[i-doit] Übersichtlichkeit im CMDB Explorer herstellen
CMDB Explorer is your first port of call when it comes to taking a bird's eye view; starting from the selected object, all relationships to other objects are displayed. But it can of course happen that not all information listed there is of interested, and you need a more limited view. i-doit offers you the option of masking object types, relationships, etc. which you do not need with profiles and filters and storing a profile to help you do so.
However, you only want a view of the locations that exist within the building. To do this, you create a new filter which only displays "location" objects. Then you create a new CMDB Explorer profile (it makes sense to copy and edit the default profile). In the profile, you set the filter you just created as the filter under "Defaults". In addition, you add the fields to be displayed in the "Object Information" tab.
This is a simple example of how you can customise the view in i-doit to suit your needs. In the filter definition, you can add further restrictions for relationship types and weightings, the depth in terms of levels or the CMDB status. Try it out and see for yourself.
