Publishing from the BMC Atrium CMDB
In Atrium CMDB Publish environments, you can perform the following activities:
- Create additional Atrium CMDB Publish environments for advanced staging. To create an additional environment, you can define parameters by using the
- Define filters in the Infrastructure Management Adminstration Console.
During the publishing of a service model, new or modified service model components and their relationships are selected from the asset dataset in the BMC Atrium CMDB and copied to the cell.
Required rights for a BMC Atrium CMDB User
The Publishing Server requires BMC Atrium CMDB administrator rights to be able to perform the following operations:
- Access BMC Remedy AR forms
- Retrieve user groups
- Retrieve BMC Atrium CMDB class information
- Retrieve BMC Atrium CMDB reconciliation information
- Retrieve all CIs and relationships
Enabling Atrium CMDB Publish publishing
Atrium CMDB Publish is enabled by default, with a the
AtriumCMDBPublishOrigin parameter in the pserver.conf file, located in installationDirectory/pw/server/etc. For Atrium CMDB environments, cell information is retrieved from the mcell.dir file, located in the same directory.
Using BMC Impact Model Designer
When the source of the service model data is the BMC Atrium CMDB, the Publishing Server can handle all the requirements for standard publishing. For publishing service impact data after creating and promoting it with BMC Impact Model Designer, Publishing Server defines by default a 'Default' publication environment as per the parameters set in the
Default environment, filters and cell section of the pserver.conf file.
About the production environment
An Atrium CMDB Publish environment uses an asset dataset, by default BMC.ASSET. EnvId.
The production Atrium CMDB Publish environment has the following dataset and form:
Dataset and form in BMC Atrium CMDB.
Asset dataset: by default, BMC.ASSET
Contains objects to be published This is the dataset from which service model data is published to cells. regular dataset
Contains information about published CIs
The production service model data is in the BMC Atrium CMDB in the production dataset BMC.ASSET.
To ensure that the service model data in the BMC Atrium CMDB and in the cell are synchronized, the data in the PN:PublishedData form must be managed solely by Publishing Server.
