Changes to the BMC Atrium CMDB for BMC Remedy ITSM 8.0

Version 8.0 of BMC Remedy IT Service Management (BMC Remedy ITSM) has important changes for how BMC Remedy ITSM stores the attributes that it uses to describe configuration items (CIs).

Earlier versions of BMC Remedy ITSM extended the BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (BMC Atrium CMDB) data model by adding a number of attributes that were used to track Asset Management CI data. These attributes included information about costs, and foundational data such as company and location. BMC Atrium CMDB also included lifecycle information. Lifecycle information, however, is not discovered and you do not need to reconcile it across multiple sources. As a result, the system does not need to store lifecycle information in multiple BMC Atrium CMDB data sets.

For this reason, and because some customers need to maintain separate permissions on these attributes, the 8.0 release of BMC Remedy ITSM introduces a new data model for the Lifecycle data.

Standard integration points and application forms have been redesigned to accommodate the updates, so most customers are not directly affected by this change. However, you should read this topic to ensure that you understand how the change might have an impact on your environment.


If you have customized functions or integrations that use lifecycle data, read this section.
