Integration Point node

An Integration Point is a definition of how BMC Discovery should connect to and interact with an external data source.

There are two types of IntegrationPoint nodes, they are distinguished by the value of the is_dynamic attribute.

  • If is_dynamic is false then the node represents an Integration Point entity. These are created through a pattern's definitions block whose type is sql_integration. These support querying SQL databases at well-known locations, for example asset databases.
  • If is_dynamic is true then the node represents a Software Credential Group entitiy. These are created through a pattern's definitions block whose type is sql_discovery. These support querying SQL databases as they are discovered throughout the estate.

Integration Point Lifecycle

The following section describes the scenarios in which an Integration Point is created, updated or destroyed.

Creation/update

The creation and update of Integration Point nodes is done manually by the User using the BMC Discovery UI, or as a result of uploading pattern modules containing appropriate definitions blocks. For more information, see Discovering database content.

Removal

Integration Points are removed manually by the user. When an Integration Point is destroyed its child SQL Integration Connection and SQL Integration Query nodes are also destroyed.
