The CMDB environment is our environment where you can store 'plain' nodes. Think of it as a list of nodes without dependencies are relations to other devices. Therefore different from the YCE nodes which are part of a design and could have relations with other devices in the network.
Devices can be added in different ways, including the front-end and service-types.
When a node is selected in the CMDB overview, its details are listed below the grid and can be edited.
For each CMDB node a number of attributes can be filled. These values can be used in templates and logic. Below is a list of attributes with a description:
Vendor_type and Domain, should be filled to match an existing value in order to schedule jobs. Other vales can be filled to be administratively complete, with the consequence of not being able to send basic command jobs.
The form supports adding a new CMDB node. Click on the “New” button for this. This takes you to a modal where you can enter the hostname of the node you want to add. Click then on 'OK' and any additional details can be entered in the form that subsequently appears.
CMDB nodes can be deleted by clicking on a node in the grid and then clicking on the 'Delete' button.
You can search through the list of nodes by clicking on the 'Search' button. The headers of the grids are then expanded with a search field which search through all values in their respective columns. The searches are persistent, so if you change pages they still remain active. To show all nodes again, remove the search query in all columns, or click on the 'x' in the field.
