When you have a source of data other than BMC Atrium CMDB, you can send it to cells by using Direct Publish publishing. You provide a BAROC file that contains the data that is to be added, updated, or deleted in the cells. You run the CLI command pposter to publish the data from a Direct Publish environment. You can publish from multiple publishing environments.

Data that you send from a Direct Publish environment must be updated and deleted in the context of a Direct Publish environment. For example, if you create a component by publishing from the Direct Publish environment MySource, then the component can be updated or deleted only if it is published from the same Direct Publish environment.
