Exploring CI relationships

BMC Atrium Explorer shows a map of the relationships between the selected CI and related CIs. To view relationships at all levels throughout 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

  1. Open the Asset Management console.
  2. From the Configuration Items (CIs) table, select the CI, and click Explore CI
    After a few seconds, BMC Atrium Explorer opens, displaying the selected CI. Other related CIs might be displayed, depending on the CI types and relationships.
