    I would like to see videos of how a CI Owner would use this interface to update their CI(s). These videos do not provide that sort of overview. Only how to search for CIs or how to administer the platform. Those are helpful, but a video of how a CI owner might use this to update existing CI records would also be very helpful.

      Hi Chris,

      We have a relevant topic - Editing CIs and relationships in BMC Atrium Explorer for you to refer in Atrium Core version 9.1. However, we have a video only for the Atrium core version 19.02. You can visit this video link -  

      Hope you find this information useful.

        Thank you Maithili.

        This is helpful and I appreciate the link to the video.

        One of the capabilities that I would like to explore with the product team is the restriction of editing rights based on assignments. Today, it seems to be an "all or nothing" method. If I can edit one CI, I can edit any CI. We would like to impose appropriate "guard rails" based on permissions/personas so that only if you own the CI or are a member of the group that supports the CI are you allowed to edit it or add relationships to it. Do you have any additional guidance in that regard?

        Thanks, Chris
