uCMDB 10.22 - AM Pushback links deleting records


I am trying to get the uCDMB to AM Pushback in the AMGenericAdapter to not do anything to the Network Card records associated with all Portfolio records in Asset Manager. The file is AM Node Push.xml.

This pushback is something new we are trying to implement, so we want to only push over certain data. The Network Card records already have data in them with both the out-of-box and custom fields.

                <for-each-source-entity count-index="i" source-entities="Root.Interface">
                    <target_entity name="NetworkCards">
                        <variable datatype="STRING" name="ucmdbId" value="Root.Interface[i]['cmdb_id']"/>
                        <variable datatype="STRING" name="globalId" value="Root.Interface[i]['global_id']"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="INTEGER" name="lTenantId" ignore-on-null="true" is-valid="AMPush.ENABLE_PUSH_MT" value="vTenantId"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="GlobalId" ignore-on-null="true" is-valid="AMPush.useGlobalId()" value="globalId"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="BOOLEAN" name="bDHCPEnabled" value="AMPush.fIsContainList(Root.Interface[i].ip_address_inter*.getAt('ip_address_property'), 'dhcp')"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="DefaultGateway" value="Root['default_gateway_ip_address']"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="Description" value="AMPush.getInterfaceDescription(Root.Interface[i]['interface_description'], AMPush.UNKNOWN)"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="DNSSuffixes" value="AMPush.getDNSSuffix(Root.Interface[i].ip_address_inter)"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="INTEGER" name="lSeq" value="Root.Interface[i]['interface_index']"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="PhysAddress" value="AMPush.getFirstNotEmpty(Root.Interface[i]['mac_address'],Root.Interface[i]['interface_name'])"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="SubnetMask" value="AMPush.getIpV4SubnetMask(Root.Interface[i].ip_address_inter)"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="IPv6Address" value="AMPush.getFirstIpV6Address(Root.Interface[i].ip_address_inter)"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="IPv6SubnetPrefix" value="AMPush.getIpV6SubnetMask(Root.Interface[i].ip_address_inter)"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="TcpIpAddress" value="AMPush.getFirstIpV4Address(Root.Interface[i].ip_address_inter)"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="Type" value="AMPush.getEnumValueByKey(ClassModel,Root.Interface[i]['interface_type'],'interfaceindex_type_enum')"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="PrimaryWINS" value="Root.Interface[i]['primary_wins']"/>
                        <target_mapping datatype="STRING" name="SecondaryWINS" value="Root.Interface[i]['secondary_wins']"/>

If this entry is kept, then the pushback will end up deleting all Network Cards associated to the Portfolio record, then create new Network Card records. This obviously is not good for the data in the custom fields.


If this entry is removed, then the pushback will end up deleting all Network Cards associated to the Portfolio record.

My goal here is to prevent the current Network Card records from being touched at all. I couldn't find what I need in the documents. Whatever assistance provided is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

The am-push-config.xml governs the relationship(s) and behaviors, the mapping files (like "AM Node Push") are only concerned with the data mapping.
