CMDB Import

Good morning,

 

In the pdf file "What is new MEGA 2009 SP5 R7", this new tool is describe to import object from CMDB. Objetcs must be described in an XML file whose structure complies with the format defined by the XSD file supplied by MEGA.

 The MEGA schema allows importing configuration items from different CMDB tools (BMC, HP, etc.) and thus avoiding discrepancies between versions.

Ok, but i don't find where it's possible to define this format in MEGA.

Can you help me?

Thanks you.

Re: CMDB Import

I' have another question about this.

In the pdf, there is some informations about the import format, and an example at the end of the doc.

 

We can see 4 elements describe in the XML example  : cmdb, types, configurationitems and compositions.

To use a XML file, it's obligatory to avec this 4 elements in the file or only few is necessary to use the import function?

 

Thanks you.

--> The XML file shoud at least contain the descriptionof

  • A cmdb
  • A configuration item

However if the description of a configuration item refers to a type (typeid), this type must be declared

<ci id="a" cmdbid="a1" name="my server 1" typeid="a123" status="active"
delete="yes">

 

Note that a licence MEGA CMDB Import is required
