Currently if you discover Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with BMC Discovery 24.1 (13.2), scan times are longer compared with previous versions of BMC Discovery. BMC Software is working with Oracle to resolve this problem. If you have a lot of services running in OCI, we recommend that you do not use BMC Discovery 24.1 (13.2) in production at this time.

Define queries using a visual representation of the nodes and relationships

The visual query builder provides an intuitive way to create complex queries by using a visual representation of the nodes and relationships, without needing to use the query language. You can filter using combinations of attributes, focus the results on any of the nodes, and specify columns from any of the related nodes to show in the results.

The following screenshots show a simple example query and the results of running that query.

See Using the visual query builder for more information.

Automatically synchronize services between BMC Helix CMDB and BMC Discovery

If you model Applications in BMC Discovery and create Business Service CIs in BMC Helix CMDB, you can sync the services back into BMC Discovery. When configuring the sync, you can select an input dataset ID, the interval after which the sync should be updated, and insert a TPL mapping table to identify which BMC Helix CMDB attributes are exposed in BMC Discovery apart from the out-of-the-box ones (Name, ShortDescription, MarketVersion, Version, and Model). These options enable you to set up seamless and continuous work of BMC Helix CMDB sync. 

The following image shows the sync configuration settings:
