BSM Support Tip: Available CI Types on Downtime Wizard
Currently Downtime Wizard allows to select the following CI Types:
• Running software
• Business application
• CI collection
• Infrastructure service
• Business service
Downtimes are designed for predefined set of CI types only, because the rules of propagation downtime differs from type to type (for example, DT on Application affects only Application, DT on Node affects all running SW on the node).
Recently a request to include these two CIT:
• BusinessElement (specifically BusinessActivity)
• Application Resource
ER can be followed on: https://softwaresupport.hpe.com/group/softwaresupport/search-result/-/facetsearch/document/LID/QCCR1I99646
If any other predefined CIT that is not mentioned above need to be selected to create a Downtime, an Enhancement Request needs to be made.
Re: BSM Support Tip: Available CI Types on Downtime Wizard
they are not supported OOTB. you can either follow the guide on how to add more CITs or leverage the modeling approach, which is the preffered option of course, in which your monitors will report their "monitored CI" and that CI will receive the downtime, which will then propagate to all the SiS monitors associated with it.
