The topics in this section describe the mapping for the BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping (BMC Atrium Discovery) formats.

BMC Atrium Discovery version 7.5 format

The import task maps the BMC Atrium Discovery version 7.5 database fields to the device record as follows:

Device field

BMC Atrium Discovery 7.5 field

Comments

Name

bmc_computersystem_r.aname

Must be a unique name. Up to 100 characters in length.

Hostname/IP Address

dim_ipaccesspoint.aname

Required for new devices. If snmpaddr is blank, uses ip_hostname field.

Device Type

dim_snmpdatasource_r.asysobjectid

Maps the OID to the device type by using the DeviceType.snmpOids file.

Category

dim_snmpdatasource_r.asysobjectid

Used to determine the category of the device.

BMC Atrium Discovery version 8.2 and later format

BMC Atrium Discovery 8.2 and later uses the URL-based web API to perform the import task, unlike earlier device imports.

Format the URL as shown in the following example (all on a single line). Enter this URL on the import page into the Source field in the File Access section.

https://ADDM _SERVER/ui/api/XmlApi?query=search NetworkDevice show name,#InferredElement:Inference:Associate:DiscoveryAccess.endpoint, sysobjectid&username=ADDM_USERNAME&password=ADDM_PASSWORD

Substitute the following values in the query URL:

Variable

Value to subsitute

ADDM_SERVER

Host name or IP address of the BMC Atrium Discovery server

ADDM_USERNAME

User name that is registered on the BMC Atrium Discovery server

ADDM_PASSWORD

Note

The BMC Network Automation application server automatically performs URL encoding on any blank spaces or other special characters.

The query returns the following values:
