Turn on ConnectWise Configuration Auto-Updating

Liongard can create configurations in ConnectWise Manage with rich system details that will update daily.

Will Liongard update my existing configurations?
No. Liongard will create new configurations with a distinct naming convention System name (auto). After consulting the ConnectWise Manage team and our partners, we opted to create new configurations as opposed to editing existing content. Given the high degree of customization in ConnectWise Configurations, Liongard will preserve your existing Configurations and push over distinct, automated configurations.

We recommend bundling Liongard configurations to your existing configurations.

Enabling ConnectWise Manage Configuration Auto-Updating

There are three steps in Liongard to turning on the ConnectWise Configuration auto-updates:

  1. Turn on the Global on/off switch
  2. Select the Systems you want Liongard to push over configuration data for
  3. Select the Companies you'd like Liongard to push over configuration data for

Below we'll walk through the steps and how you can do a controlled test to see how Liongard configurations push over into ConnectWise.

Step 1: Turn on the Global On/Off Switch

Navigate to Admin > Integrations > ConnectWise > Configuratin Types > Configurations

Check the box "Enable Configuration Auto-Updating"


Checking this box will NOT create any configurations in your PSA

You will first need to complete Steps 2 and 3 in order to land Liongard's configurations in ConnectWise

Step 2: Select the Systems

Once you check the box to enable Configuration Auto-Updating, the toggles under the column Configuration Auto-Updating in the table below will light up.

Toggle on the Systems that you would like Liongard to create and auto-update configurations.


Controlled Testing

Toggle on the Configuration Auto-Updating for only ONE Liongard Configuration Type to start your controlled test. Next, continue to Step 3 and toggle on Configuration Auto-Updating for only ONE Liongard Environment.

Step 3: Select the Companies

On the Select Environments tab, you will now have the ability to toggle on Configuration Auto-Updating.

Navigate to Admin > Integrations > ConnectWise > Configuration Types > Select Environments

  1. Select the Configuration Auto-Updating Enabled by Default checkbox if you want companies that are imported from ConnectWise to have Configuration Auto-Updating ON by default. This will apply to any newly imported companies.

  2. In the Configuration Auto-Updating column, turn the toggle on for any of the companies you'd like Liongard to create automated configurations. You can also bulk select companies, and then, select Turn On from the Actions dropdown.

Roll out System Inspectors

After you've completed Steps 1-3, it's time to set up Inspectors!

Because you have set up your PSA integration, Liongard will auto-discover your Internet Domain & DNS Inspectors. Once activated, these Inspectors will auto-discover your TLS/SSL Certificate Inspectors. From there, roll out Parent/Child Type Inspectors. Then, move on to System Inspectors that require On-Premises Agents. Then, move on to other System Inspectors you are managing for your clients.

As you roll out Inspectors make sure this Inspector is a System in an Environment that you've already turned on the Configuration Auto-Updating.

Know the configuration data for the systems and companies you turned on will land in ConnectWise Manage in the next 24 hours by default.
