Launching BMC Helix CMDB widgets from non-AR System applications

You can launch the Atrium Query or CMDB Explorer directly from any non-AR System applications using a browser. To launch the BMC Atrium Query or 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.

To launch CMDB Explorer from a browser

  1. Open a browser and type the following URL in the address field:
    http://<ar server>:<port number>/cmdb/index.html#/explorer?F490001100=NameSpace&F400109900=ClassName&F431400000=CIID&F431400001=DataSetID&F431400003=FilterName

    Make sure that you specify appropriate values for placeholders, such as <arSystemServer><nameSpace><className><CIID><dataSetID>, or <filterName>.

    For example, the following URL includes all the required and optional parameters (Name Space, Class Name, CI ID, Dataset ID, and Filter Name) to launch the CMDB Explorer widget: 
    http://<ar server>:<port number>/cmdb/index.html#/explorer?ciList=%5B%7B%22instanceId%22:%22BMC_GLOBAL_DEFAULT_SRVC%22,%22namespace%22:%22BMC.CORE%22,%22className%22:%22BMC_BaseElement%22,%22datasetId%22:%22BMC.ASSET%22%7D%5D&showRelationshipGraph=true&_d=1629433342989


    Launching the widgets requires that you log in to the Mid Tier. You can supply a login ID and password in a POST command as part of the URL.

  2. Press Enter.
  3. In the Action Request System login page, type a user name and password, and click Log In.
    The specified widget opens in the browser.
