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
- Open Applications from the top menu.
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.
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”.
