Pattern node

The Pattern node is the node that represents an individual pattern, defined in the Pattern Language. For each pattern in a TPL file there is a Pattern node which contains meta-data about the pattern, such as its name, description and the products that it is responsible for identifying.

Patterns have relationships to all of the nodes that they are responsible for maintaining so that the nodes can be related back to where they originated. See Configipedia for more information about BMC Discovery patterns.
