UCMDB enrichment rule 1 functional group to many Nodes



I would like to start by mentioning that I have seen this issue in various posts; however, they all seem to be related to older version of ucmdb (8, 9). We are using UCMDB version 10.11.


The requirement I have is to map FunctionalGroups to their corresponding owner nodes. Currently, the thought is that this will be a one to man relationship.  The steps I have taken to create this automatic relationship is as follows:


1) Load Enrichment Manager

2) In Query Mode: Add CI type Unix (no attributes)

3) In Query Mode: Add CI type FunctionalGroup

4) Add attribute condition for FunctionalGroup where name="Linux Support" (predefined functional group)


As soon as I try to save the query with an attribute condition I recieve the following error: "Pattern graph contains separate graphs which are note allowed in selected pattern group". 


This functionality seems as though it should exist. An alternate method I have read is to run an enrichment that populates a node attribute with the same name as the functionalGroup name and then run a seperate enrichment rule to create a virtual join relationship using the new field as a reconciliation key. I would prefer to avoid this method as it involves an extra step. Does anyone else have any experience using unique queries for 2 CIT and then creating a relationship to bind the two?


Thank you,


Vlaho Djurkovic

Re: UCMDB enrichment rule 1 functional group to many Nodes

Enrichment couldn't help in the case when there is no any logical connections between CIs that could be represented as condition on a TQL.

One of the possible ways to go i sto use Pattern Based Models.

The FunctionalGroups will be a models when CIs representing  UNIX boxes will be connected elements. 


BTW, what you see is expected behaviour with the enrichment.
