The system taxonomy defines all kinds of data objects in the system and the relationships between them. The BMC Atrium Discovery Administrator can examine all of these objects, including their attributes, roles and relationships.
None of this information can be changed from the BMC Atrium Discovery user interface.
You can download the base taxonomy in XML format. To do this, right-click on the appropriate link and select Save Target As....
The Files tab shows the taxonomy files that are installed on the appliance.
Further details of the data model can be found in the BMC Atrium Discovery taxonomy. To view the taxonomy, click the View Taxonomy icon on the Administration page of the BMC Atrium Discovery UI. A link to the current, full-size version of the diagrams below is also available in the online documentation.
The relationships displayed in the taxonomy are not exhaustive. That is, all possible relationships are not displayed in the taxonomy.
For example, the following containment relationships are valid:
The diagrams below shows the BMC Atrium Discovery Default Data Model with its different nodes, attributes and relationships between the different parts of BMC Atrium Discovery. It is split across 3 diagrams.

The PNG images are static and represent the latest taxonomy. They do not reflect any on-site changes that may have been made to the taxonomy on your appliance.
Taxonomy definitions are configured using xml files which are held in the following directories:
The directories are parsed in the order given (installed before custom), and the files contained in these directories are parsed in alphabetical order, with numbers before letters. This order is important as later definitions for the taxonomy override those loaded earlier.
The standard base taxonomy file is contained in
To add additional details to a node, we recommend using a detail node rather than extending the taxonomy. For more information, see Detail node.
