    Please can you document the options for datasources (especially provider type and the meaning of the type).?

      Hi Andreas, 

      Thank you for your feedback. We will update the documentation.

      In the meantime, if you are looking for a specific provider type through which you want the data to be populated in the datasource, please let us know or contact BMC Support.
