Configuring query options in BMC Atrium Explorer

You can configure options that determine the default behavior of all queries.


If your query returns unexpected results, you might be using the wrong dataset. Check the Dataset option to make sure you are using the correct dataset.

To configure query options

  1. Open the Query list.
    The Query list can appear in various locations in BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (BMC Atrium CMDB) products, including the Find section of BMC Atrium Explorer and the Add CI dialog box of BMC Atrium Impact Simulator.
  2. In the Query list, click Options.
  3. In the Edit Query Options dialog box, configure the following options:
    • Dataset — The dataset against which queries are run.


      The selected dataset is not saved as part of query, but it allows you to preview the query results before saving the query.

    • Show Deleted Items — Whether instances that are marked for deletion are returned in query results.
    • Retrieve results up to — The maximum number of instances returned in query results. If the number is very large, BMC Atrium CMDB might still retrieve a smaller number of entries to optimize performance and reliability.
  4. Click OK.
