To select CI types to transfer from a templates list
The Integration Job Builder wizard offers a desktop, server, application, discovery, and virtual machine template. Each available template groups together the appropriate CIs and relationships. For example, the virtual machine template groups all the CIs that make up that virtual machine. If you select this template, the wizard automatically moves all related CIs to the Selected CI Types area.
The templates are installed as part of the BMC Atrium CMDB installation and not the Atrium Integrator server installation. If the templates are not displayed in the Integration Job Builder wizard, you must verify that they have been successfully installed on the BMC Atrium CMDB server that you have specified as the target source. To verify, check the NGIE:BSM template.
You can modify the templates that are available on the CI Type Selection Page of the Integration Job Builder wizard. For more information, see Modifying templates.
