Discovered Directory Entry node

A Discovered Directory Entry node stores information about an entry in a directory listing.

Discovered Directory Entry Lifecycle

The following section describes the scenarios in which a Discovered Directory Entry 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 Discovered Directory Entry node is created for each file in the listing.

Removal

A Discovered Directory Entry node is removed when the Discovery Access node which it is associated with has been destroyed through the Aging process.
