Creating a static application model

BMC Atrium Discovery enables you to define a simple application by manual grouping the hosts and software instances in a specific way provided below.

Before you begin

Static application modeling became available in the Technology Knowledge Update 2014-Aug-1. Ensure you have the latest Technology Knowledge Update uploaded and activated.

To create a static application model

  1. Open Applications from the top menu.
  2. In the Application Mapping area, create a group that starts with "StaticApp: ", in exactly that form.


    Do not create sub-groups, as they are not supported in a static application model.

  3. Search for the Hosts and SoftwareInstances that are a part of the application you model and add them to the group you just created (in our example it is StaticApp:MySimpleApplication group).


During the CMDB sync, the static application model define this way causes the creation of a BMC_Application CI in BMC Atrium CMDB, named after the group.

For example, a group named “StaticApp: Example Application” results in a BMC_Application CI with name “Example Application”.
