Starting from TKU February 2020 discovery of the physical topology (infrastructure) of the Cisco ACI solution is supported.
Cisco ACI physical topology discovery feature is only supported starting from BMC Discovery 11.3 version.
Pattern triggers on Cisco APIC controller Network Device node, then runs REST calls against /api/node/class/topSystem class in APIC API to get info about ACI nodes (APICs, leafs and spines).
Using this info pattern do the following:
Below are some example of the data in Discovery.
NetworkDevice nodes are mapped into BMC_ComputerSystem class.
APIC and Pod Clusters are mapped to BMC_Cluster class.
Management relationships between clusters are mapped as BMC_Dependency.
For more information about the CDM mapping please visit this page: https://docs.bmc.com/docs/discovery/113/default-cdm-mapping-788111913.html.
Below is example of the Cisco ACI data in the CMDB.
As it was mentioned before, only infrastructure (topology) part is currently supported.
Logical (application) part is not supported yet (hence no tenants, application profiles, EPGs, etc.).
We encourage our customers to provide us with the requirements for the logical part.
