Liongard Inspector Setup

Step 1: Parent Inspector Setup

Since N-able RMM is a multi-tenant system where a single portal is used to manage many Environments, you will set up a single "Parent" Inspector with your API Access Key that will then auto-discover "Child" Inspectors for each Environment.

In Liongard, navigate to Admin > Inspectors > Inspector Types > Navigate to the N-able RMM Inspector > Select Add System.

Fill in the following information:

  • Type of Inspector: Parent

  • Environment: Select your MSP's Environment

  • Friendly Name: Suggested Naming: [MSP Name] N-able RMM Parent

  • Agent: On-Demand Agent

  • Inspector Version: Latest (Auto-Update)

  • Server URL: (ex: https://www.myinstance.com)

  • API Access Key: The API Access Key generated in the steps above.

  • Scheduling: The Inspector will default to run once a day at the time the Inspector is set up. Here you can adjust the schedule

Select Save. The Inspector will now be triggered to run within the minute.

Step 2: Child Inspector Setup

After the first run of the Parent Inspector, your client N-able RMM organizations will be Auto-Discovered and surfaced on the Discovered Systems page.

Navigate to the Discovered Systems tab in your Inspectors > N-able RMM page

  • Activate your Discovered Systems by ensuring they're mapped to the correct Environment > Select the checkbox to the left of Inspector(s) > Select the Actions drop-down menu > Activate Launchpoints.
  • Users may also Archive Discovered Systems by Selecting the checkbox to the left of the Inspector(s) > Select the Actions drop-down menu > Archive Launchpoints.

Optional: Turn on Flexible Asset/Configuration Auto-Updating

If you would like this Inspector's data to be sent to ConnectWise and/or IT Glue, turn on Flexible Assets/Configurations for this Inspector:

  • ConnectWise: Admin > Integrations > ConnectWise > Configuration Types > Confirm the "Configuration Auto-Updating" toggle is enabled
  • IT Glue: Admin > Integrations > IT Glue > Flexible Assets > Confirm the "Flexible Asset Auto-Updating" toggle is enabled

Payload Trimming

If your N-able RMM Child Inspectors fail due to the payload size being too large, you can edit the Inspector and choose to exclude Workstation, Antivirus, or Installed Patches details.
