Configuration of the command line interface consists of two parts:

  1. You need to set up the proper security between the Adapter Platform and the command line interface. By default, the sm_ems command line interface does not prompt for authentication credentials.

    If you are working in a secure environment, you need to create an entry in the clientConnect.conf file (using the sm_edit utility) that provides the necessary username and password for the sm_ems interface. The username in this entry must match a user in the corresponding serverConnect.conf file. You must edit the clientConnect.conf file on the host where sm_ems is running.

  2. You must modify your third-party application to call sm_ems.
