You can create multiple OnGuard plugin roles in Security Center to synchronize entities, and receive events from more than one OnGuard system simultaneously.

Before you begin

  • Make sure that all the OnGuard servers are using the same version of OnGuard.
  • Make sure an OnGuard plugin role already exists in your system.


  1. Create a new OnGuard plugin role.
    IMPORTANT: When creating multiple OnGuard plugin roles, you can use the same database server, but you must create a new database and not reuse the current one, because two roles cannot use the same database.
  2. Configure the plugin role to connect to the OnGuard server.


Security Center connects to the OnGuard servers, and synchronizes entities and receive events from each of them simultaneously.
