Viewing filtered CIs that are part of a virtual relationship in a popup
As shown in the following figure, the virtual relationship line between the two configuration items (CIs) shows that one or more intermediate CIs are removed from the view by a filter. A popup window lets you view filtered CIs that are part of a virtual relationship.
Before you begin
Select a filter that hides a CI in the view. In the following figure, a filter hides the
BMC_Chassis CI and produces a virtual relationship.

The hidden CIs in this popup are display-only. Because the CIs already exist in the view — they are merely hidden by a filter — you cannot add them to the view.
