Creating a static application model

BMC 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

Ensure that you have the latest Technology Knowledge Update uploaded and activated. (Static application modeling became available in the Technology Knowledge Update 2014-Aug-1.)

To create a static application model

  1. From the top menu, open Model > Services & Applications.
  2. Click Create/Import.
  3. Click the Create Legacy CAM tab.
  4. In the Create group for mapping field, create a group that starts with "StaticApp: ", in exactly that form.


    Do not create subgroups; they are not supported in a static application model.

  5. Search for the hosts SoftwareInstances and LoadBalancerServices that are a part of the application you model, and add them to the group you just created.

    In our example, StaticApp:My Simple Application group.


    During the CMDB sync, the static application model defined this way causes the creation of a BMC_Application CI in BMC Helix CMDB, named after the group.

    • You have to sync the hosts that are included in the group for the BMC_Application CI to be created.
    • The static app model does not exist as a BAI in BMC Discovery; it only exists as a BMC_Application CI in the CMDB.
