NNMi uCMDB/OBM Toplogy integration should draw a relationship between IP address and Interface CIs

Currently, other discovery jobs in uCMDB draw a relationship between the CIs which helps tells the user which IP address is associated with an interface. Currently, there is no way to tell with doing an import from NNMi.

Thanks for submitting the idea. However, it is not clear to us as what exactly is missing, and you would like to have as a use case. It would help if you can elaborate it a bit more with some example.

In the the pics below you from uCMDB you will see a containment relationship between the interface ci and the ipaddress ci. This allows you to know what IP address is configured on an interface. However, that cotainment relationship is missing when those CIs are imported from NNMi via the topology integration.

For the relationship between IPAddress and Interface missing in uCMDB for network device, in NNMi this relationship is present, however it is not being synced to uCMDB. This is a pre-requiste to push a IP address in ServiceNow. ServiceNow doesnt accept a IP without interface relationship.

ER request has been raised for the same. SD02574085

Adding to this, for network devices, in NNMi we have the primary ip address. Same is not being synced to uCMDB into primary ip address field. This will help clients to know the primary ip address of the network device.
