Filter by Class/Asset Type in CDMB Explorer

Currently, the CMDB explorer shows all CIs connected to a service or an application, whether directly or indirectly. This creates a diagram (see below) which is impossible to navigate, and does not support specific business cases like planning an OS upgrade across all servers (and only servers) related to the HR portal or identifying the applications (and just applications) that are served by a specific NLB.

 

The diagram gets even more difficult to navigate when using the Discovery -> RF Sync, as Discovery populates the RF CMDB with many CIs and relationships that are only relevant to specific use cases.

 

An ability to filter the Explorer diagram by Class or Asset type as well as CI Attributes, will dramatically improve the Explorer UX, and will drive BMC Discovery adoption.
