Creating a job using the Integration Job Builder wizard
The information in this topic, including the sub-topics, are applicable if you are using BMC Atrium Core console through a browser that supports Adobe Flash. For information about creating an Atrium integrator job in BMC CMDB Portal, see Creating an Atrium Integrator job to import data.
You can use the Integration Job Builder wizard in the Atrium Integrator console to create a simple job for transferring data from XML files, CSV files, or databases (IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, and Sybase) to BMC CMDB. The wizard has built-in templates that specify typical integrations based on BMC experience in populating the CMDB.
You must specify the business names for the information types to be transferred to BMC CMDB. The wizard automatically selects the Common Data Model (CDM) classes and relationships based on the information entered.
- The best-practice templates are installed as part of the BMC CMDB installation and not the Atrium Integrator server installation. If the templates are not displayed in the Integration Job Builder wizard, you must verify that they have been successfully installed on the BMC CMDB server that you have specified as the target source. To verify, check the NGIE:BSM template.
- When creating an Atrium Integrator job using Job Builder wizard, make sure that the job name does not contain a space before and after the special character.
For example, test & delta is not considered as a valid job name.
High-level steps for creating a job using the Integration Job Builder wizard
BMC recommends that you use the Integration Job Builder wizard to automatically generate a job and transformations from the best practice templates. This improves your productivity by providing a starting point for developing and simplifying the transformation of data into BMC CMDB. If you want to import CIs that are not included in the best practice templates, you must create a relationship between the CIs before creating a job.

You must specify the job name and description, external data store, and the CMDB class and DatasetID to which you want to transfer data. For more information, see Specifying source and target details.
