Process classification Process classification in Discovery tracks services, such as database servers, running on computer CIs in your ServiceNow instance. Discovery classifies processes during the exploration phase, after identifying devices in the Computer [cmdb_ci_computer] table and its extensions. Like device classification, process classification has its own classification criteria and also has the ability to launch probes. Unlike device classification, process classification creates child configuration items (CI) with Runs on::Runs relationships. By default, Discovery includes classifications for most common processes. For information on how Discovery creates and maintains dependent relationships between CIs, including processes, see Application Dependency Mapping. Computer CI classificationWhen Discovery identifies a computer CI, it triggers an active processes probe to explore the computer CI further. Process classification workflowDiscovery compares the data from the active processes probe to the classification criteria.Create a Discovery process classificationA process classification allows Discovery to create a particular CI type from information gathered during the identification and exploration phases. On classification script objectsAn On classification script can call the following script objects to further customize an application record.Process handlersDiscovery process handlers prevent the creation of duplicate CIs by filtering out parameters known to have inconsistent values before process classification occurs.

Discovery classification debuggingTo log debugging information about classifications, add the following system property.
