BMC Atrium Explorer filters
BMC Atrium Explorer filters limit the instances that are visible in the current view. Use the Filters section of the navigation pane to create and modify these filters.
The following figure shows the filter options available in the Filter dialog box.
BMC Atrium Explorer filters differ in concept from BMC Remedy AR System filters. For more information about BMC Remedy AR System filters, see Filters.
When you create a filter, you select configuration item (CI) and relationship classes, and then you specify whether the instances for those classes are included or excluded from the current view. If you expand a CI, any CIs that are filtered in the view are not displayed.
You can include or exclude the following base classes and their subclasses:
- Base Element
- All Related
But you can only run one filter at a time.
When you select Show the selected classes, only instances in the Selected Classes pane are displayed. When you select Hide the selected classes, only classes in the Selected Classes pane are hidden. For example, you can build a filter that includes instances of the
BMC_SoftwareServer CI classes, and also includes instances of the
BMC_Component relationship class. This filter would not allow instances of other CI and relationship classes to be displayed.
You can also specify whether the filter excludes instances that are marked for deletion.
Each relationship level shown in BMC Atrium Explorer consists of a relationship and a CI. If both instances meet the criteria of the currently selected filter, both are shown. If either instance does not meet the filter criteria, neither are shown. To view only impact relationships between CIs, right-click in the BMC Atrium Explorer display pane and then select View as Impact Model. A read-only topology view of the Impact Model appears.
