Summary of changes to the Common Data Model
This topic lists the changes that were made to the Common Data Model.
Changes to the BMC CMDB 19.02 Common Data Model
This section lists the changes to Common Data Model for version 19.02 of BMC CMDB.
Added location attributes on relationships
New attributes have been added to location relationships to allow specific and detailed information to be stored for locations. For example, for Location CI called 'Datacentre Denver', a CI related to 'Datacentre Denver' can have attributes for elements such as floor, row, rack, shelf that are defined as part of the relationship.
|BMC_ElementLocation||Floor||Floor where CI is located||Char (256)||N||N||Null|
|BMC_ElementLocation||Room||Room where CI is located||Char (256)||N||N||Null|
|BMC_ElementLocation||Rack||Rack where CI is located||Char (256)||N||N||Null|
|BMC_ElementLocation||Shelf||Shelf where CI is located||Char (256)||N||N||Null|
We recommend that two relationship CIs should not be created between two same end point CIs with different location information. If you have more than one active relationship for a location, it might be difficult to know the correct location of the CI.
Added new attributes for Cost Modelling
You can now use the following new attributes in the
BMC_BaseRelationship class to allow for cost modeling:
- CostFlow —The
CostFlowattribute enables you identify the directional flow of cost whether it flows upstream or downstream or is NULL.
- CostApportionment —The
CostApportionmentattribute enables you to identify the percentage of source CI cost that is to be shared by the related item or service.
Server A hosts two services- Service 1 and Service 2. If Server A is related to the two services, the CostFlow on the relationships is set to Upstream and the CostApportionment is set to 50 to show that the upstream Service 1 and 2 contribute to the cost of Server A equally.

|BMC.CORE:BMC_ComputerSystem||ReconciliationIdentificationError||Added new Enum Item||Error||No|
|BMC.CORE:BMC_ComputerSystem||ReconciliationIdentificationError||ReconciliationIdentificationError attribute was added on some classes as attribute and on some only as a field. This was rectified for all non-federated root classes this was added as an attribute.||Yes|
