    BMC Discovery does not populate BMC_Patch or BMC_Packages OOTB.

     

    The reason is that patches and packages constitute a lot of data, and it will surely drag down the performance of your CMDB to sync so much data.

     

    But, if you want to do it anyway, attached are some custom syncmappings to accomplish the task.

     

    Please, as always, test this on a TEST system before moving to PROD.

     

    To use the pattern:

    1) Save PATCHES_AND_PACKAGES.zip file, attached, to your desktop

    2) from Manage->Knowledge, click Upload

        upload the PATCHES_AND_PACKAGES.zip file

    3) Now, to test, sync some Hosts with packages and patches.

        After the sync completes, verify the data in the CMDB
