CMDBQueryByPath function overview

You can use the CMDBQueryByPath function to query BMC Atrium CMDB for CI and relationship information. Use this function when you know the exact relationship path to follow. For example, to view all computer systems in the Payroll division, you could use CMDBQueryByPath to query from BMC_ComputerSystem through a BMC_MemberOfCollection relationship to BMC_Organization.

Structure of the CMDBQueryByPath function

Unlike the CMDBGraphQuery function, which requires the graph adjacency list to traverse relationships, the CMDBQueryByPath function takes each qualification as a structure and dynamically generates the query. The following figure illustrates the structure of the CMDBQueryByPath function and its parameters.
