Directory Listing Lifecycle

The following section describes the scenarios in which a Directory Listing node is created or destroyed. DDD nodes are never updated.

Creation

Whenever BMC Discovery scans an IP address, a Discovery Access node is created. A directory listing can be obtained using the discovery.listDirectory function. A Directory Listing node is created for the listing.
