Illustrative data model diagram changes

In the diagrams, boxes illustrate how CIs in your environment should be mapped to the CDM, or how to extend the CDM to create your own data model. Lines are used to represent the type and direction of the relationship. Colors are used in the diagrams to help you easily distinguish at a glance which relationship type is recommended to model an example business object. Additionally, the source and destination of each relationship are represented by the letters S and D, respectively.

In BMC Atrium CMDB 8.0, the representation of relationships in the illustrative diagrams has changed:

  • All relationship lines use the following color-coded solid arrows:
    • BMC_Dependency relationships use solid red arrows.
    • BMC_Component relationships use solid green arrows.
    • BMC_Collection relationships use black arrows.
  • Arrow directionality is from Source to Destination.

The relationships in the diagrams apply the conventions used by Atrium Explorer in the BMC Atrium CMDB UI.


For the 8.0 release, the relationship arrows point from Source to Destination. This is the opposite from previous releases.
