Define different identification rule

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

Under BusinessElement I add a new CIT "CustomCI" which inerite attributes from parent but where I want to define a new identification rule where "name" attribute" is not a key.

 

I try different solution, also by settings Key Attributes instead of Idenficiation rule, but the "name" is always required when I try to add a new instance for CustomCI.

 

It's like what ever I do, CustomCI inerite from BusinessElement the identification rule.

 

Is there a bug or a missing information like "we cannot define different key for child when parent have identification rule" ?

 

DataModel :

BusinessElement

      |-> CustomCI

 

Regards,

Steve

Hi,

When you are recreating it, there is a pane that displays all the attributes (before you finish and the new CIT is created). There you should have the option to uncheck it(and the option should not be grayed out).

Hi Steve,

What you are suggesting should not be the case.
So there should be something else that is missconfigured.

1. How do you create new CIs ? In the IT Universe Manager ?
2. Do you have any qualifiers in this CI Type ?

What is the version of uCMDB/Cup/ContentPack?

Hi Nick,

 

1. yes I create the new CIs using ITU.

When I select CustomCI, I saw a red star in front of "Name". And if I set only attributes defined in indentification rule, it requires Name attributes too.

 

Same thing with identification by attribute key.

 

2. No qualifier defined.

 

UCMDB Version : 10.01 CUP4 with CP 12

 

Regards,

Steve

Hi,

A red star means it's required attribute.
You can open the attribute tab for this CI Type and edit the name attribute.
On the top of the Edit Attribute Pane you should have Advanced.
Go there and if I am correct you should see the "Required" is checked. Uncheck it and try again. If you cannot uncheck it try re-creating the CI Type and uncheck it from there.

Let me know if it works.

Regards,
Nick

In advance Pane, Mandatory option is checked and greyed. So I cannot change it.

 

I have deleted and recreated it with same issue.

 

I found that on BusinessElement CIT, this option is checked too but I can uncheck it.

 

When I do that I have a warning : "You have deleted inherited qualifier [INDEX]". So I rollback because I'm on production environment.

 

Do you known what does it means ??

HI,

 

thanks that's works.

 

Question : why if an identifcation rule is defined on BusinessElement (in OOTB), also attribute Name is checked to be mandatory ?

Hi Steve,

I am glad it works.

It doesn't make any sense in that example.
However in the company we have 10.11 with Content Pack 14 and the Name is not mandatory for BusinessElement. I guess they changed it.

Nick
