You create service models to visualize the impact an event has on a business service. The Publishing Server application that publishes a service model to the TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server Server Cell. The Publishing Server receives notification from Atrium CMDB about changes made to service models in the BMC Impact Model Designer and performs the following functions:
- Triggers an automated publication of the Infrastructure Management data from the Atrium CMDB to cells when any reconciliation job terminates on Atrium CMDB.
- Publishes the Atrium CMDB asset service model data to cells on demand.
- Publishes data from a BAROC source file to cells on demand.
- Exports the class definitions from the Atrium CMDB on demand to BAROC files that are ready for distribution to the cells
The following diagram illustrates the publication workflow showing the various Atrium CMDB and Infrastructure Management components and how they interact.
