You can track modification on attributes (not relationships) by activating audit option on some classes and some attributes.
Be aware to not activate audit option on a lot of classes and attributes...
This activation is done by using Class Manager and modifying the CDM.
can you show me some example or exact things that I have to do..
I am not very familier with this console. we have this CMDB as 2.1 version and remedy as 7.1
Hi Avisekh, maybe this screen from BMC Atrium CMDB 7.6 can help you, probably you must acces by Remedy User tool. This audit option is under class manager, select class to audit, usually computer system, as above degrades the performance of Remedy, and active audit option, in this case just in "BMC.ASSET" dataset, then just select the attributes to audit save changes and that's all.
Hope this help.
Below is how this will look in CMDB 2.1
The form audit feature. You can use the query to limit to specific dates (i.e. December 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012).
The attribute audit option. This will control whether audit when that field changes or ANY field changes.
For a full discussion on working with Audit see BMC Action Request System Form and Application Objects Guide.
Thanks for reply..but I am using CMDB 2.1 ....though we are in a planning to upgrade that one..
Thatnks for ther information you provided..but when I am trying to select the audit option tab, I am not able change any option in that field. it is showing as greyed out..
I am having administarion permission to ar system..
can you please help me out in this regard??
Please check if the attribute you are trying to enable audit option is inherited from its parent class.
Audit option at attribute level can be enabled on the attribute belongs specifically to a class.
Hope this helps.
See abhilasha's comment - that is why you can't modify. View the attribute through the BaseElement class and you should be able to set the audit feature. Be aware this will propogate auditing for all child CIs of BaseElement (which is really all CIs). If there is a particular class you are focusing on, you may wish to add a query to the audit along the lines of 'ClassID'="BMC_ComputerSystem" or some such.
