A working knowledge of Ivanti Automation & Endpoint Manager is required. For more information on creating Ivanti Automation modules and runbooks refer to the Automation online help and Administration guides.

The Endpoint Manager Server must be configured to allow API access.
Below is a portion of an article posted on the Ivanti Community site detailing the proper configuration.

Get the token

First we will have to register our application in the IdentityServer with a client id and shared secret :

  1. Go the core server and open C:\ProgramData\LANDesk\ServiceDesk\My.IdentityServer

  2. Backup the file IdentityServer3.Core.Models.Client.json

  3. Edit it and add at the beginning, after the first bracket :

    "Enabled": true,
    "ClientId": "roclient",
    "ClientSecrets": [
        "Description": "roclient",
        "Value": "secret",
        "Expiration": null,
        "Type": "SharedSecret"
    "Flow": 4,
    "AllowAccessToAllScopes": true,
    "AllowedScopes": []

Where secret will be your shared secret and roclient your client id.

Detailed task description

The following tasks are included in this connector download the Quick Start guide here for a more detailed description of each task and sample output. Tip:

  • Creating module parameters for the task allows you to reuse a module in multiple runbooks. This is very useful especially if you need to customize the default fields to fit your environment.
  • Select the Module Parameters tab and “autocreate unused” module parameters this creates module parameters and associates the parameters with the task fields.
