15.3 Configuring a Dedicated Project for a Connector

By default, a Connector works with all projects on its assigned PTM server. After you create projects in PTM, you can specify the numeric project ID as the value for the ptm_project_id parameter to dedicate the Connector actions to that project.

To get the numeric project ID associated with a project in PTM:

  1. In the Web Interface, go to Planning > Projects.

  2. Select the project, then click Edit.

  3. In the Edit Project dialog, pause over the project name in the dialog title area. A tooltip displays the numeric ID of the project.

  4. Make a note of the project ID value.

To configure the Connector to work with a specified project:

  1. Log in to the Connector host server with a root user account.

  2. In a text editor, open the /opt/microfocus/migrate_connector/config/settings.cfg file.

  3. If you have not yet configured the connector, specify the values for parameters in the top section called [PlateSpin Transformation Manager Server].

    See Table 15-1, Configurable PTM Server Parameters for PlateSpin Migrate Connector.

  4. Specify the Project ID value for the ptm_project_id parameter under the section called [Connector Settings].

    See Table 15-2, Configurable Connector Parameters for PlateSpin Migrate Connector.

  5. Save the file, then exit the text editor.

  6. Start or restart PlateSpin Migrate Connector. In a terminal console, enter

    systemctl restart ps_migrate_connector.service

    For the Migrate Connector instance installed on the PTM Appliance, you can alternatively restart the Connector service from the Appliance Management Console.

    See Section 16.9, Starting, Stopping, or Restarting the Connector Service.
