UCMDB Tip: UCMDB Browser 4.0 has been released

Hello All,

 

UCMDB Browser 4.0 has been officially released on January 30th. The files are available for download on the UCMDB Browser HPLN space:

https://hpln.hp.com/node/9462/contentfiles

 

This release contains the following new features:
 
Automated Service Modeling
Automated Service Modeling provides the ability to automatically map the complexity of critical business services and business applications, starting from an entry point for the service (usually the URL of the service). You can use the UCMDB Browser to easily create a model of a particular service
(starting from the service’s URL) or enterprise application (leveraging existing out-of-the-box discovery content). You can select different entry points or model multiple applications that have already been discovered. The process is simplified and put in the control of the service owner. Service maps are automatically discovered and modeled, and provide:
• A service model that is maintenance-free, and appears in near real time.
• The ability to accurately discover the service in a top-down manner, and see the map update automatically.
• The ability to leverage existing integrations and infrastructure.
• The possibility to prioritize discovery problems in the context of a service.
• The ability to contact a UCMDB administrator in case of advanced discovery errors.
• Constant tracking of dynamic changes in a business service’s infrastructure.
• The capability to quickly identify the impact of changes to CIs in complex environments.
• The ability to define service border rules.    
Once you have created a service map, you can interact with it by showing or hiding layers of associated data (historical changes, incidents, problems, RFCs, compliance, servers, virtualization, networking, or storage topologies).
Note: The Automated Service Modeling feature is supported on UCMDB 10.20 and later versions.
 
Interface update.
The UCMDB Browser now has an improved user interface, focusing on simplicity and usability.
 
Other improvements.
• Added the Dependent Services widget, which presents all services that will have an impact on a selected CI if they fail, according to a specified impact severity level.
• Added a new Map component in the Environment, Impact Simulation, and Dynamic Widgets.
• Lightweight Modeling has been updated to Assisted Modeling, using the new Map component.

 

Kind regards,

Irina

Re: UCMDB Tip: UCMDB Browser 4.0 has been released

Hi, 

 

Currently my company is using uCMDB 10.01. 

 

Question 1 :

 

Can we customized the CI Overview layout, for example i just want to see properties & History pane. Others like Environment, Impact Simulation & Stakeholder remove from the CI Overview dashboard. 

 

Question 2 : 

 

Can we create a New CI manually by using Browser? Is that new release can able to support this features?

Re: UCMDB Tip: UCMDB Browser 4.0 has been released

We facing issue here :-

 

We trying to update the New release of uCMDB browser version 4.0 as per recommended steps below. After that we encounter the following errors : -

 

  1. Stuck at loading page and not able to open browser - Object doesn't support this action es5-shim.js Code 0

 

HP Universal CMDB Browser

Software Version: 4.0

 

 

Installation and Configuration Guide

Chapter 1: Installation

Universal CMDB Browser (4.0) Page 9 of 187

 

Install the UCMDB Browser on the Same Machine that

Runs the UCMDB Server

Note:

l The installation directory must not contain spaces, and can use only English letters (a-z), digits

(0-9), the hyphen sign ('-'), and the underscore sign (_).

l The UCMDB Browser should not be installed on the same machine that runs the UCMDB server if

you want the UCMDB Browser to work with multiple UCMDB Servers (as described in "Configure

Multiple UCMDB Servers" on page 30). Rather, you should install the UCMDB Browser on a

separate machine.

  1. Unzip the file ucmdb-browser-install-for-ucmdb-archive.zip to an accessible location.
  2. Copy the file ucmdb-browser.war to the UCMDB server in the folder %UCMDB-Server%deploy/.

Note: If the server is running, use a cut-and-paste operation to put the new WAR file in place,

rather than copy-and-paste. Using cut-and-paste copies the file instantly and causes the

server to deploy the full application (instead of possibly deploying an incomplete WAR file).

Note: %UCMDB-Server% is the UCMDB server root folder. For example:

C:\hp\UCMDB\UCMDBServer.

  1. Restart the UCMDB server.
  2. After restart, open the UCMDB Browser with the following URL:

http://server-name:8080/ucmdb-browser
