Useful Related Lists in CI Forms
By default, the forms that display manageable configuration items (CI) - computers, printers, network gear, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), and power distribution units (PDU) - provide a number of related lists for the form. The following related lists are common to all forms for manageable CIs.
- Network Adapters
- CI IPs
- DNS Names for CIs
The IP version information appears in all IP address related lists and forms.
|Note: Since all paths here click into the IP Address to DNS Names list that associates an IP address with a DNS name, this part of the common flow was not added to the tree structure.|
2 Example: Linux Server sanops02

3 Discovery Source
A table called Source [sys_object_source], available in the Aspen release, stores information identifying the source of a Discovery (ServiceNow or another product), the ID of that source, and the date/time of the last scan. To view this information, configure a CI form and add the Sources related list. This table is populated automatically when the Discovery plugin is enabled.
