Exploring CI relationships
BMC Atrium Explorer displays a map of the relationships between the selected CI and related CIs. To view relationships at all levels across your environment, you can traverse this map from one CI to another. For example, the selected CI might be a computer system that is related to a printer. You might traverse the map to see how that printer is related to other computer systems. BMC Atrium Explorer shows the relationship between the computer system, printer, and other computer systems.
To explore CI relationships
- Open the Asset Management console.
- From the Configuration Items (CIs) table, select the CI, and click Explore CI.
The CI opens in the Explorer and its relationship with other CIs is displayed.
To view both the parents and children of a CI, right-click a CI and select Expand Both.
NoteIn large environments, clicking Expand Both may open a very huge number of CIs and the performance may depend on your browser capabilities.
