Launching BMC CMDB widgets from non-BMC Remedy AR System applications
You can launch the Atrium Query or BMC CMDB Explorer directly from any non-BMC Remedy AR System applications using a browser. To launch the BMC Atrium Query or BMC CMDB Explorer, you must specify the initialization parameters for the widget in the URL format.
In the URL for launching a widget, constants, such as
F490001100 indicate the field ID on the Atrium:Explorer or Atrium:Query form. These IDs are fixed values for the initialization parameters. The following table lists the parameters and field ID mappings that you can use to launch the Atrium:Explorer form.
