Working with CIs and relationships

CIs can be discovered by a discovery tool or manually entered. In either situation, the CIs are likely to be put into one of the following datasets in the BMC CMDB:

  • BMC Asset — The default production dataset
  • BMC.ASSET.SANDBOX — The default sandbox dataset. For information about the sandbox dataset, see Using a sandbox dataset for CI data.
  • BMC Configuration Import — Data from BMC Configuration Automation for Clients
  • BMC.SIM — Data that is modeled in BMC Service Impact Manager
  • BMC.ADDM — Data from BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping
  • Third-party dataset — Other datasets from third parties


To see the BMC.ADDM dataset in the Asset Management console, you must have AR System administrator permissions.
