Configuring federated data in BMC Atrium CMDB

You can configure BMC Atrium CMDB to display federated data. You can configure federation through the retrieval and launch methods. The retrieval method enables you to view federated data as if it were stored in BMC Atrium CMDB. The launch method enables you to view federated data through another application, such as a BMC Remedy AR System form.

The following example illustrates when you might federate data. Calbro Services stores service and maintenance records for their printers in a Microsoft SQL Server database. Allen Allbrook, a BMC Atrium CMDB administrator at Calbro Services, knows that only core data for a CI should be stored in the BMC Atrium CMDB. Detailed and related data for those CIs should be federated to help organize CIs and make the BMC Atrium CMDB more efficient.

Allen determines that the service and maintenance database stores information that is related to CIs in the BMC Atrium CMDB, and makes that data available using the retrieval method of federation. The federated data is then available to be viewed from within the BMC Atrium CMDB through Atrium Explorer.

Allen completes the following tasks to enable BMC Atrium CMDB to display the federated service and maintenance data on the Microsoft SQL Server database:
