Embedding BMC Atrium Core widgets in BMC Remedy AR System applications

You can embed BMC Atrium Core widgets in a BMC Remedy AR System form.

To embed a BMC Atrium Core widget in a BMC Remedy AR System form

  1. In BMC Remedy Developer Studio, open the form in which you want to embed the widget.
  2. Right-click the form, and select Create a new Field > Data Visualization.
  3. Select the Data Visualization field.
  4. In the Properties tab, expand Database, and specify a name for the Data Visualization field in the Name text box.
  5. In the Properties tab, set the following Display properties:
    • From the Module Type list, select AtriumWidget.

      Note

      The AtriumWidget value in the Module type list does not appear if you have not installed BMC Atrium CMDB.

    • From the Definition list, select the Atrium Query or BMC Atrium Explorer.
    • From the Server list, select the server hosting the widget.
  6. On the Database tab, specify a name for the Data Visualization field in the Name text box.
  7. Create an active link that executes when the Data Visualization field is initialized and specify the following details for the active link:
    • On the Basic tab:
      • Specify a name for the active link.
      • From the Form Name list, select the form name.
    • On the If Action tab:
      • From the New Action list, select Set Fields
      • From the Read Value for Field From list, select the form name on which the data visualization field is placed.
      • From the Name list, select the name of the Data Visualization field you created.
      • In the Value field, set the required parameters for launching the widget.
        BMC Atrium Explorer:
        (((((((( "namespace=" + $Namespace$) + ",classname=") + $Class Name$) + ",datasetid=") + $Dataset ID$) + ",instanceid=") + $CI ID$) + ",filtername=") + "Components and Dependencies"
        Atrium Query:
        (( "resultsetLocation=" + $Resultset Location$) + ",datasetid=") + $Dataset ID$

        In the examples, the field names, such as $Namespace$ and $Class Name$ are based on the field names of a form. You must provide these field names as you have specified in your form. You might also specify string values as shown in the example.

        Note

        The namespace, classname, datasetid, instanceid, and filtername parameters are BMC Atrium Explorer-defined keywords.

  8. Click Add Action to save the settings for the action.
  9. Click Save to save the active link.

Any HTTP response from the AtriumWidget plugin does not issue any browser cache directives like the other Data Visualization Module (DVM)
