Filtering Discovery Results

You can filter results sent by the Probe to the Universal CMDB server. You would probably need to filter irrelevant data regularly during production runs and specifically when you are testing a limited environment.

There are two levels of filtering:

The order of filtering is as follows:

  1. During a discovery run, the Data Flow Probe first searches for an adapter filter and applies the filter to the results of the run.
  2. If there are no adapter filters, Universal Discovery searches for a global filter and applies that filter to the results.
  3. If no filters are found, all results are sent to the UCMDB Server.
