When setting up basic and necessary information for the adapter definition, the requirements are organized in five main tabs:
Adapter: Specify basic descriptive information for the adapter. For more information, see Section 4.2, Adapter Definition Properties.
Icon: Specify an icon for the adapter from the Operations Center icon library or select a custom icon. For more information, see Section 4.3, Assigning an Adapter Icon.
Properties: Specify defaults for the run-time adapter properties, including the alarm columns displayed in the Operations Center console, and the adapter hierarchy file and stylesheet file. For more information, see Section 4.4, Specifying Run-Time Adapter Properties.
Scripts: Set up defaults for scripts that should run based on adapter activity. For more information, see Section 4.5, Defining Script Triggers.
Database: Specify the database connection that is used by the adapter at run-time. For more information, see Section 4.6, Setting a Run-Time Database Connection.
If you change adapter properties after deploying an adapter, it is necessary to stop and delete the adapter instance, undeploy the adapter, then redeploy the adapter and create an adapter instance.
