Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

The configuration item (CI) model in the configuration management database can be very large, holding thousands of CIs. A view enables you to build a subset of the overall CI model, containing only those CIs relating to a specific area of interest. You can define your own views to display only the information that is relevant to your organization's business needs.
Views for OMi help you to limit the CIs displayed in the View Explorer. OMi filters the contents of the Event Browser in the Event Perspective and the Health Perspective according to the selected view.
Administrators can also configure users and groups so that you can see only the events filtered by views associated with that user or group. You can also allow users or groups to deselect the selected view and display all events. For details, see How to Grant Permissions on Views in Roles.
For more information, see Filtering by Views and View-Based Authorization.
To configure and modify views, use the Modeling Studio:
Administration > RTSM Administration > Modeling > Modeling Studio
Alternatively, click Modeling Studio.
You can also modify existing views to change, increase, or decrease the amount and type of information displayed. You can exchange the views between instances of OMi using the Import and Export features of the Content Packs manager.
OMi Management Packs provide views that group configuration items into sets that help you to perform your tasks more efficiently.
A view displays a subset of the overall ConfigurationItem model, for example, only those CIs that relate to a specific area of interest. Selecting a view enables you to refine both the type and the amount of information displayed, for example, in the CI Tree or the Health Top View pane.
You can map views to configuration item types. The mapped views appear in the Selected Views list displayed in the Health Top View pane of the Health Perspective tab. For more information about the contents of Health Top View and the Selected Views list, see Health Top View Component.
You can exchange the view mappings that you configure between instances of OMi using the Import and Export features of the Content Packs manager.
Note Only users with the appropriate access permissions can use the Administration features.
Certain views defined in the RTSM are not available by default in OMi, because these applications filter for a view bundle named service health. To display a view that is not visible in OMi, open the view in RTSM administration or in the Service Health View Builder, and assign the view to the service health bundle. For details on bundles, see the
