For example I'd like to create a page/tab on config item, on that tab I'd like to pull various fields from seperate CI's back into it to display the 'entire picture' so to speak.
example: Server1 (CI) tab: network interfaces (considering each interface is treated as its own seperate CI) I would still like to be able to pull the various fields needed from the network interface CI and display them on the Server1 CI form.
Hi Mark, Thanks for the fast response. Understood as far as relations to the ci go, looking for a way to display info in an embedded table in order to speed up data retrieval rather than going into each related ci individually...
There might be a way to use the webAPI to retrieve the information but you will need some common link between the CI's.
Exploring the relationships a little more if the relations are set up (and you may do this anyway as part of Config Management) you could set up a system (explorer)view with leaves. You would have to drill down to the CI in question in the explorer pane (left hand side) and have the data show in one of the leaves. Still not ideal but "an" option.
