Match a condition

Use the Match operation to specify conditions that must be met in order for the discovery process to continue. If these conditions are not met, the discovery process terminates.


  1. Select Match from the Operation list in one of the following locations:
    • the Identification Sections or Connectivity Sections for Service Mapping
    • the Step window for Discovery
  2. You can use an actual string or a variable. You can also use values from temporary tabular variables: from a specific field or a specific column in a table sequentially, starting from the first row. For more information, see Useful shortcuts in Pattern Designer.
  3. To add more conditions, click the plus icon.


The following configuration is an example of the Match operation.
Field Value
Hierarchy Applications > Business Integration Software
CI Type IBM WMB HTTP Listener
Pattern WMB HTTP Listener On Unix Pattern
Section Identification for HTTP
Step number and Name 1. Check process name to match http lstnr

During discovery of an IBM WMB HTTP Listener, use the Match operation to check the process name.
