Get the archive for your GLPI

First, download archive:

FusionInventory for GLPI tarball name follow this convention:

  • fusioninventory-for-glpi_
  • GLPI major release (0.80, 0.83, 0.84, 0.85, etc)
  • a ‘+’ symbol
  • FusionInventory release

Install or update

Update

You must FIRST disable the FusionInventory plugin via GLPI web interface and then move the plugins/fusioninventory folder out of the plugins/ folder. This ensures any deprecated files will be properly removed.

Don't click on UNINSTALL link. If you do this, you will LOOSE all FusionInventory data.

Installation

If a previous FusionInventory version is already installed, you must read the Update section.

It’s also always a good idea to do a backup of your database.

  • Uncompress the archive into the plugin folder of GLPI. File list seems to be like :

    • folder glpi
      • folder plugins
        • _folder fusioninventory
          • file index.php
          • file hook.php
          • folder front
          • folder inc
  • Connect to GLPI
  • Go in the menu Setup > Plugins
  • Install the plugin FusionInventory
  • Activate FusionInventory

These operations will create or upgrade the database and set the correct rights on the plugin. Do the same for all fus* plugins

Initial configuration

Once the plugin is activated, you will have to go on the Administration > Entities > Root entity > tab FusionInventory page to set the Service URL. You need to enter the location of your GLPI server, for example http://glpi.mydomain/.

Once this is done, you can install and configure. your first agent.

Options detail in general configuration

In general configuration of the plugin FusionInventory for GLPI, there are the options:

SSL-only for agent: send an error response to an agent when this agent communicates to the server without SSL.

Security

We strongly recommend to activate SSL on the server side to protect human user communications, and eventually agent communications too.
