This section contains information about enhancements in version 18.05 of BMC CMDB.
New CMDB Explorer to view CIs and relationships
You can now use the redesigned CMDB Explorer. The CMDB Explorer has an easy-to-use interface to view configuration items (CIs) and their relationships. You can select CIs from search results, normalization error lists, completeness exception lists, and so on to open them in CMDB Explorer. You can now expand and view both the parents and children of a CI.
You can access CMDB Explorer through ITSM and other applications that consume data from the CMDB. For more information, see Searching and viewing CIs and relationships in the CMDB Explorer.
Watch the following video to know more about the new interface and viewing CIs and their relationships.
Enhanced search with custom search options
The new search widget includes various options that are customized to help you easily find the CIs that you are looking for. You can perform a simple search or an advanced search that enables you to narrow your search to specific types of CIs or to create your own customized search.
Move CMDB Definition Type across environments
You can now efficiently move CMDB Common Data Model (CDM) definitions from the development or test environment to the production environment. BMC CMDB uses the BMC Remedy Deployment Application to make this migration secure and reliable. For more information, see Promoting CMDB CDM Definitions across environments.
