  • Location: System Properties [sys_properties] table.
glide.class.upgrade.enabled Flag for allowing class upgrade during identification and reconciliation.
  • Type: true | false
  • Default value: true
  • Location: System Properties [sys_properties] table.
glide.class.downgrade.enabled Flag for allowing class downgrades during identification and reconciliation.
  • Type: true | false
  • Default value: true

glide.class.switch.enabled Flag for allowing class switching during identification and reconciliation.
  • Type: true | false

glide.identification_engine.skip_duplicates.threshold The maximum number of CIs that can be in a set of duplicate CIs to allow identification to process the duplicate CIs according to the setting of glide.identification_engine.skip_duplicates.

If the number of duplicate CIs exceeds the threshold, then identification processes the duplicate CIs as if glide.identification_engine.skip_duplicates is set to false.

  • Type: Integer
  • Default value: 5
  • Location: Add to the System Properties [sys_properties] table.
glide.identification_engine.skip_duplicates Controls how identification processes a small set of duplicate CIs.
  • When true: If the number of duplicate CIs is less than the threshold specified by glide.identification_engine.skip_duplicates.threshold, then one of the duplicate CIs is picked as a match and gets updated. For the rest of the duplicate CIs, the CMDB_CIs' discovery_source field is set to 'Duplicate'.
  • When false: Matching a CI fails, and an error is logged.
  • Type: true | false
