing unknown device types, and others.

    To learn about every configuration parameter, see its description.

  5. Click Save to apply your changes.

Test your Microsoft SCCM/MECM integration

After you have configured the integration in Workflow and Business Logic > Workflow Configuration, you can test the scheduled task and check its results to make sure it works correctly. You do not have to enable the schedule to test the task.

NOTE: Make sure that the Automation Server is running. In the Settings App, check the status of the Automation Server icon in the status bar.

To force run integration with Microsoft SCCM/MECM and check its results:

  1. In the Settings App, go to Services > Scheduled Tasks, select the Microsoft SCCM Integration task, and click Run on the Module menu.

    If the Run command is unavailable, make sure that the integration is enabled, SQL Sever database credentials are provided, and the Automation Server is set-up and running. You may need click Refresh to refresh the information.

  2. To verify whether the task has run and imported Microsoft SCCM/MECM data, double-click the task, go to the Sessions tab, and review the latest entry at the top.

  3. In the Alloy Navigator Web App or Desktop App, go to Configuration Management > Computers / Hardware and view the created records.
