CMDB classifications

CMDB classifications are groups of configuration items (CIs) that share the same attributes and are stored in their own table. Classifications allow administrators to define the hierarchy of CIs within the CMDB. A CI class refers to the actual table name in the instance database. In that context, CI Type is a friendly name that a CI is known by, such as computer, router, or printer.

As good practice, keep CI classifications as simple as possible.
