You can use the right-click menu to export the WhatsConnected topology map details to WhatsUp Gold v12.3 or later. When the topology map is exported, the devices discovered with WhatsConnected are automatically created as new devices (or merged with existing devices) in the WhatsUp database.
The following are created by the WhatsConnected export:
Note: WhatsConnected tools are enabled in the WhatsUp console. For more information about WhatsConnected tools, see Using WhatsConnected Tools.
During the export, WhatsConnected compares devices in the WhatsUp Gold database with those in the WhatsConnected network data. Matches are made based on device attributes to avoid duplicate devices exporting to WhatsUp Gold.
To export a topology map to Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold:
Tip: You can also select the topology map you want to export, then from the shortcut menu of the WhatsConnected console, click (Export topology to WhatsUp Gold icon). The WhatsUp Gold Export dialog appears.
Important: WhatsConnected does not allow you to export devices to the WhatsUp database that exceed the available device count in the license. If prompted, you must reduce the number of devices that you are attempting to export. Remove the devices from the WhatsConnected topology map.
Note: Only the interfaces that connect devices are exported.
To view the export results, open WhatsUp Gold console and find the device collection with the same name as the WhatsConnected topology map. The default topology map is named Network Devices.
