Validating the extension file

After you convert the extension file, you validate the extension file. Perform this step before installing extensions or after generating an extension file to find the following errors:

  • The file has no unmatched XML tags, such as a missing </stage> tag.
  • The file does not have more than one stage group with the same name.
  • The extension files exist with the proper command arguments for each.

Before you begin

You must have an XML extension file and the directories with the exported class and attribute definitions.

To validate the extension file

  1. Log in to the computer where BMC CMDB is installed.

  2. Navigate to the directory where BMC Atrium Core is installed.
    This is the directory identified by the environment variable ATRIUMCORE_HOME.
  3. Run the Maintenance Tool to access the Extension Loader from the directory 
    1. Microsoft Windows
      From <bmcInstallDir>\BMC Software\AtriumCore\atriumcore, double-click AtriumCoreMaintenanceTool.cmd.
    2. UNIX
      Navigate to your installation directory and run ./
  4. From the Configuration tab, select the Validate Extensions XML File tab.
  5. Click Browse to locate and select the XML file with the extension data.
  6. Click Next, and then click Validate.
    A validation summary indicates if the validation succeeded or failed, including a brief reason for the failure, such as The structure of the XML is not proper. Please ensure tags are closed properly.
  7. For a failure, click View Log to find details.
    1. In the atriumcore_configuration_log.txt window, sort by Severity.
    2. Look for SEVERE messages highlighted in red.
    3. Select a message to display the details at the bottom of the window.
  8. Click Done to return to the initial validation view.
