Calculated Relationships Overview

A calculated relationship represents the connection between two CIs, whose path meets the conditions defined for the triplets on which it is based in the CI Type Manager. For details on how to define triplets, see Triplets Page.

You can use calculated relationships to create TQL queries just like any other relationship in the CI Type model. This enables you to base Enrichment rules, Impact rules, and views on calculated relationships.

The direction of the calculated relationship is not always the same direction as the physical relationship taken from the CI Type model. There can be one or more relationships between two CIs, depending on the way the triplets, on which the calculated relationship is based, are defined.
