An integration of Population type copies data from an external data repository into the CMDB, so that the CMDB now controls the data.

You use population in one of the following scenarios:

  • When you need to track changes made by the CMDB at the CI level.

  • When a remote repository is not reliable in terms of response time; for example, a network delay prohibits you from setting up run-time federation with the repository.

  • When a remote repository does not support federation capabilities (no appropriate adapter exists).
