Getting Started with Universal CMDB Browser 11.0
The UCMDB Browser is a lightweight web-based client used to access UCMDB data.
The UCMDB Browser provides a simple and intuitive search for Configuration Items (CIs) in the UCMDB and displays important data in the context of the selected CI. It is an ideal tool for providing quick access to specific CI information.
The UCMDB Browser also enables users to model services using automated service modeling and assisted modeling technologies. As part of its capabilities the UCMDB Browser let users report on any data from the UCMDB, thus making it the primary tool for users to interact with UCMDB and federated data.
For a CI that is found as a result of a search query, relevant data is presented and gathered into information widgets (for example, Properties, Environment, and Impact Simulation widgets). Data is presented by default in a CI overview mode, with the option to view more comprehensive data in a widget details mode.
The Browser has a lightweight UI that ensures simple access to UCMDB information. No user administration is required (this is handled by UCMDB), and no upgrades are needed when updating to a newer version. The Browser has backward compatibility and works with different versions of the UCMDB server by using only the UCMDB SDK.
The UCMDB Browser is HTML-based that runs on standard web browsers and has iPad tablet support. See the Support Matrix section of the Universal CMDB Browser Help for specific versions.
The UCMDB Browser is targeted for the following customers:
- Non-UCMDB administrators, such as business owners or subject matter experts.
- Mobile device users, such as tablet users, wishing to take advantage of mobility and the more intuitive UI found on those devices.
- UCMDB administrators, who need quick CI access.
The Micro Focus Configuration Management System (CMS) 10 Documentation Library provides download links for all Universal CMDB documents of 10.xx releases and all UD Content Pack documents for CP11 and later releases, available on the Software Support portal (SSO), including all CMS documents for the most recent releases.
