Federation of data outside the CMDB: Calbro Services example
This use case describes how while critical configuration item (CI) data is store in the CMDB, other data that is detailed and related to the CIs can be federated to external data store. This helps maintain the efficiency of the CMDB while having the advantage of being able to view the federated data through the CMDB Explorer.
|Product | Component | Console||User||Action||Reference|
|Create a data store and define a federated link to cross launch the CI.||Making external data available through CMDB by defining cross-launch links in the Federation Manager|
|Class Manager||Define a federated class||Creating or modifying classes by using Class Manager|
|Federation Manager in the old UI||Link the CI to the federated data class using federated relationship class.||Retrieving federated data stored externally by creating federated classes|
Calbro Services can now access federated data related to CIs from the CMDB Explorer.
You can maintain an efficient CMDB by federating non-critical data outside the CMDB.
