Finalize a Discovery pattern

After you finish defining your pattern, make it ready for use by Discovery.

Before you begin

Role required: admin, discovery_admin

About this task

To finalize a pattern after creating or updating it:
  • Save: Save all the information you defined for the pattern to create a draft. You can continue working on this draft at any time. Discovery does not use draft patterns for discovery. To save the pattern, right-click in the header bar and select Save from the context menu.
  • Run command: Actually run the pattern on the relevant configuration item (CI) to check that operations you defined for it are correct. It is recommended to always check your pattern before activating it. To execute the pattern, provide the parameter for connecting to the CI, and then click Connect. If there are no errors, you can activate or save your pattern.
  • Activate: Activating a pattern creates a new active version, which Discovery can now use. The state of the draft version changes to History.
