Bulk CI Changes

The Best Practice - Bulk CI Changes plugin enables you to record a single change proposal that will be linked to all affected CIs.

You can use Best Practice - Bulk CI Changes for change processes that use the following:
  • Proposed Change to update CI data
  • Affected CI related list to track impacted CIs
  • change requests based on a single CI Class
If Best Practice - Bulk CI Changes is activated, then the following changes take place within a change request:
  • For change requests with no CIs, Associate CIs displays the CI class on the change request by default and the Reference field, to change the configuration class, displays all the classes that are grouped under the CI class value on the change request. For example, if the CI class on the change request is Server, then you can only select a class that is grouped under Server.
  • For change request with CIs, Associate CIs displays the class of the last associated CI. For example, if the last CI associated was Linux Server, then the configuration class displays Linux Server by default.
