Configuring an Atrium Integrator job for a Load step
To import data from various sources, you must create an Atrium Integrator job for each Load step. These jobs provide the details that are required to find the source data store, transform the data using the specified rules, and store the data in the required target data store.
BMC Remedy AR System provides an Atrium Integrator adapter plug-in that enables you to create and run your own data transformations. For more information, see Atrium Integrator adapter for BMC Remedy AR System.
BMC provides out-of-the-box Atrium Integrator jobs, which can be configured.
To configure an Atrium Integrator job for a Load step
- In the Load Parameters panel in the Step (New) window, select the required Atrium Integrator job name from the following choices:

BMC Remedy AR System server user name
You only need to make this change once. If you modify AR_USER, the new value propagates to all the Load steps.
If you have selected either the Transactional_Asset or CI-CMDB Atrium Integrator job, BMC recommends that you keep BMC.ITSM.CI.DATA, which is the default, as the DATASETID variable to ensure that the data is reconciled correctly with the production dataset. You will need to highlight the DATASETID variable in the Variables table to display the DATSETID entry field.
Do not load data directly to the BMC.ASSET production dataset.
- Select either the name of the User's data spreadsheet (created using Spreadsheet Management) that will be attached to the Atrium Integrator job from the Spreadsheet drop-down list or click Add to browse locally and manually add the spreadsheet as an attachment.
This process will also pull in the attachments .zip file if one exists for the spreadsheet.
If you have attachment fields with data in your ARX files or Excel spreadsheets, you must add an attachment .zip file. To load spreadsheets with attachments:
- In the attachment columns in your spreadsheet, enter the following path for your files and save your changes: optionalSubFolderName\fileName
- Create a folder on your local hard drive.
If you are attaching files that have a shared file name you must put these in separate local sub-folders before zipping them. Your spreadsheets will need to reference these sub-folders.
- Put all of the files that you want to attach to the staging form record, and have identified in the attachment columns of your spreadsheet, in this folder. You can create sub-folders if required.
- Zip up your files and name the .zip file folderName.zip.
The file must be a .zip file. No other compression formats are supported.
When you export an ARX file, the attachment directory is automatically created and you can make a zip file by zipping up the directory.
If you remove a spreadsheet, by clicking Remove, you will also remove the attachments .zip file.
- To save the step, click Save.
After your Data Management job has a status of Built, and you choose to run the job, the Atrium Integrator job runs. When the job finishes running, the Load step is set to Completed.
